Extra Reminders

  • Please Check Bookbacks

    Students often accumulate materials in their bookbags that can be left at home. This can cause a big strain on the back and finding things can be a problem. You can help your child by asking them to take everything out of their bookbag on the weekend and replacing only what is required. With the exception of special projects, please use the following list to help your child stay organized: Math binder, Accordion folder, pencil case, One chapter book, and the Student Planner.

    PRIDE Cards:
    Green PRIDE cards are bound in the student planners that are send home each day. They are meant to keep you informed of any behavior issues that your child may be having at school. Please ask to see your child's planner and check to see how they are doing. Each month brings a clean card and a fresh chance to improve. The PRIDE cards should be signed by you at the end of each month.

    Graded Work

    Please be sure to empty your child's Take Home section in their Accordion Folder.  All other papers should stay in the other sections.


    If you haven't already done so, please sign up for.  We use this text messaging system to send out a quick text each day with assignments and reminders.  Really a backup system to the assignment planners that the students will be getting on the first day.  To sign up for Remind, Simply send a text to this number:   81010  and put this in the message:   @4titans20

    Assignment Planners

    Please check that your child is keeping good notes in their planner.  They should have down the homework assignments.  If you have a message please email, please do not write notes in the planner.
