• Homework Policyhw

    • Your child is responsible for copying down their assignments in their Assignment Planner. Please take time to check it, so you’ll know your child’s daily work.
       
    • Homework is usually given 4 nights per week as a review/reinforcement of what is taught in class, please check it over with your child.
       
    • Long term assignments will be given (ex. book reports). Please encourage your child to use the time wisely-no last minute efforts.
       
    • If homework is not handed in on time a “0” goes in the grade book until the assignment is complete. Late work gets partial credit, but must be made up within the week. 
    • Homework grades are based on neatness, effort, following directions, and errors and will be graded as follows:
        CheckPlus = Awesome, neat and no errors!
     
        Check =Acceptable/Few errors.
     
        Check Minus = Sloppy/Careless/Many Errors/Please Fix! 
    (This must be turned back in corrected.)
        Zero =Not completed, must be turned in immediately!  
     


    **If an assignment proves to be too difficult for your child and he/she required a lot of your help, please write a note or simply place a star in the upper corner-at the top of the paper. This will ensure that it will be reviewed with your child.**

     
    Homework teaches and encourages students to be independent and responsible.

      We expect proper behavior from all of our students. If an undesirable behavior is consistently happening, or an incident happens that is not appropriate, the child’s family will be notified.

     

    Please note that a child may lose special privileges and events as a consequence of improper behavior.
     
     
    Discipline Policy
      
    In case anyone does not follow the classroom rules and we do not feel that your child is acting on his/her best school behavior, we have the following discipline policy in place for our classroom:
     
     
    Minor Infractions (such as disrespect to any adult or student)
     
    First Offense: There will be a meeting in the hallway with a teacher.
    •  Second Offense: The child will write a letter home to his/her parents/guardians explaining what he/she did and why it was wrong. It will need to be signed and returned the very next day.
    • Third Offense: The child will make a phone call home with a teacher present, where he/she will explain the situation and a consequence given.
    • Fourth Offense: The child will be sent to the Principal’s Office to explain the situation. At this point, the Principal will issue the consequence. 
    Major Infractions  (such as physically hurting someone)
    • At any time: The child will go straight to the principal and she will issue the consequence
