*NEW* Announcements

End of Year Celebration

We will be having our end of the year pizza (and frozen custard) party this Friday, June 1. Students will have pizza during their normal lunch time, so no need no send a lunch. Please make sure they still have something to drink that day!

Field Day Shirts

Please send a white t-shirt in by Wednesday, May 16, to be decorated for field day. The student's name should be printed somewhere on the shirt/tag or a bag. Students can also bring in fabric markers or sharpies to decorate the shirts and a piece of cardboard to lay the shirt down on (we will be decorating on Monday, May 21).

Approved Snack List

 

Due to severe allergies on our floor, please be mindful if you are sending in treats for birthdays or holiday parties. If you are planning on a treat other than the ones listed, please notify me in advance and I will check if it is safe to bring in. Thank you for your cooperation!

 

PowerSchool Grades


Grades will be posted on PowerSchool weekly. Please make sure to check your child's grades periodically, as PowerSchool and the teacher pages are our main source of communication with parents on assignments.


My grades are point-based rather than percentage-based, so I do not use exact percentages when weighing my grades. However, I do plan assignments so homework/classwork will be slightly less than half the final grade, and tests/quizzes will be slightly more than half.


Late Assignments - I strongly believe in "better late than never," so please encourage your child to complete and hand in any assignments that are missing (even if it's been a while). Partial credit will be accepted, which is always better than a zero when calculating final averages.
