“I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.”
Updated: September 27, 2020
A Box Top Competition is underway. We always collect Box Tops, but the homeroom that collects the most until October 23 will earn a NO UNIFORM DAY. Please scan your receipts and/or send in the Box Tops. Remember, each Box Top earns the school $0.10 . I explained to the 19 students in 5th grade that if each one of them brought in only 10 Box Tops every month during the school year, that would be $19 every month from just our class. This would total $190 for the whole school year. It helped them to understand that JUST $0.10 can add up very quickly.

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.
— 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.
— 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.
