*Every morning students will turn in their homework assignments. Assignments should be Priority to help strengthen academic skills
Completed with QUALITY & EFFORT
“Pink slips” will be given when assignments don’t meet expectations. Unacceptable/incomplete assignments will be made up during 1st recess and/or at home. Students will have the weekend until MONDAY to turn in all missing work.
Students with 3 or more consistent missing/incomplete/incorrect homework assignments will receive a notice (PINK SLIP) sent home which will be stapled into their planner. “Pink slips” must be signed and returned. Student will also need to write a composition to explain why assignments are not being completed and what will be done next time.
Students are expected to have homework completed and turned in on time everyday. Failure to turn in homework will result in getting a pink slip. Three pink slips for failure to turn in homework will result in a 3 paragraph writing composition (reflection), staying in for recess to complete, and a call home or conference 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
Reading Log (30 minutes)
Math (Stepping Stones) (20 minutes)
ELA (Wonders) (20 minutes)
Social Studies/Science (20 minutes)
Note: Time spent on homework will fluctuate due to child’s individual differences
