IMPORTANT MIDDLE SCHOOL POLICIES
Click on the link below for Middle School Expectations
Please check your child's planner each day to see what homework is assigned for that day. In the middle school, homework is assigned daily and not weekly. Lessons sometimes take longer than the planned time so homework is assigned as lessons are completed.

WEBSITES FOR MATH/ALGEBRA PRACTICE
SEPTEMBER 19, 2018 BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT!! 6-8 PM
MATH MAINTENANCE is very important in middle school math. Every week we will complete a maintenance sheet - students must make sure they are making corrections and asking questions when I ask, "Any questions?" At the end of the week, there will be a 5 question quiz on the maintenance sheet. I will choose 5 problems from the sheet and put them on the quiz. PLEASE encourage your child(ren) to study these sheets because maintaining math skills is essential in order for the students to do higher level math problems. We do go over EVERY problem!
**REMEMBER MATH MAINTENANCE QUIZZES USUALLY WILL BE EVERY WEEK
