By working together, we can create a successful learning environment for students at school and at home. Here are some highlights of what's happening in our classroom.
HomeworkHomework is highly important and serves as extra practice and study. Students will be given a Homework Packet on Monday and it is due on Friday of the same week. You can expect your child to have homework nightly. Reading is very important, and students will document at least 20 minutes daily. A daily math assignment may be sent home in the packet to reinforce class concepts and students are strongly encouraged to practice math facts at home. They will also be responsible for learning their spelling words for the spelling test on Friday. I review homework packets on Friday when they are turned in, but often don't grade it. I do record an effort grade which reflects your child's willingness to turn homework in completed and on time.
GradesStudents will receive an O, S, P, or N for grades, and it is their responsibility to try to improve their grades. Students will earn the following depending on their performance of grade level work; outstanding (O); satisfactory (S); progressing (P); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject.
Report Cards-Family AccessElementary school report cards are issued at the end of each trimester and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy. Parents can keep tabs on their children's progress and their problems by checking online in Family Access, a secure system that also allows you to check attendance and more. Account information is provided to each family by the school office at the start of the school year. Talk to your school office about Family Access or learn more here. | Family Access Log-In
