    • 2013~2014 Ms. Chau Mandarin Immersion College  Park  Behavior  Expectations     1.  Respect  Yourself  and  Others   • Keep  your  hands,  feet,  and  body  away  from  others  (no  contact  games  or  tag)   • Be  safe.    Walk  in  hallways  and  play  safely.   • Protect  school  buildings  and  keep  our  campus  clean.   • Respect  the  property  of  others.   2. Be  Ready  to  Learn   • Be  where  you  belong.   • Arrive  at  class  on  time.   • Have  your  materials  ready.   • Follow  directions   3. Be  Responsible  for  Your  Learning   • Make  good  use  of  your  time   • Work  quietly  so  others  around  you  can  learn.   • Do  your  assignments  on  time  and  neatly.   • Do  your  best.   4. Attendance:     • School  begins  promptly  at  8:13  am.  We  begin  learning  right  away!   • Please  schedule  doctor  and  dentist  appointments  for  after  school  and  on  weekends.   5. Uniform:   • Navy  blue  bottoms   • White  collared  shirts   • Navy  sweatshirts  and  jackets.     • Please  put  your  child’s  name  in  all  their  clothing  items.     6. Recess  and  lunch:   • Snacks  are  to  be  eaten  at  the  picnic  table  before  going  to  the  playground  to  play.    It  is  helpful  to   many  students  to  have  a  nutritious  snack  for  the  10:15  recess.   • 2nd  and  3rd  graders  eat  lunch  from  12:35  to  12:55.  Wednesday  minimal  day:  parents  pick  up   students  at  12:35  after  school  assembly.     7. Birthdays:   • At  College  Park  we  understand  how  special  celebrating  a  birthday  is  to  our  students.    However,   due  to  the  importance  of  learning  time,  we  are  not  able  to  have  in-­‐class  birthday  parties  or   celebrations.       • If  parents  would  like  to  bring  a  treat  for  the  class  for  your  child’s  birthday  we  ask  that  it  follow   our  healthy  guidelines  policy.    We  will  only  accept  treats  that  are  in  individual  servings.       • Birthday  treats  will  pass  these  out  at  the  end  of  the  day  before  students  go  home.       • Remember  –  we  are  a  peanut-­‐free  campus.   8. Items  brought  from  home   • Toys,  electronics,  or  anything  valuable  needs  to  stay  at  home.       • School  cannot  accept  liability  for  the  items  brought  from  home,  and  they  distract  from  student   learning.   • If  your  child  happens  to  bring  a  toy  from  home,  it  will  be  taken  away  and  given  back  at  the  end   of  school  day.    
    • 2013~2014 Ms. Chau Mandarin Immersion   College Park School Parent Volunteer and Visitor Guidelines 2013-14 We are delighted to have parents and volunteers on our campus. Parents’ are a child’s first teachers and are vital to the success of students throughout their education. These guidelines are to assist parents in knowing how to help not only their child but all the children at College Park. 1. School hours are 8:13 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. If you come on campus between those times you must sign in at the office and wear a visitor badge. This is for the safety of all students. 2. Parents are asked NOT to speak to the teacher after the 8:13 bell rings. The teacher is to be focused on the students to get learning started immediately. If you have an emergency, please go to the office and someone will assist you. 3. Our office staff has a full day of work and while it is difficult for them to find time to send messages or delivery late lunches/homework, we do understand all families have those rare “emergency mornings.” If you need to get a message or package to your student, just drop by the office. Students may not receive packages, papers, calls or messages during instructional time but we do page students at recess. 4. Please make an appointment to visit or volunteer in the classroom, either by making an individual appointment or by signing up for a specific weekly time with the classroom teacher. This way the teacher is prepared for you and can give you their undivided attention. 5. Many teachers are available for a quick question after school. If the classroom door is open, feel free to step in. If your question will take longer than a minute or so, it is best to make an appointment. Many teachers have meetings right after school and they are required to be on time. 6. Parents on campus may use the restrooms in the gym. By state law, NO adults are allowed in a student restroom, not even to accompany their own child. 7. On Wednesdays, parents are asked to wait until the 12:35 dismissal bell rings before taking their students home. The playground is closed until 6pm every day.
