Welcome to Kernersville Middle School for your 7th Grade year
My name is Mr. Walsh, and I am looking forward to sharing this school year with you – a complete team
takes a trinity to be successful: parents, a focused student and a hard-working teacher who strives to be
inspirational. This year will be exciting and fun, yes, but also meaningful and purposeful. If you have any
questions, please contact me through the school at (336) 703-42556 or by email at
Binder (Any size)
Lined paper Pencils or Pens index cards plus one baggie(magic markers are suggested)A powerful imagination and willingness to work as a team!!!
Binder – Journals must be brought to class every day. All homework, tests and project
dates must be recorded in your Planers. You must have some sort of notebook for Write Into the Day
exercises, notes, classwork, graded papers, etc.Classwork (CW)-When CW is given, it is your responsibility to complete assignments IN CLASS.
Graded CW assignments must be completed in class and turned in on time or points may be lost. If
classwork needs extended time and it is completed for homework, I will still consider the assignment
on time. It is your responsibility to finish all work in a timely manner. Late work is unacceptable! One day late
results in 10 points deducted from the grade. An additional 10 points will be deducted if the assignment
is two days late.
Tests/Projects-Tests will be announced in advance. Projects will be assigned throughout the year
and you will be given plenty of time to complete them.
All English / Language Arts assignments will be out of 100 points. Projects will typically include more than one graded part, resulting in more than one grade per overall project.
Breakdown of the Grading System:
Tests 30%Homework 10%
Below 60 F
If you are absent from class, you are expected to make up missed work. When you return, you are to
check the Assignment Board and Team Website for missed assignments. If there is any confusion, or
you are unsure, ask me! Make-up work is your responsibility; however should you have any questions
or need help, please ask me! You will have as many days as you were absent to make up work and still
receive full credit. Late work will results in 10 points off for every day late day. All assignments can be
made up at any time for a 50% or more, depending on the assignment.
