Updated: January 16, 2021

Recently, the students were asked to write a “Happy Birthday” letter to Baby Jesus and include their complete mailing address. It was a bit of a surprise to find out that many students did not know their address and some didn’t know what information should be included in their address. It is important that students know their complete address and are able to write it down. Another skill some students are lacking, and this is probably due to cell phones, is the ability to call someone on a phone. Either they don’t know the number or they don’t know how to use a traditional phone. Added to this challenge is the inability to dial a long distance number which people with cell phones might have.  Because of this, each student will bring home an index card to write their full and correct home address on and the phone number of a person they would contact if they were sick or forgot something. The students will be tested on this information Friday, January, 22nd.

Parents, please encourage your child to continue working on the IXL skills in both Math and Language Arts. These are meant to supplement what is being taught in the classroom. Students also have access to Reflex Math. This is another program that is used to help students improve and master basic math skills in a “game” format.

Accelerated Reader: Students will be required to read and take 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests and corresponding Vocabulary Quizzes (if available…not every book has one) within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, each Quarter. Your child’s range is written in the back of his/her Planner. Reading levels will be adjusted throughout the year.  Three AR Tests with a minimum score of 80% are due at the end of each quarter.  Please encourage your child NOT to wait until the last-minute! Be sure to check out `ARBookFind.com for book recommendations and AR levels.

Homework Policy:

— Neatly done and complete.

— If collected, the student’s name must be on the top right corner to receive full credit.

— If there is no name, there is no credit. Students are reminded to write their name before they turn anything in and it is the first direction given for tests.

— All Math homework is to be done in pencil, never in pen.

— A student will complete a Homework Notice for any assignment that receives a zero. This notice explains why the assignment received a zero and must be signed by a parent and returned the next day.  If the assignment is attached with the situation corrected, the student will receive 50% credit on that assignment instead of a zero.

Class Rules:

— Have all needed books, notebooks, spirals, and supplies at your desk for the portion of day because you will not be allowed to return to the cubby to get something.
