Fourth and Fifth grade are taking a field trip to St. Augustine on Thursday, March 30th. We will leave the school @ 9:00 AM and return @ 1:45 PM. The students will visit the Fort, ride the trolley and have lunch provided by Subway which includes either a ham, turkey or veggie sandwich, chips, cookie and bottled water. The cost of the trip is $33.50. The permission slip is coming home today and must be returned with the payment BEFORE FEBRUARY 16th.

Chaperones for the trip have been chosen from the hat. Thank to all who volunteered. The lucky four are: Mrs. Cole, Mrs. Solomon, Mr. Sumbeling, and Mrs. Victorino.

Help Session is every Thursday immediately after school until 3:30 PM. Students not picked up by 3:35 PM will be sent to extended day at the parent’s expense. The purpose of Help Session is to assist students who are struggling in the classroom and earning a grade of D or F. It will also help those who have been absent and need to make up tests or a Science activity. It is not intended for someone trying to make straight A’s or A/B Honor Roll.

Please remember that cell phones and Smart watches are NOT permitted in the classrooms. They are to be dropped off in the office immediately upon entering the building and retrieved at dismissal. This is a Blessed Trinity policy.  Any violation will result in a Behavior Notice to the Assistant Principal.

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. All work must be shown to receive full credit. NO WORK, NO CREDIT.

— A student will complete a Homework Notice/ Sour Note, 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.

— Respect all adults, faculty, staff, volunteers, and students. Speak kindly and treat each other as you want to be treated.

— Raise your hand to ask or answer a question.

— Pencils are to be sharpened at the beginning of the day OR during classwork time.
