Homework
I wanted to stress again the importance of the 7th graders doing their homework every night.  This gives them an extra opportunity to practice the Math and Language Arts concepts that we are discussing during the week. It is important that they get as much practice as they can.  There is not always enough time during the school day for the students to get enough practice.  It also allows me to see if they are understanding the concepts well enough that I can move on to other objectives.

Homework is ultimately your child’s responsibility, but please remind them of the importance of it.  Thank you for helping your students succeed in their school work.

Folder/Planner
Please make sure that your 7th grader is giving you their planner to sign each day.  Also, please make sure that they are bringing their folders home and returning them to school.  This is the best way to communicate with me.
