Other nightly homework will be recorded each day in their daily planners.  Please check their planner each night and assist students in completing homework.

Students should also review notes and study material as needed.



Behavior Expectations:
Here at Huddleston we follow "Hawk's Pride"

H - Have self-control
              A - Always be a good listener
  W - Worthy of learning
                       K - Kindness in Words and Actions
  S - Speak with respect



CLASS DOJO

This year we will be using the software “Classroom Dojo” as our communication system for following your child’s character & HAWK’s Pride displayed while in the classroom.

Students will earn points and are promoted to higher belt levels based on these points.  Rewards are received when reaching the next belt level.  Ways for students to earn points include: having a clean desk, turning in homework, getting their planner signed each night, brining back a signed Tuesday folder, etc.

Students may also lose points when HAWK’s Pride is not being followed and poor choices are being made.  Ways for students to lose points include: not returning homework, out of seat, lack of effort, disrespect, inappropriate language, etc.

Parents are encouraged to join the program by downloading the app or logging in on the computer.  When doing so, you are able to get a glimpse of your child’s performance throughout the day.

We will NOT be using the messenger portion of this program.
