By this time, you’ve been in school for at least a couple of weeks. I would like you to develop some good habits, which will help you to get good grades.
- Check your grades on the student portal once per week. I recommend you do this on Monday afternoons, as teachers are to have their grades updated and posted each Monday morning. Use this link: campus.dpsk12.org
- Make it a habit to enter the classroom, take your seat, and open up your planner to the current day. Most teachers will either mention homework or upcoming quizzes, or they will have it posted in the room. Find it and write it down. Or just have your planner ready–it will save you time for when your teacher says, “write this down.”
- Every day, check your bag for loose papers, and put them in the correct spot in your binder or folders. You should have folders or sections marked for each class. Every day, file these papers in the correct folders.
That’s it for this week. Check in with me, in person, and tell me how this is going for you.
