“I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.”    John 13:34

Updated: May 27, 2020,

Can you believe we have only 4 days of school left? There are no more packets to return and all of our work will be assigned and corrected during the ZOOM sessions each day. Please remember to check emails 30 minutes before our scheduled time and try to sign in 15-20 before so we can try to solve any issues at that time. If you are having trouble signing in to the session, email me directly and I will try to fix the situation.

Students should be cleaning out the hardcover textbooks to return next week. This includes: Math, Science and Reading. The Science and Reading are brand new so there should be NO writing in them and the Math books were new last year. Before you return your books to school, please remove the covers and ALL Post-It notes and papers that may have been placed inside the books. Keep in mind that we are also respecting social distancing. I will be very pleased to see all of you next week, but we will be unable to have more than 2 students at a time in the classroom returning their books and picking up personal items. Please be respectful of this practice. Daniela and Thomas also need to return their copy of “Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key”

  • Be on time for ZOOM sessions. I will not admit anyone into our session more than 10 minutes after we have begun. I am aware that sometimes a sibling’s session runs long, but they need to leave that session so you can get into yours. All the teachers are aware that many of you share a device.  Likewise, I know my sessions may run long, so if you need to leave, please do so.  
  • Be in a quiet place with all your materials. We are limited on our time and when we have to wait for you to get your supplies or repeat information because of background noise, it is a waste of our time 
  • I need to “see” you during the session. If you leave, turn the camera away, or turn off the camera you risk being marked absent for the day. It is important that you are in attendance for at least one session per day to be counted in attendance.
  • Try to attend BOTH ZOOM sessions. The PM session is NOT a repeat of the AM session. In the AM we do Math and Language Arts. In the afternoon we do Religion, Science, & Social Studies. 
  • Keep up with work on IXL. Skills continue to be assigned in Math and now in Science and Social Studies. Completing these count towards your overall grade. Not completing them will lower your grade. Be responsible and continue with the good work habits that have been expected throughout the year.

Important Dates to Remember:

Monday & Tuesday, June 1 & 2, 2020 ——— textbook drop off and pick up personal items in the classroom. PLEASE, ONLY 2 STUDENTS AT A TIME IN THE CLASSROOM.

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 ——– last day of school & last ZOOM session

 

Upcoming Tests, Quizzes, and Projects:

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.

— 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.

— Transition quietly from one subject to the next.

—- Remain in your sit. If you need to use the bathroom or get up for another reason, raise your hand to ask for permission.

— Verbal Warning

— Name in book

— Lose recess minutes

— Inform the assistant principal: a consequence may result
