    BOBCAT FOLDER – This folder contains pockets to help keep your child organized and provide communication between home and school.  It is imperative that this folder be brought to class daily. This will also have a calendar record of your student's behavior in school. This will help you be more specific about asking your student what they are learning for the week. I will be using Remind 101 for classroom updates. It is a one way text service that will give you information and reminders of upcoming events.

    MATH HOMEWORK -  Please check over your child’s folder regularly to ensure their success.  Please encourage your child to read and do their math practice nightly. As in the previous grades, I expect your child to be practicing their facts during the week. Your student will grow tremendously with this weekly practice! If the child fails to do their weekly practice, it will reflect on their citizenship grade and they will owe time during ZAP.
     
    ZAP (Zeros Aren't Permitted) is a scheduled time during the week for your student to make up missing or incomplete work.

    TARDIES/ABSENCES AND MAKE-UP WORK -
    Good attendance is vital to success.  However, when absences occur your child will receive the missed assignments.  If a student is absent one day, two nights will be allowed to complete the make-up work.  Another night is added for each day a student is absent.  If your child needs to stay home for more than two days but could work on assignments at home, please call the office during the morning hours and request that the work be prepared to send home.  If a call is received after lunch, we cannot guarantee the work will be ready to go home that afternoon.  This can help keep your child from being overwhelmed upon his or her return from an extended absence.  

    ----------------------------------------------------------

     
    DISCIPLINE - We have high expectations for the behavior of our students.  Our positive approaches strongly encourage good citizenship necessary for student success.  However, when a student chooses not to follow the rules they can expect the following consequences: 

    ·         A verbal warning (marked as a “W” in the folder) 

    ·         1st  check =10 minutes of ZAP

    ·         2nd check = 20 minutes of ZAP/Parent contact

      

     

    A behavior calendar will be sent home every day in their RED folder.  Graded papers from the week go home on Fridays.  If your child has a check(s)  Students will receive a citizenship grade on their report card based on the following scale:                  

                        E = 0-5 checks received during the 9 weeks period

                        S = 6-10 checks received during the 9 weeks period

                        N = 11-15 checks received during the 9 weeks period

                        U = 16 or more checks received during the 9 weeks period

     

    ----------------------------------------------------------
     
    BACKGROUND CHECKS- For your child’s safety all parents who volunteer to supervise a group of students (including field trips and eligibility to ride the bus) will be required to complete a background check.  This will need to be done at least one month before the scheduled event.  These forms were available on line during registration. 
     

    ----------------------------------------------------------

     
     
    PROGRESS & REPORT CARDS – Progress reports are sent out every 3 weeks. So you will receive 2 progress reports and 1 report card each grading period. Report Cards are sent home the Thursday AFTER the end of each 9 weeks.  Please review, sign and return as soon as possible.  I encourage you to sign up for FAMILY ACCESS to be able to review your child's grades.  These forms are available online.
