Accelerated Reader Each nine week your child will be required to earn a specific number of Accelerated Reader Points. The goal will be based on their individualized reading level and reading a minimum of 20 minutes every evening . They may choose books from their individualized reading level. The points will count as two grades which will be added at the end of the nine weeks. They will earn one grade for the points and one grade for their comprehension of the books they read. Reading their books and taking their test will also give them an opportunity to increase their reading skills because they will be practicing on a weekly basis.
One of the responsibilities the sixth graders have is a Wednesday folder. Each week your child will be bringing home this folder. Inside of it there will be graded assignments your child has completed, progress reports every other week and informative notes from the school. Your child will be required to bring the Wednesday folder back signed. The folder needs to be back on Thursday, but if it is not back by Friday, your child will receive a detention check.
Progress Reports will be coming home every other week. These have to be signed and returned to the teacher by Friday or the student will earn a check. Any assignments that have an "M" instead of a grade can also be turned in by Friday of that same week for partial credit. If the missing assignments are not turned in by Friday: the student will have a zero.
