Dear Parents,Here's some important information that you might find helpful:
- Planners: Please be sure to sign your child's planner daily in the box located at the bottom of the page. Each time your child completes their homework, reads and fills in their log, and gets their planner signed, they get a sticker on their incentive charts located at the front of their planner. When they fill up their charts, they get a free homework pass.
- Tests and other important events will also be listed in their planners.
- Test Folders: Each week folders will be coming home with your child with tests, quizzes, and other graded items. Please be sure to sign each item and return it to school the next day.
Reading Logs: Students will be required to read daily and complete a reading log as part of their nightly homework. This is a GRADED assignment.
