Class Rules/Conduct Policy Class Rules Be safe (walk, stay in your place, keep your body and other objects to yourself). Be respectful (share, talk nicely, help others.) Be responsible (listen, follow directions, stay busy, finish what you start) Rewards and Incentives Consequences
Daily Routines and Classroom Procedures Lunch Money – Please place it in an envelope labeled with child’s first and last name and pin number if known. Absences – Please send a note with your child when they return from an absence. Tardies and early dismissals count against your perfect attendance unless you have a doctor’s note. If your child misses 18 days and they are unexcused child will repeat kindergarten. We will have no summer school next summer due to funding. Tardies – 4 unexcused tardies will result in the general conduct grade being dropped one letter grade. Birthday Procedures - Please inform lunch manager if you want to purchase cupcakes for your child’s birthday. They will pass out after student’s have eaten lunch.
Letter-Sound Expert Notice in folder – You will find a note in your child’s Tuesday folder that will inform you when your child will be the Letter-Sound Expert of the week. Please have them prepared for their special day. (The note provides more details about what they need to do and bring to class.) Finch’s Phonics – This is a great program that helps students remember the sound each letter makes. We teach a motion to go with each letter and its sound. Your child will teach this motion to the class as part of the letter-sound expert assignment.
