MIDDLE SCHOOL 692-5265

KAOL district website:   www.kaolaz.org

Students and Parents/Guardians:

We are looking forward to working with you and your child this school year. We believe that students deserve to be treated with respect and be accepted for their uniqueness. Our goal is to help your child succeed.

Please take the time to read the following classroom expectations and procedures with your child. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us at 692-5265 or email one of us. These expectations and procedures will also be discussed with your child on the first day of school.

COMMUNICATION:

ParentVue:

Through effective communication, parents and teachers can better assist students to be successful in 6th grade.  Teachers regularly e-mail on your child’s progress, so it is important that we have your correct email address.  PLEASE CHECK ParentVue OFTEN, and contact the teachers if you have concerns.

Student Planner

Also, the student planner is another important tool for successful communication.  The students are required to fill in their planners EVERY day at the beginning of EVERY class.  Teachers check planners every MONDAY to verify that the student is completing the planner information and that parent/guardian has signed the current week of lessons/activities. This is a great way to ask your student about upcoming projects and due dates. Students may not alter or write over grades or communication between parents and teachers OR sign or initial for a parent. The result will be a referral to the principal.

ASSIGNMENT POLICY:

ORGANIZATION is the key to a student’s success.  Students need to keep ALL work throughout the grading period (each quarter).

HOMEWORK – Students will have a math problem set for homework EVERY SCHOOL NIGHT. Corrections are an assignment, not an option. Homework from all core classes may be given from time to time. Students are made aware of these assignments in class and will be required to write the information about all assignments in their planner.

STUDY ISLAND – Study Island is an important resource and will be assigned.

LATE WORK – Sixth graders are expected to be organized and responsible. Students MUST turn work in on time.

ABSENCE WORK – Please call the office, 692-5265, to notify the school of your child’s absence.  Also let them know if you plan to pick up work missed that day.  If at any time you know ahead of time that your child will miss school, please inform the teachers.
