Agenda *Located inside the binder* Your child’s behavior and assignments will be recorded in the agenda every day. It will be a way for us to communicate on a daily basis. I will put a sticker in the box for the day if your child had great behavior all day. If your child got a checkmark, that will also be recorded in the agenda. Please sign the agenda every night. Your child will be rewarded each time it is signed.
