Grading: This year your child will be receiving A’s,
B’s, C’s, D’s, and F’s instead of O’s, S’s and N’s. Because it is often a difficult transition
for many parents and students to make, I encourage you to log on to Parent
Connect weekly to monitor your child’s progress in my class. As a parent, you have access to my gradebook
so that you will know your child’s percentage grade at all times for each
subject area. Working together will make
the transition smooth, and will help ensure academic success for your child. Students may correct work that is returned to
them for an averaged grade. The
corrected work must be submitted to the teacher within two weeks of receiving
it. Tests and quizzes may NOT be
corrected for an improved grade.
Homework/Black 2 pocket Homework Folder: Parents can help by giving
children a quiet place and time to work. Homework consists of nightly reading
(at least 20 minutes), responding to reading (which is the nightly reading log),
practicing math facts, and finishing any classwork that was not completed. Students will be given some time in class to
work on assignments, but any unfinished work must be completed at home and
returned the following day. Each student
will have a 3-ring AVID W.O.R.K. binder that will go home each night and must
be returned each day. The binder
includes a black 2 pocket folder with a label that says, “Homework.” Inside the black folder there are labels
indicating that Math is due daily and the reading response log is due each
Friday. Multiplication tests will be
given almost daily in class at the beginning of the year. If your child forgets his/her homework at
home, please do not bring it to the office. I promise you it will not be the
end of the world. By not bringing it, it also teaches responsibility.
sure to check “Parent Connect” frequently.
There you can access all current results of tests and classwork, along
with any missing work. Please make sure
that the email associated with this account is up to date. I will be using “Parent Connect” to send
emails to parents throughout the year.
CNUSD Resource Access: Students have access to
CNUSD resources from their home computer.
Students have been taught how to log in and access this information.
