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.
You can expect your child to have homework nightly (Monday thru Thursday). Practicing the concepts we learn in class is very important to help students understand and retain the information being taught. Homework consists of a Weekly Work assignment that is sent home every Monday (students may turn this assignment in as many times as they’d like to be checked throughout the week) and is due on Friday, as well as book work assignments that typically consist of 5-10 problems related to concepts learned in class that day (these are due the following day).
It is the responsibility of each student to work towards improvement of his or her grade. Students will receive letter grades in the subject area this year and also an outstanding (O); satisfactory (S); or needs improvement (N) in skill areas of each subject. Here is the scoring reference:
A 100-90 B 89-80 C 79-70 D 69-60 F 59-50
Report Cards - Family Access
Secondary 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. 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 the school office about Family Access or learn more here.Skyward is how I communicate with parents about grades. If your child is failing, it is most likely because students are missing a weekly work. Please check Skyward for any “0’s” or missing assignments.
