Mrs. Stacey Filone « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar


 Greetings Filone's Fabulous Fireballs,


My Open House Powerpoint is located below for you as a PDF Document. You may refer back to it at anytime to review our classroom policies and procedures. Thank you for all of your support!


Please be sure to read our monthly newsletter, grading policy, and behavior plan that was sent home last week. The behavior policy has a section that needs to be returned to me after you have discussed this at home with your child. Thank you for all of your support!


Important Reminders:

Please initial all of your child's homework after you have reviewed each assignment for completeness, accuracy and neatness. Agenda planners need to be initialed on a daily basis after all homework assignments have been completed and checked. Your child's behavior number will be written daily in their agenda.

Your child is permitted to bring a water bottle with them to school each day to keep at their desk. Please make sure it has a lid that can be closed tightly to keep any spills from happening.


Important Information:

Open House will be held on August 24th from 6:00-7:30 at the Intermediate Center.


Our lunch is every day from 11:12-11:37 in Cafeteria 1.
