Dear Parents / Guardians:
Welcome to the start of a new school year! It is a pleasure to have your child as part of our team. Please see below for important information regarding our hallway’s procedures and expectations.
Students will use their agenda on a daily basis to keep track of homework. You may view assignment grades online through Skyward. We encourage students and parents to check Skyward daily for updates to grades! It is a great way to keep track of student progress.
Student Homework Folders and Tiger Folders
Each student has a yellow folder that has been designated as their Homework Folder, which goes home every day with any assignments to be completed for homework. Every Thursday, students will take home a Tiger Folder containing graded assignments, school announcements, and Class Dojo Reports. Signed Class Dojo Reports and the Tiger Folder should be returned by the next day on Friday.
Any assignments, quizzes, or tests (in Thursdays Tiger Folder) with a grade below a 70 can be corrected and re-submitted to receive up to a 70%. Corrections are due back no later than the following Tuesday.
Class Dojo- Conduct
We use Class Dojo to track positive and negative student behaviors. You will receive instructions on how to download and sign up for the Class Dojo app. It is an excellent tool for keeping track of your child’s behavior in class, keep up with classroom announcements, and to contact your child’s teachers easily and quickly. Every Thursday, a printed copy of your child’s Dojo report for that week will be sent home in the Tiger folder for you to review and SIGN. The student is expected to return the signed report by the next day (Friday), but no later than Monday.
Students will receive negative Dojo points for not adhering to our classroom rules.
Students will receive incentives for following the rules, which will allow the student to have lunch on the patio weekly and/or other fun classroom rewards/treats.
It's the student's responsibility to obtain absent work. We recommend that a student returning from an absence attend morning tutorials to touch base with the team of teachers and pick up missed assignments.
Missing work/zeroes are unacceptable. Taking care of all late/missing work as quickly as possible is critical to student success.
Morning tutorials are held from 8:00-8:25. This is an excellent opportunity for students to receive help on assignments, extra tutoring, or receive and work on absent/missing/late work. We highly encourage students to attend if they need help or are missing work!
Progress Reports/Report Cards
Progress reports and report cards are sent out electronically via Skyward. Paper copies can be requested at the Front Office. Please see district calendar for the specific dates.
