JH Study Table/HCC

 

 

 

Dear parents/guardians:

 

                Class work and homework are vital components in the learning environment and serve as important building blocks towards student success.   We at Tri-Point strive to not only have students truly reach their academic potential but also develop an appreciation of the importance that hard work and dedication have in achievement.  Missing work and/or “0’s” are no longer accepted nor will they be used as punishment.  Classwork and homework are important not only to student learning but they also serve as valuable assets as teachers evaluate student understanding and differentiate instruction when necessary.

As many of you know, we have built in to our schedule what we refer to as Homework Completion Center, or HCC.   Students who are missing work, have incomplete work, and/or are behind in catching up from absences, will be assigned to a Work Completion Center during their respective lunch and recess period until all missing assignments are complete.  Lunch will be served in the designated room as well.  Please note that parents will be notified either through ClassDojo, 4th/5th only, or email as to when their students have been assigned study table.

                Homework completion has always been a part of our Positive Behavior Program, or PBIS, and will continue to be a deciding factor in deciding who attends our quarterly celebrations.  Effective immediately however, students who have been assigned to HCC for the 3rd time, as well as any continuing times, in a quarter will be required to attend the next available Study Table, our after school study program, which is held Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:15-5 PM.  A shuttle bus will be provided to transport students back to Cullom, Kempton, Cabery, and Stelle. Failure to attend Study Table will carry additional consequences including, but not limited to, social restriction (no sports, attending home games, clubs, dances, etc.) until missing work has been completed and the assigned study table has been attended.    Continued refusal will be treated as direct disobedience with additional consequences.  Upon receipt of 5th HCC, a mandatory parent/teacher conference, with the student in attendance, will be requested. 

                As stated above, our goal is to strive for our students to achieve at their very highest level and we feel that instilling the importance of hard work is foundational to that goal.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.  Thank you for your support.
