By working together, we can create a successful learning environment for students at school and at home.
Students will be expected to read at least 30 minutes per day. Sometimes this reading will be assigned from the novel we are currently studying. Other times it will be up to the student to select a book for pleasure reading.
Students write the daily agenda and assignments in their planners. Ask your student to see his or her planner to view assigned classwork and homework. Assigned homework will be posted in the classroom and on this website under the "Assignments" tab.
Homework will be given throughout the week. Most homework will be a continuation of assignments that may not have been finished in class, as a way for students to do their best work before turning it in. Any assignment that was not finished in class and completed as homework is expected to be turned in at the beginning of class the following day for full credit.
After an excused absence, it is the student’s responsibility to obtain missing assignments and to make arrangements with me for make-up tests and quizzes. Students must come after school in order to not waste classroom instruction time.GradesStudents and parents can check grades at any time online through Family Access. If you need instructions for Family Access, please contact the school office or learn more here.

Extra Help/Staying After School
All students are expected to meet learning targets and earn passing grades in their classes. For students who need more time or individualized instruction to be successful, opportunities for extra help are available. Students are encouraged to seek extra help on their own as soon as they recognize that they are struggling. Teachers may also assign students to come in for extra help when they see a student falling behind or struggling. Teachers are available before and after school to provide extra help for students and will provide a schedule of when they are available in their classroom. Special arrangements can also be made by contacting the teacher directly.
