Conference Time: Gloger -
Please check your child’s student organizer every day. Learning to use an
organizer is a valuable lifelong tool. We will be providing time throughout
the day for students to write down the day’s activities and their homework
assignments. If the students do not have any homework, they have been
instructed to write N.H. In addition, a space has been provided at the bottom
of each day for parent/teacher comments. Ultimately, it is the student’s
responsibility to tell the teacher or parent if there is information to be
seen in this section.
Assignments not turned in on the due date are considered late. The
assignment will have ten points deducted from the overall score each day it is
late. (10 pts. - 1 day late, 20 pts. - 2 days late) If an assignment is not
turned in within the next five days, the student will receive a zero for that
assignment. Because all assignments are made for practice purposes, those
students with zeroes must still complete the work during recess or extension
and will receive no credit. Failure to bring enrichment assignments not taken
for a grade will result in a conduct mark.
Refer to the Student Code of Conduct for any issues regarding discipline.
Please note that a new policy has been added in regards to cell phones.
Students are prohibited from displaying or using cellular phones during
regular school hours. With the first offense, the phone will be confiscated
and returned to the parent for a $15 fee.
Graded papers will be sent home every Friday. A conduct sheet will be
included with the home papers to inform you of your child’s work habits,
behavior, and any supplies your child has used up and/or will need. Periodic
supply checks will be conducted for a conduct grade. When your child brings
this folder home, please remove all the papers, except conduct sheet and
tickets, from the folder and keep them at home.
If you have any questions, you may write a note on the conduct sheet. If
there are any papers in question, attach a note to the work and return with
the Friday folder. Your child is to return the folder signed on the following
Monday.Your child will receive a conduct mark if the folder is not returned to
class on Monday.
Tutorials will be offered for those with failing or near failing grades, and
are by teacher invitation only. Our students who need the tutorials will not
benefit from them if there are too many children in attendance. Your child
must ask for a pass the previous day for morning tutorials, or they will not
be allowed out of the cafeteria.
