Students may enter the classroom on the first bell, which is 7:50. The class begins promptly at 8:00 in the morning and at 12:00 in the afternoon. We will be on a 6-day cycle, A through F. Students will have our classroom schedule pasted into their homework book and a school calendar will also be sent home each month. There will be no snack time or recess until further notice. It is important to note the 'specials' for each day to prepare materials appropriately. Students will be dismissed at 10:40 in the morning and at 2:40 in the afternoon.
Homework will be assigned Monday to Thursday to reinforce the skills learned in class. Students will be recording their homework in their assigned homework notebook. Please ask your child each day what their homework is so that you are aware of your child's responsibilities. Please allow your child to complete their homework independently. If you feel your child is having a difficult time with their homework please write me a note on the sheet so that I may address the concept. I expect homework to be completed neatly and returned the following day. If students forget their homework they will be given a one-day grace period and expected to return the work the following day. If students still choose not to complete their homework an appropriate consequence will be given. Please help in making homework a positive experience as it instills responsibility, organizational skills and develops study habits.
