Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience- this includes remotely-scheduled (online) classes


Completes all homework assignments/projects given by his/her teachers and accesses his/her/their School Email and other necessary platforms Daily (Computer access is needed; please let us know if your access to a computer/laptop changes)


Reads daily to improve literacy skills and to develop/support a love for reading
Shares (school) experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school-life
