Student Overview


-Math homework is given out on Monday and will be due Friday. The spiral math review is meant to practice current skills and review skills already taught in class.

-Students will be expected to use their student planner to fill in any extra homework for the day/week.

-Please feel free to check your child’s homework but leave errors. This helps me to plan the next steps to success!

-Students are required to complete a reading log each month. The student needs to read for at least 20 minutes for 12 days out of the month. They will record their efforts on the reading log.

Absent Work

-If your student is absent from school, they can turn in make-up work by the following Monday.

-The student is responsible for checking the absent folder and asking the teacher for any other missed work.

Late Work

-Late work will be accepted until Monday after the assignment was due, but only partial credit will be given.

-Please feel free to email or call me, if your child will need extra time on any assignment or homework.
