Homework Policy
We will give homework to reinforce what has been learned in class, prepare students for upcoming lessons, teach responsibility, extend concepts, and develop positive study habits. We usually give students time in class to begin their assignments. If they are using their time wisely, they will have a good start before they come home. We try not to assign homework over the weekend. We feel as though your weekends are already very busy and it is nice to spend time doing things as a family.
Homework is to be turned in first thing in the morning. If your child has not completed an assignment, he/she will be staying inside during the second recess to complete their work. Points will be deducted for late assignments. If the assignment is not turned in by the end of the week, the student will receive a zero in the grade book.

Assignment Notebook
The students will be receiving their own assignment notebook. At the end of each day, we write down every assignment that needs to be completed by the next day. If your child has completed that assignment, it should be checked off in the notebook. Please check the assignment notebook every night so you will know what we are working on in school. After you have made sure that your child has completed the work, please sign the page. We do check assignment notebooks periodically to make sure the students are sharing them with you. It is the child's responsibility to make sure you have checked the notebook.

Discipline - Rules
1. Listen, follow directions, and do things the first time you are told.
2. Respect others and their property.
3. Raise your hand and wait to be called on to speak.
4. Be prepared for class every day.
5. Do your very best at all times.

5) send to principal

Severe Clause: Students committing a serious offense will be directed to the principal immediately.

**Consequences may be adjusted to fit the misbehavior at the teachers discretion.

To encourage students to follow the classroom rules, we will reinforce appropriate behavior with verbal and nonverbal praise, awards, rewards, and tickets to be used for classroom privileges. We expect our students to follow all classroom and school rules throughout the day.


Weekly Progress Reports
Please look for these every Friday. They are a quick way for you to see your child's progress in school work and behavior. If a student is missing work, they are responsible for taking the work home to finish. Missing work is posted in the classroom. Please sign and return the form the following Monday.

The Take Home Folder will be coming home nightly and should return to school each morning. Check the folder daily for notes, information, graded papers, and homework.
