An assignment book will be distributed to each student. This assignment book will be used daily to record assignments, reminders, etc. Each night the assignment book will go home with your child. Please check the assignment book each night and review the assignments with your child. A parent signature is NOT required unless a student demonstrates frequency of missing/incomplete assignments. Assignments are also posted on Edmodo. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you may write them in your child’s assignment book or message on Edmodo.
Homework binder and Friday FoldersEach student has a homework binder and Friday folder. The homework binder contains the assignment book as well as any homework for the day. In each binder, there will be sections for math, science/social studies, and reading. Students will use the binders to stay organized and learn the organizational skills that will be important as they move on to middle school. Friday folders will be sent home on Fridays in the homework binders. This folder has two sections – “Keep at Home” and “Return to School" and will contain work that has been completed throughout the week. Please send the folder back to school with your child each Monday with anything from the “Bring Back” side. All tests and/or the Friday folder form must be signed by a parent. All these papers will be given to you at the end of each trimester. I am keeping them for the duration of each trimester to check student progress.
Homework PolicyHomework is essential in order to reinforce what was learned. Students will have various assignments to complete throughout the course of the school year. It is my hope that all students are prepared with each assignment every day. If a student does not have an assignment and/or it is incomplete, it will be recorded in Class Dojo under which class it occurred. Please review your weekly Class Dojo updates and reinforce the importance of homework with your child at home.
Book OrdersI will send home monthly book orders from Scholastic. Remember, ordering is optional. If ordering, please do not include cash. All checks must be made payable to Scholastic. When book order forms are handed out, students will be given a due date for all orders. Please try to hand your order in on time. If ordering online, our class code is FPKHC.
Students love to celebrate their birthdays at school. If you wish to send in a NON-EDIBLE item on your child's birthday, that would be fine. Thank you for your cooperation.
