Re: Basically it's Friday!

I went through the same phase about a year older than Bella, Jess. Stopped turning in assignments, etc. And the teacher was not especially supportive to my mother's concerns, said that I was old enough to be responsible for my own homework and so forth, she wasn't going to send home a syllabus or anything for Mom to be able to follow up on. Then ironically the next year at middle school, they instituted a school-wide program where we had to use planners to write in our assignments and our parents had to sign them every week.

I can tell you Rosie struggles with keeping up with her papers and assignments, and she's Bella's age. She has lost her spelling word list twice already this year. But her class got a planner donated to them, and while it's not required she was really excited about it and has been writing most of her stuff in there so it has been easier for me to figure out if she's missing stuff. Maybe if you got Bella a cool planner or notebook to write stuff in, it would help?
