My name is Megan Stratton and I teach 5th grade at Monforton Elementary School. I am a Montana Native, born in Helena, Montana. I attended Montana State University and received a degree in Elementary Education, a minor in Early Childhood Development, an endorsement in Reading, and a Masters Degree in Technology. I started teaching 2nd grade at Radley Elementary in East Helena. After teaching there for 2 years I moved back to Bozeman. On April 18, 2016 we welcomed our son, Michael, into the world. I love being outdoors regardless of the season. I enjoy biking, fishing, and hiking in the summer months and in the winter I can be found skiing or reading a book in front of the fire. My family and I love to travel and are always looking for opportunities to learn more about the world. Can you tell what historical landmark I am standing in front of? (hint: It’s in New England)
Grades in 5th through 8th grade are split into content and academic behaviors. Students will receive a content grade that aligns with the following scale:
A: 90 – 100%
B: 80 – 89%
C: 70 – 79%
D: 60 – 69%
F: 0 – 59%
Students will receive academic behavior grades for each course in Responsibility, Organization, Attitude, and Respect (ROAR).
- Responsibility-listens actively, participates and contributes, works well collaboratively.
- Organization-prioritizes, sets goals anticipating needs and hurdles, properly manages time and meets deadlines
- Attitude-demonstrates perseverance and persistence in pursuit of excellence
- Respect-actively involved in a way that is safe, responsible, respectful, positive and kind.
These grades will align with the following scale:
3- Proficient The student demonstrates this attribute. She or he rarely requires any prompting and often models this attribute for others.
2.5 All of Developing and significant effort towards improving this attribute is apparent.
2 Developing The student sometimes demonstrates this attribute and requires frequent reminders and support from the teacher.
1 Emerging The student seldom demonstrates this attribute and requires constant reminders and support from the teacher.
4 Advanced The student always demonstrates this attribute without prompting, and encourages/helps others to do the same
3.5 All of Proficient and significant effort towards improving this attribute is apparent.
“I” Insufficient Evidence The student makes no effort in demonstrating this effort
In 5th Grade, student work is assessed in a different way. ‘Grades’ for each unit in each subject are divided into 3 parts: Progress, Process, and Performance. We call it ‘3P’s Assessment’.
3P’s Assessment forms will be sent home attached to all the worked turned in at the end of each unit. If at anytime you would like to see your student’s current grades, please log into Infinite Campus or contact me.
