2019 SEMESTER TEST EXEMPTIONS

Our Mission at the Sixth Grade Center is to make the transition from elementary school to secondary as smooth as possible.  We desire to prepare our students not only for the 7th grade but to prepare them for the challenges of life. One of the many transitions they have experienced this year is Semester Testing.  


Exemptions for the upcoming Semester Tests apply to the last nine weeks.  Unlike the Owasso 7th & 8th Grades, there will be no block scheduling at the Sixth Grade Center due to end of year activities such as Spring Fling, Yearbook signing and the Dodgeball Tournament. During Semester Tests on May 20, 21 and 22, students will continue with their daily schedule.  You must still call the office at 918-274-3048 if your student is absent. Students will not be released without a parent or guardian.


Please note that an exemption from a Semester Test means that your student is exempt because they have met the requirements below.  Your student can choose to take the semester tests to improve their grade.  


2019 Semester Test Exemption Guidelines

To be exempt from the last nine weeks Semester Test Finals, students must comply with the following guidelines:

“A” in course and 3 or less absences beginning Monday, March 25 through May 16

“B” in course and 2 or less absence beginning Monday, March 25 through May 16

“C” in course and 1 or no absence(s)  beginning Monday, March 25 through May 16

The Owasso Sixth Grade Center will have semester tests on the following dates:

May 20: Elective and Language Arts Semester Tests

May 21: Science and Geography Semester Tests

May 22: Math Semester Tests


Examples:

--  If your student has an “A” in Language Arts, an Elective, Math, Science or Geography and has 3 or less absences in that class between the dates of March 25 through May 16, they will be exempt from their Semester Test in THAT class for THAT hour.

--  If your student has a “B” in Language Arts, an Elective, Math, Science or Geography and has 2 or less absences in that class between the dates of March 25 through May 16, they will be exempt from their Semester Test in THAT class for THAT hour.  

--  If your student has a “C” in Language Arts, an Elective, Math, Science or Geography and has 1 or less absence in that class between the dates of March 25 and May 16, they will be exempt from THAT class for THAT hour.  


If a student is exempt and they are not at school, they are not missing any assignments. Whether exempt or not, school will be in session from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  If you have any questions, feel free to call the office at 918-274-3020. Thank you for your continued support of the Owasso Sixth Grade Center.