    • 2013~2014 Ms. Chau Mandarin Immersion Get Involved Here are the many ways you can volunteer at College Park! PTA Annual Events The PTA (Parent Teacher Association) holds several events & fundraisers throughout the year that rely on parent volunteer support. These events raise money to cover enrichment programs for all students at College Park and are a fun way to get to know fellow College Park parents. All have various time commitments & PTA will ask for volunteers as we begin planning. The 2012-13 dates are indicated but watch your weekly Panda Press for additional events or date changes. Pizza Bingo Night: Sept 28. A great evening of pizza, bingo & a workshop raffle. Students can “purchase” a spot at workshops hosted by teachers and parents. Organized by a committee, with volunteers needed to assist with set-up, clean-up, food/beverages, raffle tickets & table, workshop organization, and more. Book Fair & Bake Sale: Oct 1-5 & March 11-15. Parents can help by baking items to sell, selling items during recess & lunch, or staffing the book fair. Art & Science Day: March 8. A wonderful day of hands-on learning for students! Parents can sign up to teach or assist with an Art or Science workshop, or can help students get to their assigned classes. International Day: May 18. The PTA's biggest fundraiser of the year! A family fun-filled Saturday with potluck lunch, carnival games, silent auction, raffle, cultural costume parade and more. Organized by a committee with volunteers needed to assist with set-up, clean-up, games, food, and other aspects. All School Activities These are critical positions that benefit all students. They require a year-long commitment but are the MOST fun! Art in Action: Lead or assist in art classes every 2-3 weeks throughout the school year (curriculum & training provided). Class time is set by homeroom teacher. Can be shared amongst several parents. One-time training workshop in Menlo Park. Approx. 1-6 hours/month. (Contact Sharon Vause: sharonbvause@gmail.com) Music for Minors: Lead one or more 30-minute music class weekly throughout the school year (curriculum & training provided). Class time is set by homeroom teacher. Training is 4-5 hours/week for 3 months in Fall for new volunteers. Approx 3-6 hours/month. (Contact Erik Chen: runforyourlives@gmail.com) Copy Committee: This is a quick easy task of making copies for classes and the office. Anytime during school hours, 8am-3:30pm. (Contact Diana Hallock: dhallock@smfc.k12.ca.us) Lunchtime & Playground Play Pals: 2-4 parents are needed daily to assist little ones with lunches and to encourage safe & positive play amongst students. (Contact Diana Hallock: dhallock@smfc.k12.ca.us) In the Classroom Every teacher handles volunteers a bit differently and specific information for YOUR child’s class will be shared at Back to School Night, August 14 or 16. These volunteer positions are requested by most teachers. Room Parent: Single point person who helps the homeroom teacher communicate with all parents & coordinates volunteers for classroom activities throughout the year. 1-5 hours/month. Folder Preparation: Help prepare homework folders. Weekly commitment, approx. 4 hours/month. In-class Assistance: Assist teacher in the classroom with lessons, material prep work, computer lab, science lessons, per teacher request. Weekly commitment, approx. 4-6 hours/month. Field Trip Chaperone: Teachers will request a specific number of parent chaperones to accompany students on field trips throughout the year. Room parent or teacher will announce details. College Park PTA asks parents to volunteer at the school 4 hours per month. We thank you for supporting your child’s education! NOTE: All volunteers must be fingerprinted for SMFC School District & attend a Volunteer Training at the school. Details will be sent out in August.

