Mr. Garner


Welcome to 5th grade! I'm excited to be your child's teacher. This is my fifth year teaching at Central (16th overall). I’m looking forward to a wonderful year together. Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions or concerns. 


Daily assignments will be posted through the Remind app.

Central School Assignment Policy


Central Intermediate has a school wide assignment policy.  Classroom tests and assessments will have different guidelines as determined by the teacher.   All assignments are expected to be turned in consistently and on time.  All classroom assignments will fit into the following criteria:

Assignment Corrections

  • All assignments can be corrected up to 100%. Students will not be able to correct assessments/tests or projects.

  • “Missing” assignments may not be corrected.

  • Assignments for unexcused absences may not be corrected.

  • It is at the teacher’s discretion for how long students will have to make corrections on a particular assignment. This may vary based on the type of assignment and work required.

  • Students may be requested to complete a variation of the assignment, so that it is an accurate depiction of the student’s understanding.

Incomplete Assignments

  • If an assignment is not turned in 100% completed to the teacher’s expectations, it will be returned to the student and called “incomplete.”

  • A student will receive a one-time 10% deduction from the assignments grade for the assignment not being 100% complete when it was due. 

Missing Assignments

  • An assignment that is not turned in on the date it is due will be considered “missing”.

  • If an assignment is “missing”, students must turn it in by the third day or it may result in a zero. The only exception to this rule is for students that have an excused absence.

  • A student will receive a one-time 10% deduction from the assignments grade for the assignment not being turned in on the day it is due. 

  • Students may not be allowed to correct “missing” assignments.

P.A.S.S. (Providing Academic Support Systems)

  • Tiered intervention/support system to help with assignment completion

  • All incomplete/missing assignments will be logged and tracked by each teacher. Parents and students are encouraged to check TeacherEase on a regular basis for late or missing assignments.

  • Non-academic assignments/forms/parent signatures will not count as incomplete or missing assignments.  

    • Step 1: Teacher/Student conference after 4 incomplete / missing assignments.

    • Step 2: Teacher/Student conference after 8 incomplete/missing assignments with classroom conference for assignment completion.

    • Step 3: Parent/Teacher/Student conference/ communication after 12 incomplete / missing assignments.
