     I do not give homework everyday; 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. 

        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 
Parents can access their student’s information from any computer with an internet connection. The MyPolkSchools 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.
