• Updated: 3:00 P.M. on THURSDAY, February 22, 2018    (Homework listed below!)  
     
    Welcome to Mr. Neault's class website! I look forward to helping your kids improve their language arts skills as well as mature along the way. Below, I will be listing your child's daily homework, so you can always find out what he or she has to get done. Of course, each day I give them time to write the homework in their planners, so you should be able to see it there as well, but this will be another resource for you in case your child loses his or her planner or chooses not to write the homework down correctly.
     
    By 4:30 p.m. each day that it has been updated, you can assume the homework listed is accurate. During the school day I may tinker with it, but by 4:30 p.m. it should be fully updated!
     
    NOTE:  As a rule, I do not let students turn in a homework assignment on the same day I gave it to them, so if your child tells you he or she finished it already, please insist he or she shows it to you.
     
    Also, I encourage you to actually take a few minutes to look through your child's complete work, because my students often make easy-to-fix mistakes that an adult will notice quickly (words left out, no periods on sentences, misspellings, etc.). Just as important, it's a great way to show your child you care about his or her learning!
     
    Finally, thanks for your time, interest, and support in helping your child improve and succeed!
     
    Sincerely,
    Mr. Neault
