Classroom Community
Our classroom is a community. In our community, we have rules to help us get along with each other.
Our class rules are:
Be respectful and responsible.
Be organized and follow directions.
Be on time.
Be prepared.
I will assign a daily reading assignment about 30 minutes of homework every night. This will qualify you for a weekly prize drawing.
Your homework packet is due on Friday, or at the end of the week.
Your parents/care provider will be notified of your weekly progress. If you have problems contact me at: 678-852-0815.
School starts at 9:05 A.M.
If you aren’t in the classroom by the time the second bell rings, please check in at the school office before coming to class.
If you are tardy four times, the school will contact your parents.
Field Trips
Reading for enjoyment?
We will take a walking field trip to Barnes and Nobles Book store to purchase books as part of our reading units.
