     I do not give homework every day; however, I do give it weekly. Homework assignments are written on the board and it is your responsibility to copy the assignment in your agenda as soon as you arrive.

      I do not accept incomplete or late homework. Students who do not COMPLETE homework assignments will receive a zero for the assignment.  You will receive one homework pass each semester; this permits you to bring the assignment to the next class for full credit.  If you have not used the pass at the end of the semester, you will get extra credit when you turn it in.  It is your responsibility to put the pass in a safe place so you do not lose it.  Remember, zeroes do add up very quickly if you are not doing the work. 


Parents: 
        Homework completion is essential for success in school. Homework is given to review and reinforce concepts taught in class. Students are told to write down their homework in their agenda each day. It is displayed on the board for them to copy and should be copied upon entering the classroom every day. 
        Remember, your child will be spending a great deal of time preparing for Florida Assessments for Instruction in Reading (FAIR), Florida Standards Assessments (FSA), and the Writing Progress Monitoring tests this year. We will be using our class time, and your child’s out of class time for those preparations. Please remember that it is your child’s responsibility to do the best he or she can do in preparation for those tests.  My homework policy exists to ensure your child's progress in my class. It is important for your child to adhere to the homework and test schedule if they are to succeed. Your assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.

                                PARENT PORTAL 
 If you have never signed up before, come by the office to obtain the PIN needed to attach your student to your account.

Parents can access their student’s information from anywhere. The Parent Portal allows parents to check current grades, obtain immunization status, learn if their child had any recorded discipline or attendance issues throughout the day, check their child’s current lunch account balance, and even see what their child purchased in the lunchroom – all before their child comes home from school (and much more!).

                      
 
                 AR Book Finder    
Remember you should be reading an AR book for 20 minutes every night.  You may come in and test any day before school or when you first arrive to my class.  You are allowed to check three books out of our media center at a time; at least one of them as to be an AR book.     

Click above to find out if your book is an AR book..  You should always have an AR book with you.     

Every Friday those who have tested on a book and scored 85 or above on it, will receive a treat!    

There will be a pizza party on Wednesday, October 17th, for all students who have met their goal at 85% testing.  

EXTRA CREDIT:  Reach your AR Goal by Friday October  12th.
