A Note About Homework

Homework can be accessed through the My Week at a Glance tab. 

According to the Parent/Student Handbook, your child can have around 60 minutes of homework plus reading time. Projects may take longer.
Student completing homework
If you find that your child’s homework is consistently taking over 90 minutes (with their sustained focus), please let us know.

Students and parents should  sign up with Campus to receive notifications for your student's current grades and missing assignments. Campus can send you a notification when assignments are scored (including missing assignments) or grade changes (below a certain %).

If something extraordinary were to occur on a school evening and your child was unable to complete their homework, please send a signed letter with them to school.

Late work will only be accepted until the end of the unit of which it’s from, and may receive no credit depending on how late it is.  Please check middle school late work policy.  

Middle School Success 

The power of "Yet" ......

A time of growth as we move through important  skills together as a team.

Please note, we are working really hard with your scholar. In the sixth grade we go through extensive and involved steps to help scholars  master the skills necessary for middle school.                           

    Pointers for having a good year:

Turn in all work on time 
Bring all of the necessary materials to class
Ask questions 
Use time wisely
Take good notes
Communicate with your teachers
Advocate for yourself
