    Homework Overview

    • Student planners, homework recorded in planner from 9:05-9:20 each day. Students who are absent or arrive late are responsible for filling out the planner during their free time, recess time, or at home. I have a missing work folder( while you were out…) for students as they return ,it will be placed on the students’ desks.
    • Homework could take 40-60 minutes each Tu, W, Th, F night. Usually no weekend homework; a math review handout and reading. I will include writing as well. Some may be finished in class.

    Late & Re-Do Work

    Work may be re-submitted to improve grade. I encourage (beg) students to do this.

    Absent students are responsible for gathering and completing missing work upon their return. I like to receive late work within a week of the absence.

    State Testing: No schedule yet, usually begins two weeks after spring break.

    6th grade: Math, English & Language Arts (ELA), 4 testing days
