About the Teacher

Classroom Management
Our school will be using the Positive
Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS)
program to promote a positive school
climate that fosters being respectful,
responsible, and ready to learn. This
program is designed to promote the
following behavior expectations:

Perform at Personal Best


Act Responsibly
Work & Play Safely
Show Respect

Classroom Management
A color chart will be used to recognize correct and incorrect
behavior. Students will be able to move up and down the chart
throughout the day depending on their behavior. The color the
child is on at the end of the day will be marked in the agenda.
The colors are as follows:

P.A.W.S.-itively Purple
Outstanding Orange
Go, Go Green (every student begins here everyday)
Yield on Yellow
Reconsider Red

If a student falls below Green three times in one week, they will
receive a quick slip that indicates the undesirable behavior
that occurred and the interventions that took place to prevent
any future occurrences.

Parent/Teacher Communication
I will send home a weekly newsletter on Friday for the
following week so you can, Plan Ahead. Please look for these
and let me know if you have any questions.
On Wednesdays, you will receive a folder containing your
childs work from the previous week. Please remove these
papers and review them with your child so you can stay up to
date with what they are learning.
I will use the binder to send home notes about field trips,
school events, conferences, behavior, etc. Please make sure
you check the agenda daily and respond promptly. Also, make
sure your phone number is up to date so that we can contact
you easily.

Parent/Teacher Communication

Transportation Changes- please send in a note to let us


know if your child will be going home a different way. Send
it in the agenda so I can get it to the office and verified first
thing in the morning. Make sure to sign and date it.

the day the child returns. Please include the date(s) the
child was absent.

Homework

Unless otherwise noted, your child will receive their


homework packet at the beginning of each week. This
homework is intended to practice Reading and Math fluency
and application.

Reading: Students will read the passage twice (document


words per minute each time). Then, answer a question
related to the passage. Make sure to restate the question
and give text evidence from the passage. (Approx. 5-10
min.)

timed). Then, students will complete 2 math questions.
(Approx. 5-10 min.)

Your child is responsible for keeping track of their


homework packet.

Graded work will come home every Wednesday for you to

will be given opportunities to retake the assignment.
Progress reports and report cards will each go home 4 times a year.
