    Homework Policy

               Each third grader will bring his/her homework folder home on Monday.  Parents/Guardians are asked to review the information in the Homework Folder each Monday with their child.Homework expectations will be explained each week.  Students should spend approximately thirty minutes on homework Monday through Thursday.  Students should bring the homework folder and completed work back to school on Friday.

    Student Planner

               Students will complete a page in their Student Planner each day. Your student is responsible to show you their planner every day and when you have reviewed it, please sign it, date it, and guide your child so that it is returned to school each day.   If your child was not able to finish an assignment during class it will be sent home with the planner. Such assignments are due the following day unless a different date is noted.


               Homework Folder: Each week I will include information related to school/class activities in this folder. Feel free to send a note to me when your child returns this folder on Friday.

               Student Planner:  Each day information will be included in your student’s planner. You are invited to write a note in the planner.

    Remind Instructions

    Remind is a safe and free way for teachers to communicate to parents and students.  I will use Remind to text reminders on important information like projects, parties, speeches, field trips, remembering library books, early outs, etc.  You don’t have to be tech savvy to use this simply follow the following directions:

    Text this number: 81010

    Lesson Plans

    All of my lesson plans are available on my webpage at the school website: https://www.florence.k12.mt.us  Simply go to the school website, find Kiffe in Faculty Pages and look at Lessons.  As much as possible, I will try to attach worksheets, instructions, etc. to the plans just in case a student forgets work at school, or loses it.
