If you have not signed up for AppleTree, please do so ASAP.
One of my goals is for my students to learn how to work efficiently, manage their time effectively, and complete their work on time. This year, I am trying something new to communicate with parents about their child's work habits.
Depending on your child, you may want to check our Daily Assignments on our website to ask your child how they are progressing on the assigned tasks. Although I do not assign "homework", class work that is not completed during the day may need to be completed at home in order for your child to be prepared to engage in learning activities the following day.
One way I will be using AppleTree is to communicate with parents when students do not complete their work on time. We will be checking assignments first thing in the morning each day starting this week. If your student asks for additional time to complete assignments, parents will be notified via AppleTree.
If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child's progress, please feel free to contact me. This is a new system for me, but I think it will be much easier than sending home a form for parents to sign or sending an email each day. Reporting your 6th grader's work habits this way should help to hold students accountable for completing their work while keeping parents informed.
Thank you for your support!
