Parent Homework Thank you for taking the time to tell me about your child. If you did not tell me about your child “in a million words or less”, you can grab a letter on the way out.
Binders Your child’s binder helps organize all handouts, tests, quizzes, etc. by being assigned designated sections/pages. Regardless of the grade earned, everything gets signed. You should be signing grades about every 2 weeks. Your child’s binder gets graded at the end of every quarter and counts as a quiz grade. I try my best to update the information in the parent portal on a weekly basis.
