Astrocamp DVD-Thank you for your patience while waiting for the Astrocamp DVD.

May 29-Sixth Grade Can Drive supporting the Ronald McDonald House
Have a great week,
Homework-It is my philosophy that homework reinforces concepts introduced in
the classroom and never simply be "busy work". As mentioned at Back to School
Night if your child is taking hours to complete their assignments or the
frustration level is near tears (for either your child or you) please have
them stop. Send a note into school with them and we will be able to work
something out for full credit. Also, vocabulary homework is always the same
and students are welcome to begin making their cards and working on
assignments ahead of time.
Go to this website http://www.sadlier-oxford.com/vocabulary/ and find the
levels A-H (middle and high school) Online Component Center. Here you will
find games and online activities to practice weekly vocabulary units. We are
Gradelink-Not only is Gradelink a great tool for parents, but it is also a
great tool for teachers as well. If a student is absent the assignment will
be listed as a zero or ï¿½incompleteï¿½ until the assignment is turned in.
Once I have received the assignment it will be graded accordingly.
