The First six weeks!
I hope by now you have seen your child's progress report for the first three weeks of school. We are trying to help the students become responsible for their own work/learning, so if work is not turned it will be marked M (for missing) in the grade book. An M is calculated as a zero, and zeroes have a huge impact on the grade, BUT the students have many opportunities to turn in missing work or to make corrections if they are unhappy with the grade they have.
The past two weeks have been extra busy for the students, as they have been taking benchmark exams in Writing, Math and Reading. This also happened to be the end of Unit 1 in Math as well as Science, which meant two more exams.
Ask your student how they did and see if they can think of a way to do better on the next assessment!!
