Parents: Homework is posted for the week on Sunday evening or Monday mornings. Note: There may be times during the school year when the homework assignments may change for a given day. For example, the students may need more practice in a particular skill before we can move on as originally planned. In those instances, it is the student's responsibility to write down all homework and make noted changes in their planners as directed by their teachers.

**The week of 9/18: There are no weekly spelling words this week.
***Language Arts IXL Assignments Week of 9/18: H.2, R.1, Y.5, JJ.4
*** Math IXL Assignments week of 9/18: D.15, 5N8, M5R, D.7
Students are given class time to complete the assignment. The students can also work on them for homework. In order for a 100 to be entered into the gradebook, the students must achieve at least a 90% on their IXL assignment.
**Students who do not complete or hand in their IXL assignments on the specific due date will be given a 0 in Renweb. If the students make up the assignments, they will receive partial credit and 50% will be entered into Renweb for the assignment. If a student is absent, they will have the number of days they were out to show us the completed assignment. For example, if a student is out for 2 days, they will have 2 days to show us the completed IXL assignments.
Students have the number of school days that they were absent to complete all make-up work due to absence. For example, if a child is absent for 3 days, then they will have 3 school days to make-up any missed assigments and turn them in. If a student is going to be absent for an extended number of school days, it is the students responsibility to meet with the teacher to organize a list of missed assignments and arrange an appropriate date to have all assignments completed and turned in. If the student does not complete an assignment in the required number of days when they return to school, a zero will be entered into Renweb. However, the students will still have the opportunity to compete the missed assignment for partial credit (50%).
