    To the parents I have already talked to, this note may be redundant, but for those with whom I have not had contact, I hope it will be informative and helpful. I have listed below general class procedures and expectations.  Each subject is also listed separately with any special instructions.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about your child or their assignments.  My email is linked above.

    B]  A parent should review the Daily Agenda and sign at the bottom.

    C]  I will fill in & initial all subject blocks which are attempted in my classroom.

    D]  If I have placed a circle with a line through it and my initials in the subject square that indicates you child completed the work in class and has no homework

    E]  If I have written an assignment in the subject square, initialed and checked the HM in the lower corner your child has homework in that subject.
