Welcome to 4-212!
Classroom Rules and Consequences
Students in my classroom will be expected to follow the rules found in the Student Handbook. If necessary, consequences will be given based on the established Discipline Report found in the appendix of the handbook. School rules and consequences are posted in the room as a reminder to students.
One of my goals for this year is to help my students develop responsibility and organizational skills. Students will be responsible for keeping track of their own assignments through the use of the Homework Tracker. I will write each assignment on the board as it is assigned throughout the day. Students will be responsible for recording these homework assignments in their Trackers. I ask that parents initial the Tracker in the space provided verifying that the homework has been completed. I will also check the Tracker periodically.
Students will earn one point toward their final grade for all homework assignments completed on time. Homework is an integral part of learning and the points really add up, so please help to make homework a priority in your home.
If any student is absent, it is his/her responsibility to check for missed work upon return to school. Full credit will be given if the assignments are completed in a timely manner.
*Please remember the established homework policy at the IS. The consequence for three missed homework assignments is an afterschool detention.
Many students have birthdays during the school year and like to celebrate with the class. Small treats are certainly welcome if you choose to do so. Please be sure to send enough treats and supplies (napkins, utensils, etc.) for 25 students.
*******If your child intends to invite classmates to a birthday party, please plan on mailing the invitations unless all of the boys or all of the girls are invited. I don’t like to see any hurt feelings.
I have asked that each student have a book with them at all times to encourage independent reading. If a student does not have his own book, he/she will be asked to choose a book from our class library.
It is imperative that 4th graders know their multiplication facts. We will be working on many challenging concepts this year and knowing the facts will only make it easier for your child. Please start working now to help your son or daughter learn their facts!
