Back to School

Standards have changed and we are transitioning into them
Help develop critical thinkers
Emphasis quality vs. quanity (depth vs. breadth)
Emphasis on collaboration between students
First and Second Quarters

Homework Policy

Common Core Shift
Your child will receive homework Monday through Thursday nights. He/she should spend about one hour per night on homework. I typically assign a reading log, notebook writing, and math. The assignments are turned in each morning for grading. If the homework is incomplete, then your child will stay in during recess to make up the work.

Homework is posted in the classroom and on my school web page on a daily basis.

Third and Fourth Quarters
Good behavior is rewarded with tickets that can be saved up for privileges and prizes!

The class earns marbles for compliments, which can be used for a class celebration when it's full!!

If a child breaks a rule:
1st offense-warning
2nd offense-no recess
3rd offense-parents notified
4th or frequent offenses-sent to Mr. Herman or Mr. Cathcart
Grading Policy
Absences and Vacations
Homework and classwork missed during the absence is the student's responsibility.
All missed assignments will be placed in a folder on the student's desk.
Make up work is due by the end of the week after her/his return to school.
We will use the Journeys program, novels, and non-fiction articles to meet the skills necessary for sixth grade. For each lesson of study the students will be exposed to grade level vocabulary and comprehension strategies. The students will be tested on these skills using multiple-choice and open-ended assessments.
