Early Intervention When we notice a student is lacking a skill, early intervention is a must! Small groups, one on one First bell is at 7:50. The earlier your child is here, the more help they can receive (small group, if needed). Also, your child will finish their morning work and be off to a good start, without rushing and being behind.
It is very important that your child come to school every day (unless of course they are sick). Please call the front office if they are going to be absent (or they will call you). Please send a note. It is also important not to be tardy. Early Dismissals
We always greet our students in the morning. We want to start the day off right! Good behavior: Traces Treats and Husky Hugs Behavior management: Clip chart Give Me Five Boys Town Social Skills
*Parent Connection allows you to access your child’s grades, assignments, and attendance via the computer. Please keep in mind that some grades will not be in the grade book right away (compositions, notebook grades, etc.), but we will do our best to post them in a timely manner. *The newsletter will be available through Parent Link. If you would like a hard copy of the newsletter, please let me know. *Iris alerts will send you important messages by way of phone or email. These messages can include school closures, upcoming or rescheduled events, etc.
Student Portfolios *Every student will have a binder. Inside we will keep student goals, benchmarks, compositions, etc.
Please make sure you replenish your child’s school supplies as they need them. Pencils Red Pens Dry Erase Markers Crayons Glue Sticks *Your child must have a planner with them in class daily. * If your child is missing any necessary supplies, this keeps them from doing their best at school. It may be reflected on report card as “not being prepared” for school.
Please take the time to review the KISD Elementary Handbook.
