What Happens to my Child's Math Homework?
You may be wondering what happens to your child's math homework. When your child arrives at school each morning, he or she has several jobs to do. These jobs include putting their math homework in a bin, putting away their green homework folder, filling up their water bottle and making a lunch choice. During morning meeting, Ms. Dee checks the homework. Then later in the morning during centers, she pulls kids who have made mistakes or are not understanding a concept and works with them to help them make corrections. She also has them correct any backwards numbers. After that she leaves the papers with notes on them for me to see and recycles the rest. Since you have already looked at the homework the night before there is no need to send it back home again - we are just trying to cut down on the paperwork that piles up everywhere. Ask your child if he or she has ever worked with Ms. Dee on homework corrections.

Calendar Note
Remember to refer to the Renaissance calendar rather than the district modified calender. We do have school this Friday, October 7th and do not have school on Monday, October 24th. This will be a teacher work day. This is opposite of the district modified calender so always check to make sure you are checking the correct calendar.

Also note that belay training and refresher courses are coming up on October 5th. See the calendar link above for more details.
