Welcome to Mrs. Sarhan's Class

  1. 1. Welcome to Mrs. Sarhan’s Class A Parent’s Guide to Second Grade
  2. 2. Drop-off/Pick-up School Hours: 8:00-3:15 Latchkey: 3:30 •Have your child is in the classroom by 8:00 a.m., no later than 8:15 a.m., •Picked up by your child by 3:15 p.m., no sooner. • Anyone entering the classroom after 8:30 will be marked tardy (4 tardies = 1 absence). •Please pick up your child by 3:15 p.m. •Your child will be sent to Latchkey at 3:30 p.m. and you will be charged a $5.00 drop-in fee. If for some reason another person is picking up your child other than the person on your emergency card, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE.
  3. 3. Attendance Policy In order for your child to succeed in second grade he/she must be present. •PLEASE make sure that your child is in school daily. When children miss a few days of school, they get behind in the class, become confused and often lose the motivation to excel. We want to make sure that all students are getting the education they deserve. •If your child is going to be late, please contact the office so we know to expect them. •School begins at 8:15 a.m. and your child will begin morning work promptly. We don’t want to distract the other second graders from their learning, so please make sure that your child is here and on time so they are ready for a great learning day!
  4. 4. ABT Elementary Rules Since my goal as well as that of ABT Elementary is to create a safe, academic, positive learning environment, it is crucial that we understand the behavior guidelines. Please go over these with your child as we will do in the class during the first two weeks of school. Each student must: *Be responsible *Be respectful *Be safe *Be trustworthy *Do your personal best *Be honest These guidelines are to help your child make good choices about their behavior so they are successful in their learning.
  5. 5. Classroom Rules Here are some guidelines that we follow at ABT Elementary. Please go over these with your child BEFORE school. We will go over these rules as well as make our own for our class. They should be aware of the rules they are going to follow: •Raise your hand to speak or if you need to get out of your seat. •Keep hands and feet to yourself. •Follow the directions the first time they are given. •Be kind and be respectful. •Use appropriate language.
  6. 6. Classroom Consequences When your child chooses not to behave appropriately he/she will face the following consequences: • Verbal Warning and Reminder of Class Rules • No recess or free time • Lunch Detention • Parent notification • In-School Suspension- Student is excluded from: Desk Unit (sits alone) Lunch Recess Class Recreation &Fun Activities The classroom teacher determines the length of In-School Suspension. Student needs to demonstrate a change of attitude, willingness to adhere to the class procedures and rules, respect for staff & class, and a willingness to cooperate with others. These rules must be followed at all times. Defiance of these rules will not be tolerated. NO CHILD WILL BE ALLOWED TO STOP ANOTHER CHILD FROM LEARNING.
  7. 7. Classroom Rewards With every outcome there should be motivation for students to perform their best. Students will receive the following if our classroom follows the rules/guidelines: •A happy teacher and happy students. •Verbal praise •Free time •Treats •Movie Day •Good Behavior Party •And much, much more!
  8. 8. Behavior Party In order to maximize learning, students are encouraged to be on their best behavior daily. We use a card system and a behavior ladder to ensure that parents and students are aware of the child’s daily behavior. Every month our class has a party celebrating the student’s monthly behavior. Our parties are usually held on the last Thursday or Friday of every calendar month. Rewards will be given to students according to their behavior that month. Students who do not behave for the majority of the month will not receive any rewards. They may also be excluded from the activities during the behavior party. Please send treats with your child for the behavior party. Be sure to send treats enough for 30 students.
  9. 9. School Supplies: Please send the following supplies to school. The only items that need to be labeled with your child’s name are the back pack, and pencil pouch. Check with your child during the year to make sure they still have the supplies they need. We will put their extra supplies in a file marked with their name so that they may stock up as needed. •Crayons (No more than 24) •3 dozen pencils, sharpened •5 glue sticks •Scissors (labeled with name) •3 large erasers •1 box of markers •2 large boxes of tissue •Backpack (labeled with name) •1 or 2 pencil pouches (labeled with name, no boxes please) •3 spiral notebooks
  10. 10. Communication Education is a partnership between home and school. I value parent involvement at every level and encourage you to partner with me. In order for this partnership to be effective, we need to be able to communicate. Please feel free to call, write a note, or e-mail me if you have concerns or questions about your child’s education. I am always available to schedule a conference to discuss any issue or concern you have regarding your child. I speak Arabic and English. Our school also has Spanish speaking staff members in case you may need a translator. The Academy for Business and Technology Elementary School Phone: (313) 581-2223 E-mail: akkayed@gmail.com
