Serve the Lord with gladness: come before Him with joyful song.”

Updated: September 24, 2022

This Wednesday, September 28, is the last day to turn in items for the 5th grade “Movie Night” basket for the Fall Fest. Thank you so much for the generosity you have shown already in the donations that have already come in with your children. Our basket is beginning to flow over with many tempting items. If you are trying to decide what to send, consider some movies or gift cards to local theaters.  Please do not send in any more microwave popcorn. We have plenty.

First quarter parent teacher conferences are scheduled for Thursday, October 13th and Friday, October 14th. Students will be dismissed at 12:15 PM to accommodate these conferences.  Notices went home with students this past Thursday. This allows three weeks for you to plan and make arrangements with your schedule. If you absolutely cannot make this time, contact me to schedule another time. Please do not just show up because, I may not be available. I will try try to schedule you during the following week, October 17th – 21st or earlier in the day during my planning periods on the 13th and 14th.  These conferences are mandatory because you will receive your child’s first quarter report card.

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 who wants 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.

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.
