Conferences: Conferences are held on an as needed and ongoing basis. Parents may contact the teacher via e-mail, note, or phone call at any time during the school year to schedule a conference.
Homework Folders: The homework folder is red and should go home with students each day. Students should assume responsibility for the folder and its contents. Work should be only be cleaned out under teacher direction at school.
Homework: Students will have recieve their homework assignments on Wednesday and they will be due the following Tuesday. Some assignments will need access to a computer to complete. If the student does not have access to a home computer or tablet they need to utilize Computer Enrichment time, Active start time in the computer lab on Thursdays, or speak with me about using our classroom Chrome books.
Late Work: I do accept late assisnmnents, however 10 points will be taken for each day it is not turned in and 10 Texas Tickets will be taken for each late assignment. After 10 days of a missing assignment the student will receive a zero.
Missing Work: A zero will be recorded for work that is not turned in.
Correct and Return: Daily work with a grade below 70 can and should be corrected and returned for a grade adjustment. The highest grade that can be made on a corrected paper is 70.

No Name Papers: Five tickets will be payed to Mrs. Hudson for each paper with no name.
Tuesday Folders: This folder is yellow and will come home each Tuesday with work from the previous week and school bulletins. The folder should be returned to school on Wednesday with a parent signature. Work and bulletins should be kept at home for parent reference throughout the year.
Absences/Make-Up Work: A note explaining the absence should be given to the home base teacher when a student returns to school. After three consecutive absences, work may be requested by calling the school. Students have two days for every day absent to complete and turn in make-up work.
Texas Tickets: Students will earn Texas Tickets for hard work, excellent effort, kindness to others, etc.... Texas Tickets are redeemable for coupons and privileges.
