· Classroom rules/procedures:
Mrs. Potter and I will send home a conduct sheet the first week of school showing conduct in each subject for the whole week. We will also write notes home using this so please remember to check your students sheet as well as sign it at the end of each week. We will both also be making phone calls home in case of an issue or just to tell you how wonderful your child is doing!
Students will have the opportunity to redo one science test and one math test per 9 weeks. Failed test grades will be sent home on Fridays, stapled to the conduct card. Should you want your student to retake a test, please sign and send back their graded work. They will be given a new study guide for the test and a week to give it back to me and retake their test.
This year weekly folders will be sent home on Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays so please be looking for your child's folder on Wednesday evenings.
