Calendar All children will have a calendar in their notebooks to keep you informed of their behavior in school. Always aiming for green but everyone slips up now and again. The calendar is used to determine patterns of behavior
Dismissal Your child will only be allowed to change dismissal plans with a note from you in the communication notebook. If an emergency arises through the day, please phone the office. If your child thinks that they are going home a different way than usual and we do not have a note, your child will follow their normal dismissal procedure. If we are not sure that there will be someone to get your child off the bus they will be sent to CARES.

Grades Students will bring home assessments throughout the year to be signed and returned Please take the time to look them over and review any skills or areas of weakness with your child Most of our assessments will be given orally
Homework Homework sheets will be sent home each Monday and should remain in your childs folder until Friday Please allow them to express their own ideas and go at their own pace. If your child struggles to complete their homework in 15 minutes then please let me know.
Please help encourage your child to be responsible for his/her own journey. The more independent your child feels, the more ownership they will have of their successes throughout the year. Independence
