Welcome students and parents to Mr. McKernon’s blog site covering:

  • homework
  • test / quiz dates
  • general blog updates

How often is the blog updated?  I will update the blog daily, especially during the sick season as I know kids, and especially parents, enjoy quick access to their assignments when they are out sick.

What info will be on the blog post of the day?  I will post all 6th grade math assignments on each post.  They should be incredibly easy to understand.  PLEASE BE ADVISED…the homework is POSTED IN THE CLASSROOM everyday and SHOULD BE the 1st place you look.  Students–DO NOT use this blog as a lazy way of getting the homework assignment because you do not want to copy it into your planner.  Please get into the habit of using your planner.

What happens if the homework posted here is not the same as the homework posted in the class?  All info given in class will always supersede the blog in the case of human error on my part.  If that occurs and a student has done the homework posted here I will still give you credit.

I was out sick and the homework is a worksheet?  If the homework is a worksheet it will be listed as a blue hyperlink.  Click on it to download the scanned PDF.  If your device can not read Word docs or PDF files you will have trouble viewing and printing them.

How do I determine when a test or quiz is coming?  When a test or quiz is coming up I will post it at least (2-3 days quiz) and (3-5 days test) in advance in BOTH the classroom and the blog.

**The calendar to the right of the home page is not a future reference calendar.  For example, you cannot jump 2 weeks ahead and expect to find the homework for that future day.   Once in a while kids might be out of town for a week or two  at a time (or very ill) and I will make a separate assignment for you according to your situation.

Can I just email you to get information?  I only communicate with parents / guardians via email.   I am very good about replying the same day as I receive it (minus Saturdays).  Students can ask questions at school or have there parents email me.  I WILL NOT REPLY TO STUDENT emails.

Lastly, PARENTS–please feel free to visit or set a time if you would like to speak in person.  Sometimes it is much nicer to chat live than exchange emails 🙂

Blessings!  Enjoy 2019-2020
