Supply List

All 6th grade students need the following supplies:

Please remember that some school supplies need to be restocked periodically throughout the school year. These supplies are important for our students to be prepared to learn.

Thank you. We appreciate your assistance and support.

Homework Policy

We believe that there is a direct connection between student achievement and homework completion. We assign homework because it is useful in the reinforcement of concepts and skills being taught in the class as well as teaching responsibility and helping foster the development of positive study and work habits. Homework may also be used to help provide the necessary background for an upcoming topic or lesson to be discussed.

We expect students to do their best job on homework. Homework should be neat. We expect students to do the work on their own and ask for help only after they have given it their best effort, unless it is a cooperative group or family activity. We will check all homework. We strongly believe in the value positive support plays in motivating children to develop good study habits.

We will assign homework Monday through Thursday nights. Students should spend 60-90 minutes on school related activities. There may be days when there is no homework or the assignment is minimal. On such days, students should be reading, writing, studying, practicing math facts, or working on long-range projects. Daily homework that has not been completed by its due date cannot accomplish these objectives. Late homework will not be accepted and a zero grade will be recorded for that assignment. Long term graded assignments will lose 10 points each day it is late. No assignment will be accepted five days after its due date.

This year your child will be using an agenda. It is a daily record of work for which your child is responsible. Please check this agenda on a daily basis. The agenda will help you to know when homework or long-term projects are due. It should also indicate the dates of tests. Your child should write NH (no homework)in the blocks where there is no specific assignment given on that day.

When absent from class, student will obtain all missed work either from a class member upon return to school or by a parent requesting work by calling the Middle School office on the day of the absence. Work should be returned the next day.

Student Snack Policy

In an effort to help our students remain energized during the school day, Scituate Middle School maintains a school wide snack policy. Our goal is to help the students remain focused on their studies and work to their fullest potential.
