6P HOMEROOM REMINDERS

All students and parents need to read the Parent-Student Handbook 2018-2019 and make a copy of the last page, sign it and return the signed page to homeroom. The handbook can be accessed via the “Parents” tab on the sjrs.org/notes page under “Forms and Documents.” The handbook is online this year and hard copies will not be given out. All students and parents/guardians must read this. The final page of the handbook is to be printed out   –  signed by both parent and student and returned to the student’s homeroom teacher.
Also please be aware throughout each marking period of how your child is progressing on RenWeb/Educate in regards to all subject grades and quality point grades for each subject.
Please check the “Forms and Docs” section under the “Parents” tab on the website for
important news.
Homeroom class donations of tissues, paper towels, and wipes are needed along with the $30.00 Activity Fee.  The Art program receives $10 of this fee. The rest is used throughout the year for classroom needs and programs to supplement the curriculum. Thank you for your cooperation.
All students are expected to have a DEAR Book ( Drop Everything And Read ) during the school year. The use of the DEAR Book will be assigned at the discretion of each of the students’ teachers.

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Saint Joseph Regional School! Welcome back to our 7th and 8th grade students. A special welcome to the upper unit is extended to our 6th grade students.

The Grammar course of study for the 6th grade students is as follows. The students will be studying the sentence and its parts, nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions, interjections, subject-verb agreement, capitalization, punctuation and diagramming of sentences.

The Grammar course of study for the 7th and 8th grade students is the same as the above. The students will also be studying verbals and verbal phrases and sentence structure. The 7th grade students will be assigned a research paper to be completed during the second semester in the spring. The 8th grade students will be assigned a research paper to be completed during the first semester in the fall.
Throughout the school year, the students will have the opportunity to apply their grammar skills to various writing prompts. They will be applying the steps of the Writing Process to enable them to obtain the key to good writing.

Homework is assigned on a daily basis to reinforce the grammar skills that are taught on that particular day. There are three pages assigned. They are as follows: a teaching page, a more practice page, and a daily application page. The daily application page is assigned so that the students when given a prompt will enable them to put into practice what skill they have been taught and apply it to their writing abilities. This enables the students to open up their imaginations and to develop the key to good writing.

At the beginning of each marking period, the students are awarded with a test score of 100. This is referred to as their quality points. The students have the opportunity to keep that extra test score at 100 throughout each marking period. What deters the loss of three points from this test score is incomplete homework assigned from the textbook, incomplete homework assigned from the workbook, not following directions in the textbook or workbook, and not coming to class prepared with the necessary books needed for the day.

The students are clearly made aware of any upcoming quizzes or tests way before the day scheduled. Quizzes and tests are returned to the students, reviewed and placed in their file. All quizzes and test scores are posted on RenWeb/Educate to be viewed by the students and parents. All parents are given the opportunity to review any quiz or test administered to the students by simply stating this in writing or verbal communication.

I look forward to working with your children this school year. I also hope that by the end of the school year, your children will have had the opportunity to obtain THE KEY TO GOOD WRITING.
