Grades

Graded work will come home every Thursday. Students will be getting their first grades back from math, reading, and writing this week. I know this can be very intimidating so we are having many class and individual discussions about grades, what they mean, and how to handle a good and/or bad grade.

I understand that this is a learning curve for students, so I will be giving plenty of opportunities for a student to redo an assignment if the expectations haven't been met. Please don't be startled if your students receives a grade that seems to be below than average for him or her. It might take a week or two to understand what is to be expected and how being graded works!

This next few weeks will be very important for students to learn that trying their very best is essential. I look forward to celebrating with your student and all the great accomplishments they will achieve!

Homework

  • Please make sure to go through your child's folder often to view any students work, important paperwork etc.
