Welcome to 3rd Grade!One factor that often determines a child’s school success is good study habits. All assignments should be kept in the homework folder at all times, and the red folder should travel to and from school each day so your child is always prepared. It would be extremely helpful if you would check your child’s folder each night to make sure it is organized and that homework is coming home and being returned. You can check what the homework assignments are in your child’s planner.
I will be using the planner in the classroom as a method of keeping track of students’ homework. Students will copy the assignments and gather all materials needed to complete the work each afternoon before leaving for the day. I would appreciate your help in checking students’ planners and signing them at the end of the week. You may also want to initial it daily.Homework is an important part of academic success. It is my promise to you that I will not assign any work that is simply "busy work." All homework will be either practice of introduced skills or an extension of what we are learning in class. Some homework will be graded by the students with a red pen and sometimes included as part of their overall grade in the class/subject.
Homework is generally due the following day unless otherwise specified. In case of an absence, it is the responsibility of the student to obtain missed work from the teacher, another student, or by checking the large wall planner. Students will have one day for each day of absence to complete and return the work.
We also offer Enrichment activities each week for those who have all assignments complete all work on time or Study Hall for those who need to complete any missing assignments.
Students are expected to practice and implement our school motto: Safety, Honesty, Kindness, and Respect for all. Each student will be held responsible for understanding the 3 R’s: Respect, Rights, and Responsibility and where the following class rules fit.
1. Listen carefully and raise your hand to speak.
2. Follow directions.
3. Complete all work neatly and on time.
4. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
5. Come to school prepared to work at learningI appreciate the hard work you do with your child and encourage you to call, e-mail, or write notes if there is anything I need to know. You may reach me at school 473-4289 or email: email@example.com. We will ALL be working hard this year on many exciting learning experiences. I look forward to an exciting year.
