Class Rules As part of a Responsive Classroom, our class will create their “Hopes and Dreams”. This is their goal or what they want to learn for the year. We will then use their “Hopes and Dreams” to create a list of norms or rules for the classroom that will allow us to reach our goals!
Attendance: Call the attendance line (379-4904) when your child is going to be gone.
Notes: Please send a note or call if your child will be picked up by someone else or is riding the bus home with a friend.
Arrival and Departure: Outside the back doors is a good place to drop off or pick up your child.
Times: 7:50am Breakfast 8:10am Arrival Starts 8:20am School Starts
11:30am Lunch 2:50pm School Ends
Take-Home Folders: Will be coming home every night and need to be returned the next day. These folders are a way for you to communicate with me, as well as a way in which you can send important notes, lunch money, etc. back to me
Milk / Snack Break: We will be having a milk/snack break during the day. If your child decides not to get milk or snack from the snack cart, you can bring in bottled water and a HEALTHY snack from home.
Book Orders: Will be sent home once a month on a Monday and need to be returned on Friday if you choose to purchase any books.
Library: The students will be able to go to the library everyday and Mrs. Waltman and I will show the students how to select books that are appropriate for them.
Specialists: This year your child’s specialist schedule will look different. We will be having a 4 day rotation that will include music, phy. ed., art, and technology/media.
Wish List: Bottom of the supply list (clorox wipes, dixie cups, paper plates, small paper bags, and a variety of baggie sizes)
We will be using the Minnesota state standards, Everyday Math program, and the Daily 5 math approach to teach these skills: counting, adding, subtracting, money, graphing, time, ordering & comparing numbers, and place value.
