Some students have let me know that they are MUCH more comfortable with the Junior High now that they have been around for a few weeks. I'm so glad to hear it!!
A few reminders...
-Be sure to check HAC daily so you are able to keep up with your child's grades. HAC is our communication tool for parents, students, and teachers so we are all on the same page with grades. If you ever have a question about your child's grade, please don't hesitate to contact Ms. Hicks now or me when I return.
-Be sure your child is reading AT LEAST 60 minutes each day. AR goals will continue to increase each quarter. I set goals based largely on what they said their goal was at the end of last year. Goals will not be lower than what they currently are.
-When your child is absent, make sure you contact the attendance office to report the absence.
-Class Dojo: each parent is required to join Dojo so you are aware of your child's day. Remember, 5 negatives in one week results in a one hour after school penalty hall on either Tuesday or Thursday. Ten negatives in a month will result in a Friday penalty hall until 6:00 PM.
-Tonight is the HOMECOMING football game!! Of course it's supposed to rain (homecoming week curse). Encourage your child to attend the football games if they don't already. The Junior High has a seating section for students and Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Green are at each game monitoring our section. You will also see several other teachers around at the games.
I hope you are enjoying the fall weather as much as I am--fall is my FAVORITE season for so many reasons!! Please feel free to contact me if there is anything I might be able to help you with or Ms. Hicks about daily classroom questions. I will be in during homeroom next Friday to hang out with the kids :)
Have a great weekend--GO MULES & GO BUCKS!!
