Parent Page - Just for You

  • Welcome Parents!

    I provide a variety of information on my webpage. I hope you find it useful.

    Contacting Me:
    The easiest way to contact me is via e-mail (clarkr@brightonk12.com). This is mainly due to the fact that I do not like to talk on the phone with parents when there are students in my classroom. The times when parents tend to call also happen to be the times when many students like to come in for help or to make things up.

    If you prefer to call, you can reach my voicemail anytime by calling extension 66017. I check my voicemail daily.


    Student Grades:
    Due to Parent Connect, you have access to grades around the clock. With the exception of students that may have late or make-up work, the grades on Parent Connect should be up to date within a couple of days. 

    Since a missing grade counts as a zero, students that have been absent will appear to have lower grades until I grade their make-up work.

    Even the best of us make mistakes. I do spot check my grades to make sure I have input the scores correctly. However, students and parents tend to notice some mistakes before I do. If at any time you think there may be a mistake, or if you have questions about a score, feel free to send me an e-mail.


    Homework Assignments:
    Students will typically have homework daily. I post the assignments on Parent/Student Connect.  Please check there for assignments when absent.  When necessary, I may post a link to a video or other resource on the class page, so it is a good idea to check.


    E-mail updates:
    I am trying to established a practice of e-mailing parents with regards to upcoming tests and quizzes as well as significant dates (conferences, etc.). Please watch for those.
