Another school year is upon us, and we have been busy preparing for it. We trust that your child is eager and ready to go as well. As we embark upon this adventure, there are some things that we would like you to know.
Students will be responsible for taking notes and studying for quizzes and tests.
Periodically, we will send home folders with your child’s work. We ask that you look through the papers with your child. It is a great way to discuss what he/she has been learning in school and to keep on top of grades. You may keep the papers at home but send back the signature paper. Your signature acknowledges that you have received the papers.
To encourage pride in their work, points may be added to many assignments for accuracy in spelling and grammar, first and last name, and neatness.
Please check Skyward (when it becomes accessible). Skyward will let you see your child’s averages for all subjects. You will be able to see grades before papers are sent home. We try to enter grades as quickly as possible.
To help students prepare for junior high next year, we encourage them to use the assignment books provided to keep track of assignments. By sixth grade, students need to be taking on more of this responsibility themselves. We also expect students to hand in assignments when they are asked for. Students need to be organized well enough to be able to locate papers in a timely fashion.
We thank you for your cooperation and involvement in your child’s education. We are here to do all we can to help your child learn. All we ask is that each student puts forth his/her best effort and is cooperative and respectful of the learning process.
