To give you some time to plan & prepare, the 4th and 5th grade will travel to St. Augustine on Friday, March 27. The permission slips will not be sent home until we return after the holidays in January, but I want to let you know ahead of time of the cost of the trip. The cost for each student is $36.00 which includes the guided tour of the Castillo de San Marcos, the Trolley Tour, lunch from Subway, and the bus transportation. Our day will also include a walk down St George St. and visiting the Basilica. The Subway lunch includes a bottled water, chips, cookie, & a choice of ham, turkey, or veggie sub. Lettuce, tomato and condiments will be provided on the side. This is an all day event. We will leave the school at 8:15 AM and return at 2:00 PM

I would like to take 5 parent chaperones with us on the trip. The cost for chaperones is $39.50 and includes all of the above. Chaperones will be able to ride the bus with us will avoid the cost of parking. If you have the required volunteer documentation and are able to spend the whole day with us in St. Augustine, send in a note with your child or send an email to me. If I get more than 5 volunteers, I will pull a name from a hat.

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.
