Parent newsletters can be found on the school website. They are updated at the beginning of each month (http://fk-uusd- ca.schoolloop.com) Phone: We have voicemail. My phone number is 949-7740 x. 115. Planners: Write a note in the planner and instruct your child to bring it to me. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check planners daily. No planner should be blank. Your student may have homework on Fridays. Missing assignments are stamped in the planner. Any missing assignments must be turned in the following morning. No credit will be given for assignments after this time.
Students who turn in the missing assignments the next morning will have the assignments re- stamped as “late”. The majority of homework is unfinished class work. AR is an important part of homework.
Students are required to read an AR book for 25-30 min. 5 nights/week. Goals are written in the back of your student’s planner. Updates are given every few weeks. AR is part of your student’s report card reading grade. Meeting the goal earns a grade of “A” for the AR portion.
Students are updated on their progress after each quiz. You can now log on to Accelerated Reader from home and check your child’s progress. You have the option of receiving an email from the website each time your child takes a quiz. The information for how to do this is included in your packet.
Consists of two components: the adopted math textbook and Accelerated Math. Homework usually comes from the math workbook. We review it in class together. Homework is strictly credit/no credit. Your child’s math homework grade is the percentage of homework turned in.
Accelerated Math provides individualized computer-generated math practice for your student based on 6 th grade standards. Provides remediation and enrichment as needed. Final grades include the work done in Accelerated Math. Special Note: Students who do not know the multiplication facts find math especially difficult. Please work on them at home.
All students are expected to use the planners. Absent students must make up missed assignments. An extra day is given for each day absent. Test grades are recorded in the planner for parent information.
Progress reports will be sent home approximately half way through the trimester. However, you may request one at any time from any of your student’s teachers. Extra credit work is not given for improving poor grades. Students are expected to do their best work always.
Students receive a red stamp in their planner for poor choices made in class. Behavior notices can be issued for both classroom and playground behavior. Two notices in 30 days will result in an office referral. Upper graders may not engage in “boyfriend/girlfriend” discussions or notes (even as the “wingman”).
