Team Mosaic encourages individuality while embracing our community and developing global awareness.
Naturally, each teacher has a unique style of classroom management. However, the following expectations are the same in each Team Mosaic class as well as the entire Northside campus.
- Act Responsibly
- Be Respectful
- Communicate Effectively
Homework is a valuable part of our learning process. As such, students are expected to complete assignments on time. The school has an after-school tutoring program if a student needs extra assistance. We ask caring adults to please monitor students’ homework each night by checking assignments and class activities in the agenda book. Homework is due on the specified date. Full credit for the assignment is available only for work completed on time. Assignments turned in one day late receive a maximum of 80% credit. Assignments turned in two days late receive a maximum of 60%. Assignments that are three or more days late will receive no more than 50%. Each teacher will let their students know when no credit is given for assignments due to extreme tardiness.
Extra credit will be accepted under terms established by individual team teachers. Extra credit is not a way to “boost” a grade at the end of a grading period. Extra credit is an enrichment opportunity to encourage deeper understanding for those who choose to participate.
Homework Policy Reminder
Work missed due to absence is to be made up within the time specified by the teacher. Typically, the student will receive one day per day absent to make up missed work.

Phone: During school hours, call 376-4403 and leave a message. We prefer not to take phone calls during valuable instructional time, but we will return your call as soon as possible. In the unlikely event of an emergency, ask to speak with Mr. Burton, Mrs. Notestine, or Mrs. Yates.
As teachers, we are committed to contacting caring adults in an effort to communicate successes and opportunities for improvement. It is sometimes necessary to schedule a conference among students, team teachers and caring adults. For Team Mosaic, those conferences may be scheduled during the school day between 9:40am and 11:00am.
