Davis/Martin Weekly Update

January 4 - January 8

Dear Parents,

Happy New Year and welcome back! This first week back means we will be working on refreshing school/classroom expectations and routines. This week also marks the beginning of third quarter. Be on the lookout for second quarter report cards and other papers being sent home on Friday. Some of these documents will need to be signed and returned.

HOMEWORK:

  • Weekly Reading Log: 20 minutes of reading, 5 nights per week, DUE MONDAYS (this is averaged into your child's reading grade)

  • Students will most always have math homework every night through the week, Fridays and weekends off.

REMINDERS

  • Have you downloaded the Nettleton app? If not, go to your app store and search for Nettleton Public Schools. You will be able to email staff, receive information regarding school closing and much more!

  • If your child is going home a different way than usual, please call the school to let us know. Many parents will email or text teachers but often times teachers have their phones off. We want to make sure that your child makes it home safely!
