H OMEWORK : Your children will have math and reading homework each night. The students need to practice their math facts daily, as well as work on their reading fluency, which will include reading 30 minutes each night. Grades – Students will receive a 5 point grade for completing their home steps in reading each week. I will keep track of missing assignments and contact you if missing homework becomes an issue. Assignments will be written in the assignment book daily. Please sign this book daily! Additional homework may be assigned as necessary.

G RADES : The students will be receiving letter grades in the subject areas of math and reading. O, S, N, and U will be used in all other subject areas. Please monitor your child’s progress on PowerSchool.
D ISCIPLINE : Discipline is monitored on an individual basis. Each day your child will be placed on green, signaling that they are Ready to Learn. As the day progresses, the child can move up for good behavior or receive a warning for poor behavior. If they end the day on red, they will be given a note to take home informing you of the situation. This note needs to be signed by a parent. Other possible consequences may include completing a “think sheet”, loss of recess, and / or an office referral. This procedure is used to determine conduct grades. If they end the day on Outstanding or purple, they will receive a positive note home. Any child who ends the day on green or above will receive a ticket for class drawings.
