7th Grade Procedures Memo Paakuma’ K-8
In order to ensure open communication, our team would like to share some frequently asked questions and answers as outlined below.
How do I know if my student has homework?
Students each have been provided with a planner that they are required to use in every class, every day. Students should be recording objectives, homework, or classwork depending on their teacher’s requirements. Any questions about homework can be clarified by contacting the teacher, preferably via email.
How do I know what grade my student is getting?
In addition to the Aeries Parent Portal, grades are periodically posted in class. They are sent home monthly through Math class to be returned, signed by a parent, for extra credit. At any time you are welcome to email us for information about your students grade(s).
Can my student complete make-up work?
If a student is absent, it is their responsibility to get all of their make- up assignments from their teachers upon their return. For help with a specific assignment, students should arrange a time to speak with their teachers before school, after school or during lunch. For make-up packets that involve several assignments, please schedule a parent meeting with us so that we can implement a plan and clarify expectations for completing these assignments.
How far in advance should I ask for work if my student is going to be absent?
Please allow up to 48 hours for teachers to prepare work.
Can my student complete any extra-credit to increase their grade?
Student grades are determined by their performance on carefully crafted tasks that are designed to show proficiency. Students need to complete their assigned work before they are given extra-credit
opportunities. Extra-credit will be offered at teacher’s discretion and usually only as an extension of assigned classwork.
The easiest way to get in touch with us is by email, but you may also call or schedule meetings through the front office. If we are unable to take your call because we are teaching, we will return your call as soon as possible.
