HomeworkYour child will read in school and be asked to reinforce his or her practice by reading to you at home. A daily Reading Log will be sent home, that will need to be signed by your child (Reader) and by you (Listener). A daily math worksheet may be assigned as well to practice the lesson taught that day. Parents are also encouraged to practice addition and subtraction facts with their child. Spelling words and vocabulary will also be a weekly assignment. I review daily homework, but do not grade it. Instead, I record Homework as a Participation grade, which reflects your child’s willingness to turn homework in completed and on time.
GradesIt is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will be graded in skill areas of each subject using a letter system: O: Outstanding, S: Satisfactory, P: Progressing, N: Needs Improvement.Report Cards-Family AccessElementary school report cards are available at the end of each grading period and students are assessed in accordance with Oak Harbor Public Schools board policy.
