It is important that your child comes to school each and every day
well rested and ready to learn. Regular attendance at school is
critical for your child to achieve his/her highest academic potential.
Academic learning occurs all day and students who arrive late or
leave early miss valuable instructional time aimed at their
academic success. If your child arrives after 9:40 a.m. tardy bell,
you will need to park your car and come to the front office to sign
your child in for the day. If you child will be absent, you need to
notify the school of the reason why your child is absent. You can
call (813) 346-1488 to leave a recorded message why your child
is absent from school.
Veterans Homework Policy:
Homework Policy states that a 4th Grade teacher should only give a total
of 40 minutes of homework a night in all subject areas combined.
We ask that students read 15-20 minutes each night as a part of their
homework. I will also be sending home math practice worksheets.
However, we will only be sending those home when the skills have been
completely covered in class.

              Mrs. Maus’ additional HW info:
   •Reading logs will in the communication binder and
                    checked bi weekly.
   •Math homework will be assigned each night a new
   lesson is taught. No homework the night a test was
                           taken.
               •No weekend homework. : )

We will be recognizing your child’s birthday through
our weekly pod meetings, school-wide morning
announcements, and by the school giving a small
birthday token on their special day. At the end of each
month he/she will also enjoy birthday cake at a
special birthday table at lunch. It is VES policy to
recognize students’ birthdays in this way so that we
are not interrupting instruction. Gifts, cupcakes,
cakes, and other “party” items will not be allowed.
If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, at school or on a field
trip, at all this year, you must be approved by the county. I suggest
that everyone fill out the application and be approved so that you
don't have to worry about it later. It takes about 3 weeks to get
approved, so it is almost impossible to apply at the last minute before
a field trip if you want to chaperone. Please note that you must re-
apply each year. It can be done on-line contact me for the link.
          If you are already an approved volunteer, please let me know
or if you apply let me know when your approval comes through. I like
to keep track of my parents who are already approved.




                                                          Volunteer in
                                                         our Classroom!
Planners: minor behaviors and some notes will be
written in planners.

Email: weekly emails (Monday Nights) will be sent
to all parents. I will also email for more detailed
issues or behaviors if my schedule does not allow
me to call.

Newsletters: Occasionally, when many activities
are happening, such as the holidays and end of the
year.

Web Site: Our team website can be found under
the “teams” link on the school web page.
The planners are used school wide. They are used for parent/teacher
communication as well as keeping the students organized.

In my classroom, the planner can be a good tool for family planning.
Every Monday, when the students come in, I have them copy my
planner at the front of the room into their planners. This lets them
know what topics we are learning about in each subject that week,
when we have a test and when we have a schedule change. It also
helps to know about tests ahead of time or if your child is absent, it
lets you know what they missed or will be missing that day.

I suggest reviewing the planner on Monday evenings with your child
and initialing for me that you saw it and are aware of the week’s
activities. Each day, please glance at the planer to check and make
sure there are no new notes or behavior notes. The planner is also
used to check and see what that night’s homework is.
TESTS will be written or boxed in RED

 HOMEWORK will be at the bottom of
       each day in the

KEEP TRACK section and will be added
             daily.

BEHAVIOR notes and YOUR INITIALS
  should be in the BLUE box at the
        bottom of each day.
All your child’s folders are color coded to match a
specific subject to help them and me stay
organized. Here is the color system so you are
aware as you look through their backpacks.
 
RED- Communication
GREEN- Reading
YELLOW- Science & Social Studies
BLUE- Math
This year your child will have
independent reading time daily. Right
now we only have the stamina for about
10 minutes. Our goal is to be reading for
about 30 minutes by October.
During this time I will be doing 1 on 1, or
1 on 2 conferences with your children to
have more thorough personal instruction.
Auditory Learners: Hear
Auditory learners would rather listen to things being explained than read
about them. Reciting information out loud and having music in the
background may be a common study method. Other noises may
become a distraction resulting in a need for a relatively quiet place.
 
Visual Learners: See
Visual learners learn best by looking at graphics, watching a
demonstration, or reading. For them, it’s easy to look at charts and
graphs, but they may have difficulty focusing while listening to an
explanation.
 
Kinesthetic Learners: Touch
Kinesthetic learners process information best through a “hands-on”
experience. Actually doing an activity can be the easiest way for them to
learn. Sitting still while studying may be difficult, but writing things down
makes it easier to understand.
If your child is changing their dismissal I
need a note or email, or the office needs a
phone call. I cannot change your child’s
dismissal based on what they verbally
tell me.
Inside your child’s communication
binder you will find:
•Daily Schedule
•Child’s Data on graphs
•Planner
•Red Folder
Thank you to the PTA for supporting the staff and students! Wonderful things the PTA
does:
•Large purchases such as AR & Brain Pop
•Monthly Birthday Club table
•Organizes all fundraisers for material

Joining the PTA does not require a lot of responsibility and they have a table set up in
the court yard where you can join tonight and purchase any spirit merchandise you
may need.

