Updated: December 9, 2018

We are fast approaching the end of the quarter. Keep in mind that we have an early dismissal next Tuesday, December 18th at 11:30. Lunch WILL NOT be served and there WILL NOT be extended day. Please arrange for ALL students to be picked up at dismissal on that day.

The annual Blessed Trinity Christmas Program is this Thursday evening at 7:00 P.M. in the church. Students need to be in their seats by 6:45 P.M. While you are waiting for he program to begin, please remember that we are in the church and be reverent. Keep any conversations to a whisper.

There is no fifth grade help session this week. The next session will be January 17, 2019.

The class party will be next Monday, December 17th. Each student is to bring $3.00 to cover the cost of their 2 slices of pizzas. Students have also signed up for various items to bring for the party.

Thank you to the Safety Patrols & parents going on the DC trip who turned in their deposits on time. It makes the bookkeeping aspect so much easier when deadlines are kept. Remember, the next deadline is the paperwork that is due by March 4th. The final trip payment is due April 1st and I will let you know the amount by March 1st once we have deducted the fundraising efforts.

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 ` 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.

Class Rules Violations: Any student choosing to not follow the above will complete a Behavior Notification Slip informing their parent of conduct for that day. This slip must be signed by a parent and returned the next day. An accumulation of these slips will affect the student’s conduct grade for the quarter.

— Name in book

— Lose recess minutes

— Silent lunch and inform the assistant principal
