Welcome to Mrs. Payne’s Math and Science and Mrs. Skidmore’s Language Arts, Reading, and Social Studies class!
In 5 th grade… We are preparing your child for Intermediate school. We feel it is very important to have…. –High expectations –Low tolerance for discipline issues This includes: Not following directions Not having materials and assignments
Zero Tolerance Bullying will not be tolerated. This includes hitting, kicking, teasing, threatening, taunting, assaulting, or any other form of written, verbal, physical, or electronic harassment toward another student.
–For unexcused absences, a student commits a criminal offense if the student is absent for 10 or more days or parts of days in a six month period or three or more days or parts of days in a four week period. –If a student misses more than 18 days during the school year, he or she may not receive credit for the class except for an illness that is verified by a written doctor’s note.