Fall Festival
Save the date...Friday, October 12 is Fall Festival.  Staff, parent and middle and high
school volunteers will be needed to make this major event a success. 
 
Read-a-Thon
The purpose of the Read-a-Thon is to raise money for reading materials, promote
independent reading, and be part of our AR Kickoff.  PTA has sent information home.
 It will be held in the classrooms on September 7
for taking the time to attend Open House!


 I look forward to working with you and
 your child this year. It is going to be a
    wonderful year filled with exciting
            learning activities!

  • 5. It is important that your child comes to school each and every day well rested and ready to learn. Regular attendance at school is critical for your child to achieve his/her highest academic potential. Academic learning occurs all day and students who arrive late or leave early miss valuable instructional time aimed at their academic success. If your child arrives after 9:40 a.m. tardy bell, you will need to park your car and come to the front office to sign your child in for the day. If you child will be absent, you need to notify the school of the reason why your child is absent. You can call (813) 346-1488 to leave a recorded message why your child is absent from school.
  • 6. Veterans Homework Policy: Homework Policy states that a 4th Grade teacher should only give a total of 40 minutes of homework a night in all subject areas combined. We ask that students read 15-20 minutes each night as a part of their homework. I will also be sending home math practice worksheets. However, we will only be sending those home when the skills have been completely covered in class. Mrs. Maus’ additional HW info: •Reading logs will in the communication binder and checked bi weekly. •Math homework will be assigned each night a new lesson is taught. No homework the night a test was taken. •No weekend homework. : )

At the end of each month he/she will also enjoy birthday cake at a special birthday table at lunch. It is VES policy to recognize students’ birthdays in this way so that we are not interrupting instruction. Gifts, cupcakes, cakes, and other “party” items will not be allowed.
  • 11. If you would like to volunteer in the classroom, at school or on a field trip, at all this year, you must be approved by the county. I suggest that everyone fill out the application and be approved so that you don't have to worry about it later. It takes about 3 weeks to get approved, so it is almost impossible to apply at the last minute before a field trip if you want to chaperone. Please note that you must re- apply each year. It can be done on-line contact me for the link. If you are already an approved volunteer, please let me know or if you apply let me know when your approval comes through. I like to keep track of my parents who are already approved. Volunteer in our Classroom!
  • 12. Planners: minor behaviors and some notes will be written in planners. Email: weekly emails (Monday Nights) will be sent to all parents. I will also email for more detailed issues or behaviors if my schedule does not allow me to call. Newsletters: Occasionally, when many activities are happening, such as the holidays and end of the year. Web Site: Our team website can be found under the “teams” link on the school web page.
  • 13. The planners are used school wide. They are used for parent/teacher communication as well as keeping the students organized. In my classroom, the planner can be a good tool for family planning. Every Monday, when the students come in, I have them copy my planner at the front of the room into their planners. This lets them know what topics we are learning about in each subject that week, when we have a test and when we have a schedule change. It also helps to know about tests ahead of time or if your child is absent, it lets you know what they missed or will be missing that day. I suggest reviewing the planner on Monday evenings with your child and initialing for me that you saw it and are aware of the week’s activities. Each day, please glance at the planer to check and make sure there are no new notes or behavior notes. The planner is also used to check and see what that night’s homework is.
  • 14. TESTS will be written or boxed in RED HOMEWORK will be at the bottom of each day in the KEEP TRACK section and will be added daily. BEHAVIOR notes and YOUR INITIALS should be in the BLUE box at the bottom of each day.
  • 15. All your child’s folders are color coded to match a specific subject to help them and me stay organized. Here is the color system so you are aware as you look through their backpacks.   RED- Communication GREEN- Reading YELLOW- Science & Social Studies BLUE- Math
  • 16. This year your child will have independent reading time daily. Right now we only have the stamina for about 10 minutes. Our goal is to be reading for about 30 minutes by October. During this time I will be doing 1 on 1, or 1 on 2 conferences with your children to have more thorough personal instruction.
  • 17. Auditory Learners: Hear Auditory learners would rather listen to things being explained than read about them. Reciting information out loud and having music in the background may be a common study method. Other noises may become a distraction resulting in a need for a relatively quiet place.   Visual Learners: See Visual learners learn best by looking at graphics, watching a demonstration, or reading. For them, it’s easy to look at charts and graphs, but they may have difficulty focusing while listening to an explanation.   Kinesthetic Learners: Touch Kinesthetic learners process information best through a “hands-on” experience. Actually doing an activity can be the easiest way for them to learn. Sitting still while studying may be difficult, but writing things down makes it easier to understand.
  • 18. If your child is changing their dismissal I need a note or email, or the office needs a phone call. I cannot change your child’s dismissal based on what they verbally tell me.
  • 19. Inside your child’s communication binder you will find: •Daily Schedule •Child’s Data on graphs •Planner •Red Folder
