Homework assignments and policies

Homework Assignments and Policies

We have a school wide homework policy. It states that fifth graders need to work for 50 minutes each night on homework. Most homework is unfinished schoolwork. Most assignments are due the next day unless specified otherwise. Students are told everyday what is due and when. It is the student’s responsibility to complete their work on time and turn it in.

Hopefully you have been seeing your child’s planner come home each night. Since we are preparing your child for middle school, we will not be checking each individual planner. The student is to write any homework/class work that is due.

Classroom discipline

Classroom Discipline

  • All students deserve the right to a classroom environment that is managed in such a way as to maximize learning and minimize distractions, or impediments, to studying and learning.

  • All students have the responsibility to follow class rules that make it possible to get along with each other and allow teaching and learning to proceed throughout the year.

  • The classroom rule is as follows: You May Not Interfere with the Learning of Yourself or Others

  • Every student has a bad day once in awhile. For that reason, we start with a clean slate everyday.

  • If any behavior becomes a problem, we will work with you and your student to solve this conflict.
