What is the purpose of the assignment book?
The assignment notebook is an important organizational tool. Your child will be expected to record the assignments for each subject. Students are encouraged to copy items that I record on the whiteboard in our classroom. I do send reminds out about homework and tests.
Learning how to record assignments and write notes to yourself is critical to your child's success in middle school and high school.
I do not require parents to sign or initial the assignment notebook, as I feel that the notebook should become the child's responsibility. However, if your child does not demonstrate responsibility with his/her daily work, we can arrange to sign the assignment book to encourage responsibility.
