How Can Parents Get in Touch with the Dolphin Teachers?

We want your child to be successful! In order for this to happen, it is imperative that the lines of communication between home and school remain open. There are several ways that you can contact your child’s teachers to either set up a conference or just to see how things are going. Feel free to contact us any of the following ways:  
 
A. Phone Call  
Call the school at 733-2740 and leave a message for a specific teacher or the entire team.  
 
B. Student’s Agenda  
—Ask your child to bring home his/her agenda on a daily basis.  
—All teachers are requiring students to write down homework assignments, upcoming tests/projects, etc. in their agendas. Teachers may also write comments concerning grades, incomplete homework (…ink stamps will be used), and behavior in the students’ agendas.  
—Parents are encouraged to write questions, concerns, etc. in their child’s agenda. After reading your note, the teacher will initial it. If this is not done, chances are the teacher never received the note.  
—According to school policy, each student must keep his/her agenda in a one inch binder.  
 
C. Internet  
—The Prince George County Public School site contains information on all county schools; a listing of e-mail addresses for all school employees; and a link to Tyler SIS Grade System so that you can access your child’s grades. (Note: Via e-mail, you should receive a password that is needed to view your child’s grades.) The address is http://pgs.k12.va.us.  
—When you log on to the Prince George County Public School site, you can also access notes created by each teacher. The notes may contain team polices, upcoming team and school-wide events, current topics, objectives, test/quiz dates, upcoming projects, and homework assignments. To access a specific teacher’s notes, click on Staff Weblogs; scroll down to the “M’s”(Moore teachers); continue scrolling through the “Moore teachers” to find the name of the teacher whose notes you wish to view; then click on that teacher’s name.  
—You can e-mail each teacher through the website or by using our addresses:  
Mrs. Boiteau (Science)—lboiteau@pgs.k12.va.us

Student Agenda

AGENDA 
 
Agenda must be in a one inch binder at all times. The only writing in your agenda should be homework, upcoming assignments, and pass pages for movement around the building. You must write in pen! You should not color, tear, fold or remove any pages from this agenda. There is a replacement fee for any lost or damaged agendas. If pass pages are torn out of the agenda the student will not be permitted to leave the classroom when a pass is needed.  
 
PARENT SIGNATURE IN AGENDA 
 
On each Friday’s date in the student agenda there will be a space for parent signature. This signature will be checked during homeroom on Monday. It is expected with the signature that you will be reviewing your child’s academic achievement, responsibility and behavior for that week. If a student has failed to complete and turn in a homework assignment, a stamp will be put into the agenda on the date that it was due. For each week, you will also see “SWIM” stamped in your child’s agenda. Each “SWIMSWIM” letter that has been crossed out represents a repsonsibility issue (ex. left necessary supplies in locker, no interactive NB, did not return paper needing a parent signature, etc.) It is also expected that you will look at the “Dolphin Behavior/Discipline Record” (inside front cover of agenda) to review behavior actions for that week. The agenda is our way of communicating with you on a daily basis. Please review it as often as possible. 

Dolphin Reminders

1) Sign up for “Remind” to receive text messages from your child’s teachers regarding homework assignments, upcoming tests/quizzes, etc. Please ask your child for the informational paper given to him/her by each academic teacher. 
 
2) From 9/21/15 – 10/2/15, bring in your “pennies” (or spare change)to donate to the Beta Club “Penny Lane” fundraiser. All monies collected go to the PG Animal Shelter.
