Tracking Student Progress/Grades
This year you will have access to our online grading system. Grades will be posted in a
timely manner for you to have up to date data on your child’s progress. More
information will be coming regarding the log on procedures and access codes for you and
Students are required to bring the following items to class every day:
3 Sharpened Pencils (mechanical is acceptable in room 204)
I have one set of the Student Reference Books (SRB) in the classroom for daily use.
Your child has been issued a Student Reference Book (SRB) to keep at home during the
school year. Please use it to assist with assignments. The homework pages will indicate
which pages will be helpful (ex: SRB 135). These textbooks are not part of the school
fees and will be due back in May. Please keep the book in a treasured location to keep it
safe and accessible. The replacement cost for damaged/lost Student Reference Books
was $24.66 last year.
Students are expected to have all homework assignments completed on time. They are
worth 5 points each! Any assignment not completed for teacher viewing at the beginning
of class will be considered late. Late assignments will be accepted the following day for
partial credit (3 points). After that, no credit will be given. Incomplete assignments will
not receive credit. After 3 missing/late assignments, students will serve a lunch detention
(loss of recess) for each missing/late assignment. This policy will renew each trimester.
When an assignment is late or incomplete, you will be notified by a PAST DUE stamp in
It is the student’s responsibility to check and retrieve information from the Absence
Folder. Students have 2 days to get the assignment in without penalty. If a student is
absent on a day an assignment was due, it must be turned in on the day he/she returns.
Place the assignment in the appropriate Turn-In Tray with the word “ABSENT” written
on the top and the date the student was out of class. If a student is absent on the day a
test is given, he/she will be expected to take the test when he/she returns.
1. Enter the class quietly and go directly to your seat.
2. Place homework in the top corner of desk and copy the “Binder Reminder” into your
3. Demonstrate excellence by following procedures and directions and doing your best.
4. Respect the teacher’s right to teach.
5. Respect the right of students to learn.
-Warning (verbal redirection)
-Refocus (student completes form). Three refocus forms during one math period will
result in parent notification and assignment of a morning detention.
-Actions that present a physical threat or repeatedly prevent the instructor from
teaching, or the class from working, will result in an Office Referral.
Everyday Math Program
This is a spiral curriculum which addresses topics/skills several times before mastery is
expected. Each class session will begin with a Math Message which will indicate what
students are to begin working on. While students are working independently, I will check
for homework completion. Then we will review portions of the homework assignment.
Students are expected to actively participate in order to gain the full benefit of the lesson.
