A note to the Parents/Guardians,
I want all my students to be successful, and I need your help.† Your student will do better in school if you show that you are interested in what your student is learning.† Please encourage your student to complete all school work and homework.† By the 3rd week of school, check that your student has an Earth Science textbook at home for homework.† Show your interest each week by:
1. Asking to the see the science notes.† Have your student use the notes to explain what they are learning in class.† We usually take class notes at least once a week, and we always date the notes.†
2. Ask to see the studentís completed homework Thursday night.† Homework for this class is due on Fridays, and each student gets a paper on Monday with a full description of the homework assignment.† I do not allow students to turn in the homework early, so your student should always be able to show you the weekly homework Thursday night.
