They are in October and February. Students will discuss their learning, show quality work, and discuss ways to improve. All conferences will be held in the gym during times found on the district calendar. Please attend at a time that works for your family.
This year your child will use an assignment notebook. Your child will be responsible for entering each daily assignment in the notebook. We have found the assignment notebooks help students stay organized and also provide a medium for parents and teachers to communicate. I do not check assignment notebooks for parent signatures. DE students will be given a notebook at the start of the school year, and students need to be accountable for their homework.
Take Home Papers
Students will bring home finished work daily. Please set aside time to look over their work, offer comments, and give praise. Your child will enjoy hearing your enthusiastic remarks as you discuss assignments together. Writing assignments will take a bit longer to get returned to the student. I enjoy making comments on their papers and take the time to enjoy every paper.
We believe homework is important. It is a valuable aid in helping students make the most of their experience in school. Parents are key to making homework a positive experience for their child. Therefore, we are asking parents to make homework a top priority, provide needed supplies, help set up a daily homework time, and provide praise and support. We are asking parents to check over finished assignments and sign their child’s assignment notebook each night. We would like students to do the work on their own and only ask for help after they have given it their best effort. Please contact me if you have questions or problems. LATE WORK will not be accepted for full credit. There will be a 25% reduction in a grade for 1 day late, 50% reduction in a grade for 2 days late, and the third day or later will result in no credit given. A student will have no longer than 2 school days for each day of absence to complete makeup work.
