Homework

 

In this section you can find the daily homework assignments and school announcements.

  • Some textbooks may be needed to complete the homework. It is important that these textbooks are kept away from food, drink and siblings. Please do not write in textbooks. If notes or questions need to be made, please write them on a sticky note and place them on the corresponding pages.

  • The Math, Grammar and Social Studies books should be covered with a stretchable book sock.

  • Outside of studying for tests homework will consist of any work that was not finished in class that day. Any work that was sent home is due the next day unless otherwise noted. When we begin mutliplication/division facts, it is strongly encouraged students practice their facts daily for mastery. Students will write down their assignments each day in their planner along with it being posted on this webpage. 

  • Test information will be given out at least 3 days in advance. Study guides will be given appropriately. Tests may not be re-taken for any reason. Specifically, reading tests will not require students to study outside of class. Students are allowed to reference the text and any other other related packet/papers. Religion: For the Chapter review pages which are used as tests, students are given time to work with other classmates, may use their book and take it home to have parents review it.

  • Grades will be posted to PowerSchool as students complete assignments/ tests. Please remember that one test does not determine the grade you will receive in the subject. It is very important to read the directions slowly, carefully, and to take your time. 

  • A score of a 60% will be entered into PowerSchool if  a students receives lower than a 60% on a test.

  • Please keep all papers in the portfolio UNLESS they have a grade, check mark or star at the top
  • Due to increase in homework not being returned, students will start getting a 'homework slip' if they do not complete their homework (this will also be in additiont to 5 tickets being taken). This slip will have their name, date and the assignment they missed. Students are to get a parent signature on this slip and return it with the missing assignment the next day. If a student receives too many red slips, they will have a conferecne with myself and either Mrs. Edwards or Mrs. Kehoe to figure out a homework plan
  • Staring 4/25/18 tests that include writing answers will have two grades. One will be a content grade and one will be a grammar application grade. Students who fail to capitalize and punctuate, spell words that are on the test incorrectly or spell words they should know in 3rd grade will loose points towards this grammar application grade. This grammar application grade will fall under the English section in PowerSchool. The Ch. 4 & 5 Social Studies test is the first test this GA grade will apply. SInce it is the first time this GA is applied, I have only taken off half a point for each error. Going forward, it wil be one full point.
