Each week every student has to complete a Reading Log to be signed by the parent or guardian. Each Reading Log consists of 20 minutes of independent reading each day. The Reading Log is graded as a TEST GRADE each week. Late Reading Logs are reduced by a FULL LETTER GRADE for every day that it is late.
Each 9 weeks every student is required to complete 9 Accelerated Reader tests coming from their Library books. Students must complete AR tests at school. AR Tests are not available for home use. This is counted as the PROJECT GRADE for each nine weeks. The PROJECT GRADE is 30% of the final grade!!!
HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS are at a minimum in my class. The most important aspect is to have your child READ every evening to complete their READING LOG.
SUPPLIES that are always needed are #2 pencils, paper, composition books, colored pencils and markers. This is very appreciated.
You can check your student's grades on POWER SCHOOL under the PARENT PORTAL. I update this site on a regular basis.
If you have any questions or concerns about anything to do about your child please call me. Your child's SAFETY and EDUCATION is my top priority.
