Agenda Book - We would like parents to check the agenda daily to see that homework is completed. Wednesday Folders - Blue folders will be sent home each Wednesday. Please check your child’s folder, remove all papers, and return any necessary forms.
Homework -Students will have weekly spelling, cursive and reading assignments for homework. Reading Minutes - Students are required to read 100 minutes each week. These minutes are to be recorded and initial by parent on reading log. In addition, three reading responses must be written each week on reading log. Math - Homework is assigned several times throughout the week. There will be other assignments and projects on occasion. Your child should have their homework written in their agenda spiral each day. Daily Work - Class work becomes homework if not completed during class or study hall. Class work is considered late if not handed in the following morning.
Grading Policy Grades will be weighted as follows: Daily Work: 60% Assessments: 40% Students are allowed to redo assignments that are below a 70. They may earn up to a 70 for corrected work. It is up to the student to complete the work and return it within a week of the original due date. Make-up work-Students will be responsible for completing missed class work. Students will have one day to make up work for each day they were absent from school (2 days out=2 additional days for completing work).

Rewards - Students will receive tickets for good behavior. Every ten tickets may be redeemed for a "You Rock” coupon which in turn can by used to “purchase” special privileges.
