Tests: Test grades cannot be adjusted. The grade made on a test is the grade recorded.
No Name Papers: Five points will be deducted for each paper with no name.
Tuesday Folders: This folder is yellow and will come home each Tuesday with work from the previous week and school bulletins. The folder should be returned to school on Wednesday with a parent signature. Work and bulletins should be kept at home for parent reference throughout the year.
Absences/Make-Up Work: A note explaining the absence should be given to the home base teacher when a student returns to school. After three consecutive absences, work may be requested by calling the school. Students have two days for every day absent to complete and turn in make-up work.
Texas Tickets: Students will earn Texas Tickets for good behavior. Texas Tickets are redeemable for coupons and privileges.
Behavior: Students cannot receive more than 2 marks on a behavior chart. If a student has 3 marks per day, they will forfeit their recess for the day. If students miss more than 2 days per week of recess, he/she will go to Study Hall during Fun Friday.
Fun Friday: Fun Friday is held on the playground from 2:25 – 3:00. Students may bring a drink, snack, and a game/toy (no electronics) to play with. To attend Fun Friday, students must have completed and turned in all work for the week. Students who sign the Recess Log 3 or more times in a week or receive a Discipline/Bus Referral will not attend Fun Friday.
Study Hall: Students who do not attend Fun Friday will attend Study Hall from 2:25 – 3:00 on Friday to complete missing, unfinished, unsatisfactory assignments and/or reflect on better behavior choices.
Birthdays: Students may bring prepackaged or precut birthday treats for their home base. Treats will be served in the classroom after lunch. Please notify the home base teacher at least one day in advance.
Snacks: Students may bring a water bottle and healthy snack each day to enjoy after Enrichment.
An important message from the nurse:
Many school children have health-related dietary restrictions, including peanut and/or tree nut allergies. For these students, strict avoidance is the only way to prevent a severe, life-threatening allergic reaction. We are asking your assistance in providing a safe learning environment for all students.
We respectfully ask that peanut or nut containing products be avoided in the classroom. This includes foods labeled “may be processed on equipment that processes nuts”. For some students, any exposure, even on skin contact, can cause a severe reaction. If your child has eaten any type of nut prior to coming to school, please assist him/her with thorough hand washing before coming to school.
The cafeteria has designated peanut-free areas so lunch time food selections do not require restrictions.
Thank you so much for your help in this matter. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
