Occasionally I have small chores that can be completed at home that would count for parent involvement hours. Another way to earn parent involvement hours is to send in things as needed. These items would include items for science projects, and rewards such as pencils, cool erasers, stencils, cool school supplies, etc. Please be sure to include a receipt so that when you have accumulated $50, credit will be posted to you for the Parent Involvement time earned. Thank you so much for your support of our class!
Mark your calendars …
for the Buffalo Basket Benefit on November 8th at Lake Miona Recreation Center.
is a classroom basket auction? Each home room class at
Our classroom basket theme is: “All About Her”
We ask that each student donate at least one item to the basket. All donated items will earn Parental Involvement Hours (PI) based on the $ value of the item but you must turn in your receipts to receive PI hours.
Thank you to all of you who are checking your child’s homework nightly and making corrections, initialing their homework, and their planner. Please help your child get into the routine of checking their planner nightly to be sure they have completed all of their homework. Many of our children seem to think if they don’t have a worksheet for a particular subject, they don’t have any homework in that subject for the night. They are forgetting to look at the planner, which shows that they may have spelling homework, reading homework, or study homework that did not require a worksheet. It is a good idea to check your child’s planner when signing it just to be sure you have seen all the required work. Just as a reminder, late and missing work will have a negative effect on your child’s grade. A maximum of 60% will be awarded for work turned in one day late, and a zero will be entered in the grade book thereafter. Homework is designed to practice skills learned in class, so it is very important that it be done on time. Please note, absent assignments do not fall under this category. The “Absent Homework Policy” still stands. The Handbook Attendance Policy states that in order to receive credit for missed work due to an absence, a student must turn in assignments upon returning to school within the number of days missed plus one day. Thank you for all of your support.
Every Monday their graded work comes home. Please take a moment to read my comments from the week, and go over the contents of the folder with your child. This is a wonderful opportunity to praise your child for their accomplishments. Thanks again.
