Here are some things you need to know to help your child have a successful year. Your child will be required to copy his/her homework assignment in the planner each day. If your child comes to class without a planner, he/she will be required to write the assignment on notebook paper so do not allow your child to tell you the assignment was not copied because he/she had no planner. I will check the planner before your child leaves my class to make sure the assignment is copied correctly. You will know I have done this because there will be a line drawn in ink through the assignment. By checking the planner each night, you will know when important tests, assignments and projects are due. If there is no assignment given for that night, the child will be required to write the word none to indicate this. You need to pay close attention to test dates because you need to make sure your child brings home graded tests for you signature. If your child returns the test signed by you, he/she will receive five extra points. All assignments will have the same grade value. If your child is absent from school, you can check the school's web page for any missed assignments because I will be posting them each day. In order for your child to have a successful year, it is important for us to keep in contact with each other. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at the school during my planning period from 8:30 until 9:10, or you may e-mail me at email@example.com. I want to thank you in advance for your help in making this the best possible year for your child.
