Assignments

Students/parents; find weekly assignments under newsletter section! As fourth graders I feel the students should be learning responsibility with their assignment notebook. Therefore, they are responsible for writing down their assignments and gathering their materials at the end of the day. I will not be checking and signing everyone's notebook. If you feel your child needs help with their organization, please contact me. If your child receives a D or F on any test or quiz, it needs to be signed by a parent and returned to school the next day. Every child will have the opportunity to retake a test or quiz once. The most current grade will remain the new grade. Depending on how long the test or quiz is, students may retake it in sections. A retake may look like a written test, a narrative, or even an oral test restating the correct or right way to do the problem.
