Yellow Folder Parents - Check it daily at home I check it daily at school Return it to school each day with completed homework, notes, and lunch money Please take out the notices and any completed work and keep at home
Homework Will be in the yellow folder Spelling, math, reading books, phonics Posted on my website Students should try to read aloud to an adult for at least 15 minutes every day Practice math addition and subtraction facts with flashcards each night Help your child hold the pencil properly and make sure he/she is writing the letters correctly.
Homework Make sure that he/she understands the work and help him/her if necessary Review your child’s homework before it is returned to school the next day. If he/she is having difficulty write me a note to let me know Please practice the spelling words for the spelling tests No homework on Fridays and over holidays I return corrected homework only if there are too many mistakes If a student forgets to bring in his or her homework, then it needs to be brought in the next day
Dismissal Please send in a note if your child is being picked up by someone else I dismiss 1 child at a time for safety reasons. I need to make sure each child goes home with his or her ride
Classroom supplies Classwork folder Spiral notebook Tissues Zippered pencil case (if their current one gets ruined) Dry erase markers erasers Optional: markers, extra pencils, glue stick, colored pencils, glitter glue, scissors (these will be kept in the backpack until needed, usually for projects)
Absences Your child needs to be on time to school so that he/she does not miss anything If your child is absent, please call the school to let us know When your child returns to school, he/she needs to bring in a note giving the reason for the absence.
Before School Have your child use the bathroom and have a drink before leaving your house to come to school so that he/she does not have to use it so soon after arriving in school.
Classroom Rules Listen and follow directions the first time they are given. Work quietly and do not disturb others. Raise your hand and wait your turn to speak. Keep your hands, feet, and objects to yourself. Be kind and respect others and their property. Stay in your seat.
