Announcements
Our New School Year
Welcome parents to our 2017-18 school year. We are off to a great year of learning. Your child has five core subject areas. The subject areas are Math, Language Arts, Writing, Social Studies and Science.
I will be posting in the Class Dojo about any current or up coming assignments. Please check your child's book bag daily for homework, as well as any information that may be sent home. I can be reached here at the school by calling the main office or through the Class Dojo with any concerns are questions. I look forward to teaching your child this school year.

Welcom Back School Letter
September 6, 2016

Dear Parent(s) Guardian(s),

Welcome back to a new school year. I hope you have shared an enjoyable summer together! I look forward to working with you to support and enrich your child's academic growth, and making it an enjoyable and successful year together.
Parents, please sign up for the Focus parent portal as we will no longer use paper report cards or warning notices. The school day starts at 8:10am and ends at 2:35pm.


Being prepared for the school is the step in the right direction, so let's begin talking about school supplies. Your child will need the following:
-a book bag,-7 marble notebooks (no binders or spiral notebooks please!),
-2 sturdy 2 pocket folders,-sharpened pencils (at least 5 in the book bag daily).

Your child will be receiving homework each night, therefore he/she will need to keep certain supplies at home (PLEASE DO NOT SEND THESE ITEMS TO SCHOOL!):
-a dictionary, -a pack of loose leaf paper, -extra pencils, -crayons/markers, -scissors, -a ruler, -an eraser, -a sharpener, -a glue.



Now let's talk about expectations, classrooms rules, consequences. It is very important that your child adhere to the following:
-come to school prepared each day (book bag, homework folder, homework assignment, projects, and in complete uniform)
-homework is given daily and it is to be turned in on time and in neat condition.
-read at least 15-25 minutes each day. If possible, with a parent or older sibling present.
-please sign and return all test papers, and check your child's homework daily.
-school and classroom rules must be obeyed always.
-a note is required upon returning to school whenever a child is out sick.
-visit the public library at least twice a month
-bring two boxes of tissues and two bottles of hand sanitizer for the school year. They will be shared among all students.

Consequences for failure to complete assignments and for behavior problems will be as follows.
-First: a verbal warning
-Second: in class detention plus a phone call home
-Third: a parent conference
-Fourth: possible suspension

If you would like to meet with me, please refer to your child's schedule to make an appointment or leave a brief note in your child's homework notebook. I would be more than happy to meet with you. I look forward to meeting each and everyone of you at our "Back To School Night."

Sincerely,


Ms. Scott
