Our Weekly Schedule
Attached please find our classroom schedule for the year!
Don’t forget to post this where you can see it!
One of the folders your child will be using is a TAKE HOME FOLDER. This folder should go back and forth to school each day. Please check it on a daily basis for completed work, homework, newsletters, and notes. Please have your child correct any errors on their paperwork and have her/him return it to school the next day.
Also, please send in any lunch money, bus changes, important notes about appointments or dismissal changes in this folder. I check these folders first thing every morning. Thanks!
If your child is absent from school, he or she should return to school with a written note for our school nurse, Mrs. Carey. If your child is late for school, please sign him/her in at the main office.
You may be hearing a lot about green “Good Behavior” cards from your child. It’s part of a system that helps students take responsibility for their own behavior in the classroom.
Here’s how it works: As a class we discuss a list of rules for behavior. Then we set up a chart to track each student’s success. Everyone begins each day with green “Good Behavior” cards in their pockets on the chart. Students who forget to follow the rules must replace their green cards with yellow, orange, or red cards.
*A green card means “You’re doing great!”
*A yellow card means “Warning! Pay more attention to your behavior!”
*An orange card means “You have a consequence.”(Loss of privilege or 10 mins.of recess)
*A red card means action will be taken. (Phone call or note home)
Take a few moments to ask your child about their day. Be sure to praise all the green days-these mean your child followed the rules all day long! Your praise will encourage your child to work toward even more green days in the future! Thanks for your support!Newsletters
