Attendance Please keep absences, tardies, and early dismissals to a minimum. We do a lot of hands-on activities that are difficult or impossible to replicate at home. Always send a note after an absence. Students have one day for each absence to make up assignments. Call the office before 10:00 am if you wish to pick up make up work for that day.
Agendas Agendas will help keep students organized and keep parents informed. Behavior and homework will be written in the agenda. Check your child’s agenda each evening and initial at the bottom on the page. Agendas are checked daily in the classroom.
Homework Homework should take no longer than 45 minutes. If it consistently takes longer, please let me know. Students should read 20 minutes every night. This should be included in the 45 minutes of homework. If spelling homework is not specified, students may study their words in any way that helps them. Other homework may be given, but we will try to give more than one day to complete the assignment.
Specials We attend specials every day from 12:10 – 12:55 pm. Tuesdays and Thursdays we will go to music class and library/computers. The other days we will go to P.E.
