Home Access Center: The Home Access Center is an excellent tool that affords parents and students the opportunity to stay up to date on the student's progress as it is posted. For good communication, it is anticipated that parents and students will stay current on the student's progress by accessing the Home Access Center a minimum of once a week. We encourage you to check it together and email teachers if you have any questions. If you have any difficulty accessing it, please contact the office right away for assistance.
HOMEWORK IS ESSENTIAL TO LEARNING
- Homework is... PREVIEW! PRACTICE! PREPARATION!
- It reinforces what is taught in class, it provides verification of understanding to both the student and the teacher, and it prepares students for lessons and assessments.
- The next day's work is often predicated on the understanding of the prior day's assignment. Homework helps students develop self-discipline, responsibility, and the organizational skills necessary for success.
- Twenty percent of the final grade is an average of all homework grades for the quarter, while eighty percent of the final grade is an average of all of the different types of learning assessments (evidence) given in a quarter.