    • 2013~2014 Ms. Chau Mandarin Immersion Homework,  Planning,  and  Organization   The  district  guideline  for  homework  is  30-­‐40  minutes  per  night.    If  homework  is  taking  significantly  longer,  or  if   it  involves  tears,  please  let  the  teacher  know  so  that  we  can  work  with  your  child  on  strategies.     Grade  Level  Content  Standards  can  be  found  at  www.cde.ca.gov         Conferences  and  Report  Cards   Fall  conferences:  September  30-­‐October  4  (Parents  Only)   Spring  conferences:  March  31-­‐April  3  (Parents  and  Students)   School  will  dismiss  at  12:50  p.m.  each  day.   Report  Cards  are  distributed  three  times  during  the  year:   The  first  and  second  report  card  will  be  distributed  at  the  fall  and  spring  conference.   The  final  report  card  is  sent  home  with  your  student  on  the  last  day  of  school.  
    • 2013~2014 Ms. Chau Mandarin Immersion Behavior  Management  in  Room  16     Our  class  uses  red  color  magnetic  circles  to  help  children  monitor  their  behaviors.  Each  day,  all  children  begin   with  5  red  circles.  If  your  child  is  having  difficulty  following  rules,  he/she  will  lose  one  circle  each  time  he/she   misbehaves  in  the  classroom.  If  his/her  behavior  improves,  he/she  will  get  his/her  red  circle  back.  If  a  child   shows  exceptionally  good  behavior,  he/she  will  earn  yellow  circles.  At  the  end  of  the  day,  the  children  will   receive  the  following:         Each  red  circle  =  5  cents  toy  money   5  red  circles  =  25  cents     5  red  circles  +  1  yellow  circle  =  30  cents     5  red  circles  +  2  yellow  circle  =  35  cents     Every  other  Friday,  the  children  may  use  his/her  toy  money  to  buy  Ms.  Chau  coupon,  which  they  can  exchange   for  a  privilege  or  some  goodies  from  teacher.  Each  day,  ask  your  child  how  many  circles  he  or  she  has   earned—look  for  the  coupons  or  prize  your  child  wins!     Other  than  the  individual  reward  system,  there  are  several  other  reward  systems  in  our  class:   • Table  points  for  small  group  collaboration   • Marble  jar  for  whole  class  reward   • Constructive  language  reward       Consequences  for  Unacceptable  Behaviors       Occasionally  children  have  difficulty  following  class  and  school  rules.  At  these  times,  I  will  try  to   redirect  the  child’s  behavior  through  eye  contact,  verbal  warning,  removing  the  red  circles,  or  quiet  reminders.   If  this  does  not  help  to  improve  the  child’s  behavior,  one  or  more  of  the  following  consequences  will  be  used:     1. Time-­‐out  at  the  “Quiet  Chair”   This  gives  the  child  time  to  calm  down  and  get  ready  to  rejoin  the  class  activity.  If  the  behavior  occurs   outside  of  the  classroom  (hallway,  playground,  cafeteria,  etc.)  variations  of  this  consequence  will  be   used.   2. Time-­‐out  in  another  teacher’s  classroom   This  will  be  used  if  the  unacceptable  behavior  is  not  improved  by  a  time-­‐out  in  our  classroom.   3. Note,  phone  call  home,  or  conference  with  parent  after  school.   This  might  include  behavior  checklists  completed  daily.     4. Loss  of  privilege  or  copy  work   This  might  include  recess  time  or  special  activities.  If  there  is  no  privilege  (outside  of  the  classroom,   field  trip  etc.)  to  take  away,  assign  copy  work  may  apply.   5. Office  Referral   This  can  be  used  for  behaviors  that  disrupt  instruction  or  threaten  others  (hitting,  kicking,  biting,  etc.).       This  list  is  an  overview  of  my  discipline  policy.  Other  consequences  may  be  used  if  they  are  appropriate  for  the   behavior.  Please  refer  to  the  Student  Handbook  for  policies  regarding  suspension  and  expulsion.     Art,  Music  or  computer  teachers  may  have  different  policies  for  managing  unacceptable  behaviors.
