  • Homework Routine homework

    The homework routine requires the students to complete the assignments listed on my weekly class newsletter. Refer to the right column of the newsletter. Parents, your job is to guide them through each task, check off the task each time and then make sure the slip is signed by you and returned to school each Friday.  I then pay the students for being responsible. The only other materials that are returned to school each day is the student's reading textbooks and poetry notebook.  Thank you in advance for your support.
