How will I know if my child is completing assignments?

  1. Check their writer’s notebook. Ask them to show you what they did that day/week. 
  2. Check PowerSchool.  I try to upload grades on a weekly basis (unless it is an extensive project which will take more time to grade)
  3. Please email me if you have questions or concerns about your child's progress
