MAP Testing

Homework

Remember homework is the student's responsibility. We are still learning to be responsible in completing homework assignments and to bring them to school with us. We have had a few tears when homework has been forgotten or misplaced and detention has been served. I let the students know I realize they are still getting into the swing of things and are ok. I also let them know it will become a problem if/when it becomes a habit to not have the assignments. We'll get there! Encourage your daughter to check the agenda and be sure she has everything needed packed in the book bag. As a school, we do not allow students to return to the classroom to get "forgotten" supplies for homework assignments. However, they are encouraged to solve this issue themselves by calling a friend. :)
