Week of Sept. 17-21st

Students will take the weekly Spelling Test on Friday on google classroom.  You can have your child log into the course at home so you can see what they spelled correctly or got wrong.  Students can only take a Spelling Test one time. If they are absent that day, I will not make up spelling test.

Students should be reading 20-30 minutes every night (Monday-Thursday) and filling out their reading logs.

Parents should be checking Student Planners each day and signing at the bottom of the planner.  This is how parents can see what their child has for homework every night and to make sure that the homework is being completed and returned to school on time.

Math homework is given a grade of 1 point.  If your child attempts the homework they will receive one point.  If the homework is not turned in, your child will not receive any credit.  Student Exit Tickets that are completed in class are given a check if the student understood the basic concept taught, a check plus if they completed the entire assignment correct, and a check minus if they are struggling with the concept.  Please use the Homework Helper sheets and the Tips for Parents sheets at home to discuss the math work with your child.

Reminder that this Wednesday, September 19th is a LATE START day.  The first bell will ring at 9:35 a.m.

Reminder that Snow Spirit Wear money and order forms are due this Friday, September 21st.

Reminder that Camp forms and money are due this Friday, September 26th.

Week of September 4th-7th

Welcome back from an extended Labor Day weekend! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend!

As the weather continues to be hot, please remember to send a water bottle with your child to school. Also, we have a healthy snack every morning around 10:30 a.m. since we have the late lunch at 12:40 p.m.

We will begin our new Math program starting today. Students will have homework in math each day after the lesson is taught in class. A homework helper guide will be coming home this week along with the first homework assignment. All of the workbooks will remain at school and students will tear pages out to go home as we use them. It is your child’s responsibility to keep these notebooks in good condition in their desks. If students lose or damage the books, it will be the family’s responsibility to replace them.

Students are expected to return all homework in on time.

Students should be reading at least 30 minutes each day at home.

Student Planners will be coming home as soon as the office delivers them to our classroom. Parents should look at the Student Planners each day for homework assignments and information from school along with signing each day in the planners.
