Dear Renaissance Families,
Homework assignments will be pending student classwork completion. As an incentive students will generally only receive homework if classwork is incomplete. Students who are not productive in class will have the night to complete any unfinished assignments and return them to school the following day for credit. Bi-weekly, a small packet of corrected work will be returned for families to review. Students must fix all incorrect problems and return work with parent signature for an exam grade. For families, who wish to have daily homework assignments, please utilize my classroom website for games, as well as online resources Khan Academy Mission and DreamBox for your child to receive extra credit.
Grades will be updated on an online database called PupilPath. Administration will provide families with log ins. Please check PupilPath weekly to see your child’s progress. Any missing assignments may be made up for partial credit. Furthermore, fifth grade teachers will use Class Dojo as a behavior/ participation incentive. It’s an app that parents can log on to. You will receive a code to join the classroom and will only have access to your child. Class Dojo points will effect your student’s weekly participation grade and will be averaged into math grades. Class Dojo is equipped with personal messaging (text). Feel free to use this platform to contact us.
Some important dates for you to note:
October 9th- Columbus Day- No School
Thank you for your continued support!
