A message will be sent to parents through Seesaw when assignments don’t meet expectations. Unacceptable/incomplete/or Missing assignments will be made up during 1st recess and/or at home. Students will have the weekend to complete and turn in all missing work on MONDAY
Students with 3 or more consistent missing/incomplete/incorrect homework assignments will receive a call home. Student will also need to write a composition to explain why assignments are not being completed and what will be done next time to ensure future assignments are being completed in a timely manner.
If your child continues to have missing, incomplete, or unacceptable work being turned in, I may schedule a virtual conference with you to see what we can do to help your child be successful.
AVID Student Binder & Planner
The AVID Binder is used to organize your child's homework, planner, and assignments in the various core subjects. Your child will bring the binder home and return to school daily. Please encourage your child to keep their binders neat and organized every quarter. They are taught how to arrange their binders in class.
The planner should be where students refer to for homework and where parents sign daily to acknowledge completed assignments. The daily homework assignments will be posted online, but are subject to change. Homework should take approximately 90 minutes every evening to complete (unless there is unfinished work from class which may take longer). Parents are encouraged to discuss homework assignments with their child as this will foster a deeper understanding of the material.
Example of Daily Homework *Subject to change
Independent Reading (30 minutes)
Math (Ready Math) (20 minutes)
ELA (Vocab/Grammar/Spelling/Rdg) (20 minutes)
Social Studies/Science (20 minutes)
Note: Time spent on homework will fluctuate due to child’s individual differences
