3 Nightly Routine/Homework * Every night your child will bring home a folder used to transport informational papers and homework assignments. Also, if you need to send money or notes, please use the zippered pouch in the front. In the paper protectors of this folder you will find the monthly homework sheet, a monthly behavior chart, a nightly reading log and several helpful resources to assist in homework completion. Please send this folder back every day!*Your child will have homework each night Monday-Thursday. It will consist of a reading assignment, letter or word activity and a math activity. Please place completed homework in the back pocket of the folder to be turned in each day.
4 Discipline PolicyWe use a color-coded card system. Students have individual pockets with 6 colored cards. All students begin on green each day. If rules are broken, they will flip through the cards in the following order: green, yellow, orange, and red. There are consequences for behavior and a daily report will be sent home. Students are also afforded the opportunity to earn blue or purple cards for positive behavior. You can track your child’s progress on the monthly behavior chart that you will find in the their folder.
5 Video & Picture Release Form This is provided to obtain written permission to videotape and or photograph your child.
