Dear Parents and students,
Welcome to Mr.Panagiotou's 6/7 class.
We have finished re-organizing the school and we'll endeavor to quickly get your
sons and daughters into learning routines which will allow them to flourish.
Thus far your children have not received a great deal of homework. I'd like to remind
everyone that the expectation at this time is 4.5 hours / week minimum. I'm not a huge fan
of weekend homework and I'll try to keep the homework routine as Monday to Thursday with the
exception of major assignments and tests.
Parents: You should have received a number of handouts from your kids recently such as:
1) a calendar of the year's events and PD days, (2) picture day notice, (3) a personal inform / freedom
of information forms and (4) a student bio form.
Thanks so much for filling in the bio forms. It gave me a great deal of information which will hopefully help me instruct your son or daughter to the best of their abilities.
As far as regular homework, your kids will receive weekly spelling lists and assignments followed by a Friday dictation. Math will generally be every night unless they are a very fast worker.
Once next week begins there is no such thing as "NO HOMEWORK" from Monday to Thursday.
Your kids should get into a homework routine which could include nightly reading, practicing times tables, or reviewing notes for rotary subjects such as geography, history, or science.
Once next week begins, I will post upcoming homework at least twice a week. Your children should be using their day planners to organize themselves but this blog will be a good back up tool, especially for parents.
If you have any concerns, e-mail is likely the best way to stay in regular contact with me. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your support,
math P.2 & 3 of text-Thursday (Grade 6 A-D: Grade 7 A-G),
Information forms returned to the office ASAP
Book Orders due next Wednesday
