    registered and pre-paid in order to stay in ASP.
    The price per day is 7.00. There is a 10.00
    registration fee for ASP, making the first day
    17.00. Please register your child if you think
    there may ever be a time your child would stay.
  • Agendas Please review agendas each night. Your
    childs behavior number will be written in the
    agenda daily. We may also communicate other
    important information through the agenda. Please
    initial it nightly so that we know you have seen

Blog and Behavior
  • Behavior Please reinforce good behavior with
    your child at home. Behavior is based on a number
    coded system. Your child will start everyday on
    a 3. Based on their behavior the clips are moved
    for inappropriate behaviors such as when off
    task, talking, or out of their seat. The first
    move is to 2 for a warning and 5 minutes off
    recess. Then 1 for 10 minutes out. Students can
    also move back up for changing their behavior and
    making more positive choices. If a student has
    remained on a 3 all day, and has gone above and
    beyond with behavior choices in some way, they
    may move to a 4.
  • Blog-We have a blog up and running! It will be
    updated weekly. Please check it each week!

    the week of October 20(Monday - Friday). The

    from the main office, not from the
    classroom. Also, no child will be
    dismissed from the classroom after

Daily Reading
  • Read daily with your child for at least 15 to 20
    minutes. Research has proven that reading with
    and to your child daily can and does increase
    their reading abilities! Please write the name of
    the book that you read each night in the agenda.

Help and Homework
  • Help Help your child to become more
    independent. This is a huge part of the
    transition to second grade and assists them in
    the higher grades as well.
  • Homework We have a homework notebook. Each
    month your child will have a new calendar of
    homework assignments in that notebook. Please
    check homework nightly, and go over it with your
    child if there are any mistakes. Initial
    homework each night so that I know you have
    reviewed it together.

  • Please take an interest in what your child does
    in school. Ask them specific questions so they
    can share their day with you.

  • Your child has a homework journal, writing
  • and math journal. They are used daily to
    complete multiple assignments. So do not keep
    these at home.

  • Keep your childs work for remembrance.

Lunch and Library
  • Lunch Our class goes to lunch from 1134
    1204. Please join us any time you can. We
    encourage you to pay for your childs lunches by
    the week or month. The cafeteria will keep a
    record of your childs account. The lunch fee is
    2.15 a day. Unless you have been notified
  • Library - Our class will go to the library as a
    class once a week. Please see that your child
    has read his or her library books, and returns
    them to school on time so
    that they can check out new ones.

Medication and Math
  • Medication If your child needs to take any
    form of medication at school, the school must
    have written permission to dispense. The
    medication must be in the original container. You
    (the parent) must turn in the medicine to the
    office. It will be stored in the clinic and
    dispensed by the school nurse. We are not
    allowed to handle any medication.

  • Please clearly label your childs belongings.
    Please help your child to remember to label all
    work that is turned in! Children should not be
    writing in cursive yet.

    day! Homework journals are sent home everyday
    along with daily communication folders.

    graders will work on during the

    your child to be organized and
    lend them support
    whenever possible.

    change for your child. There is an expectation

    with various activities in the class or within
    the school.

    bring anything to school that is or even looks
    like a weapon (toys included). This is a very
    strict policy within the county.

You, the parent
  • You, the parent, are the most important factor
    in your childs learning process. Please be
    involved as much as possible.

    child to learn and feel great each day.

  • I feel privileged to have your child in our
    class this year. We have an awesome class! We
