  • Homework Agenda:

    • Use the agenda for writing when they have and do not have homework in each class daily

    • Assignments are posted in each class, and students are given time to write their assignments in each class.

    • A great tool to use at home to check off your child’s assignments when completed

  • Team Website:

    • Check the team website daily to double-check homework and announcements from the team and classroom teachers

  • Cole Time:

    • 25 minutes 4 days a week for silent reading time, organizational time, and extra time with Avalanche teachers.

The 6th Grade Transition…(continued)


  • Locker Times—Students have been assigned locker times. Top lockers go to lockers before the even numbered periods + bottom lockers before the odd numbered periods.

    • When off team, students are allowed to go to their locker during an unscheduled time.

  • Gotta Go Passes—Fosters preparedness and efficient time management. (see next slide)

  • Yellow Cards + Red Cards

    • Yellow cards result in a 5 minute lunch detention and are issued if a student doesn’t correct a behavior after a warning. This results in a behavior reflection with a parent signature due the next day.

    • Red cards are issued if a student doesn’t correct the same behavior after receiving a yellow card or if they have a major behavior infraction. This results in a full after school or lunch detention, and a parent signature.
