The best way to stay up-to-date on your son/daughter's progress is through the grade book portal. The website address is https://pousd.illuminatehc.com. Your child's 4 digit ID number is the username and then whatever password you/your child has set up. Please monitor your child's grades weekly if not daily.
Please get used to checking the class homework calendar regularly. It includes the daily classwork/homework. This is the info that the students should have written in their planner each day. I also list important events/happenings at POCS throughout the month. Scroll down for the appropriate homework calendar. There is a class calendar for block 1 and block 2. Both blocks will usually be doing the same curriculum and all assignments for both classes can be found on the Block 1 calendar. When there is a specific change in an assignment/due date/project/etc. for the block 2 class, the block 2 calendar will be updated accordingly.
Students should have homework each night - Monday thru Thursday. Homework is not usually given over the weekend. Students can use this time to complete missing work and/or math assignment corrections. Please make an effort to check your student's planner at the end of each week (Friday). I will sometimes record important notes/messages regarding progress/missing assignments that your son/daughter needs to complete over the weekend. It's also a great way to stay connected with what your child is doing in school and to make sure he/she is using the planner effectively.
The best way to reach me is by e-mail. firstname.lastname@example.org I check e-mail several times per day. I will always try to get back to you that day.
