    Assignment Planners
     
    Students are given their own planner for the school year.  As a member of the 6th grade class, they are now responsible for using the planner on a daily basis.  At the end of each day, and often throughout the day, we will fill in the planner with assignments and due dates. If a student is absent, they will need to consult the master planner or check in with a teacher to find out what you have missed.
     
    Student Reponsibility:
    • Write neatly and legible on the lines
    • Fill in daily assignments and long range due dates
    • Call a friend if absent (for assignments you have missed)
    • Complete homework by due dates
