ABOUT ME

PROCEDURES
 
HOMEWORK
Students are expected to complete a math hw sheet that will be assigned on Monday and completed and turned in Friday morning. I give the hw in advance because I understand that life happens and they students are involved in extracurricular activities so this method gives them the opportunity to work ahead. HW will be a review of the previous items learned the week before. HW is designed so that you as the parent have a current idea of the content that your child is understanding or struggling with in class. Agenda should be signed nightly by parents.
 
BIRTHDAYS / TREATS
We love to celebrate birthdays with our class family!  If you choose to send something in with your child, we will celebrate during our lunch period at 12:25pm.  We have 22 students in our class this year and 2 teachers :)!
 
HOW PARENTS CAN HELP
- Review papers that come home with your child.  This is a wonderful opportunity for you to see what your child is doing in class as well as celebrate or provide support, as needed.
-Sign agendas and look over HW!
