*Each day your child will bring home his or her Take Home Binder. Inside it you will find the Daily Planner where your child will have his or her homework written down for the day. Your child's daily conduct will be recorded in the planner on the current date. Please sign your child's planner in the designated area every night!  Once a week, usually Tuesday or Wednesday, your child's graded  tests will come home in his or her Conduct/Test  pocket folder. It is the parent's responsibility to look over the tests, weekly conduct grade, weekly AR points earned, and then sign in the designated spot on the Conduct sheet. Student's Conduct/Test pocket folders are to be returned the following day, and student's will receive a conduct mark if they are not signed and returned. ALL assessments with a grade of  D or F, MUST be returned to school!  A lot of these papers do not carry a letter grade but are done in class for skill practice and should be gone over as a review for tests.
