Communication Folder

    Your new Third Grader will have a Communication Folder, which I hope will ensure an on going link of communication between home and school.  It is my desire for your child to use this folder all year.  This folder should travel from school to home and home to school everyday of the week. 

    Graded work, and class work to be completed will be sent home daily in your child’s Communication Folder.  Please take a little time each evening to review your child’s folder. 

    All graded work, except for tests, with a grade of a “D” or lower may be corrected and returned for an improved grade for no higher than a “C”.  I strongly believe that all my students should be able to earn a “C” or better in my class if they practice at home, correct work, and turn in all their assignments. Looking over your child’s schoolwork gives you an opportunity to learn what is happening at school and to spend quality time with your child. 

    This Communication Folder is a valuable tool, which will enable us to communicate on a daily basis.  However, if you send a note to school in the folder it will be your child’s responsibility to get the note out of the folder and turn it into me.  I do not go through individual folders.  It is your child’s responsibility to remove all returned papers from the folder as well. 

    Please help your child be responsible for keeping track of this folder.  These Communication Folders are expensive.  I can only provide your child with one folder for the year.  If your child loses his/her folder you can purchase a new one from me for $1.00 or provide your own folder. 

    Going over schoolwork with your child demonstrates that you think school is important and that you value your child’s efforts at school.  I greatly appreciate your help in sending your child to school with this folder everyday.  This folder is a great asset to our communication and your child’s organization.

Daily Class Work, Homework, and Missed Assignments
    It is important that your child be responsible for finishing class work on time.  I will do everything possible to help your child be successful in the classroom, however; it is ultimately your child’s responsibility to complete all assignments.  

Daily Class Work

  1. Unfinished daily work will become homework and is due the following day.
  2. It’s the student’s responsibility to know daily assignments and due dates.
  3. Daily work not returned the following day is considered late.
  4. Late assignments are lowered one grade and will only be accepted by the end of the week.

Homework
    Developing good study habits is an important element in your child’s learning process.  Daily “Homework” study time is required to be a successful student.  Occasionally additional homework time will be required for lengthy written projects, but due dates will be noted for adequate time for completion.  On a regular basis, your child will not have additional homework unless he/she is completing his/her daily classroom work because it wasn’t completed in class. 


Nightly Routine Homework should be

  1. Any unfinished daily class work
  2. 30 minutes of AR reading
  3. Study spelling words and spelling paragraph
  4. Memorize math facts: (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

Missed Assignments or Absences

Your child is responsible for making up all missed assignments; unless excused. Missed assignments will affect report card grades. Your child is to ASK FOR MISSED WORK  upon his/her return to school. Students have the same number of days they are absent to make up missed assignments
