Procedures Classroom Procedures Students are to receive permission from the classroom teacher to get out of their seats. To get the teacher’s attention students should raise their hand. Students are to use the bathroom and get water only after receiving permission from the teacher. If they have a bathroom emergency or need a drink of water students should use the appropriate hand signal. Water bottles are allowed. Students are to begin their morning procedures at 8:05. They are to have sharpened two pencils, copied posted homework, turned in their homework, read any morning messages, and completed the warm-up by 8:25. Most students have jobs and perform them daily. If students finish work early, they may complete other unfinished assignments, read a book, or choose from a selection of posted activities.
Procedures (Continued) General School Procedures Students arrive between 7:45 and 8:00 am. The day starts at 8:05 am. Students follow their morning procedures when they arrive: Unpack Place their homework in the homework tray Sharpen two pencils Copy posted homework in their agenda books Start their morning work Students follow these procedures at dismissal: Read the board for what they need to take home for the day and make sure they have copied the homework for the night. Next students are dismissed by the teacher to pack up to go home. Students will read silently while awaiting dismissal They are dismissed as their mode of transportation is called over the intercom. Car riders and walkers stack the chairs before they are dismissed.
Homework Homework is given Monday through Friday. Students will receive a 0 for late homework assignments unless a parent gives a valid explanation for the missing assignment in writing (i.e. family emergencies); in addition, assignments received with no name will also receive 0’s. The students are responsible for copying their homework in their agenda books everyday. A spelling pre-test will be given once a week with a spelling test at the end of the week. Students will either complete Silver or Gold list spelling assignments and a weekly test based upon their pretest results.

Math and Language Arts (Spelling and Grammar) Thurs. Math, Language Arts (Study for Spelling, Vocabulary, and/or Grammar Tests), and Science Fri. MSA Preparation Assignment and/or Health, Friday Folders (Parent(s) remove graded work and return signed) Mon.-Fri. Students are required to read 20-30 minutes nightly and turn in reading charts on their due dates. Each reading chart is a grade for work habits and reading. Homework updates, MSA data, tools, and links, class events, tests, projects, poetry, study links, and other useful links can be found on third grade teacher websites. There will be an at-home project about every month including an optional science fair project that is completed at home. The third grade will generate group science fair projects for submission to the science fair in class. Write- A-Book is mandatory for third grade.
Classwork Students are expected to complete all assignments. Some assignments are given for assessment purposes. Some assignments will be sent home, others may be placed in the student's portfolio.
Grading and Absences Students who are considered lawfully absent will have the opportunity to make up missed assignments. Students are required to bring a written note from parents for all absences. The number of days allowed to make-up missed work will be equivalent to the number of days of lawful absences. The timeline begins when the teacher gives the student the assignments within 48 hours of the request. Students who do not complete the missed assignments within the allotted time will receive 50% for each assignment.
