I have a sign-in sheet next to a box of folders for each subject. The kids initial the completed assignment on the sign-in sheet and put their assignment in the appropriate folder. I highlight any assignments that aren't signed off to let them know and to help them take care of it. On Fridays, I send home a fluorescent envelope with letters to the parents of students missing assignments. Parents sign the letters and return the envelopes. I call them if the envelopes don't come back to me. This system really helps students show responsibility and keeps parents knowledgeable of missed work.
