At Will Davis Elementary we are SHARP


Assignment Notebook

Please be sure to look at it everyday. You do NOT need to sign it everyday.

wednesday folder
Wednesday Folder

Please sign the Wednesday Folder every week. This folder contains graded papers, school flyers, and the Super Sharp chart.

Super Sharp Chart

This chart gives you an update every Wednesday regarding your students behavior and homework. Please sign this chart every week and let us know if you have any question regarding behavior and/or homework.

These items must be signed and returned by Thursday or students will have a homework consequence.


Red Folder:

This is the homework folder. This is where all homework is kept until it is ready to turn in. The reading log is also located in the red folder.


Please send a note with your student or call the office if the student has been absent.

We are only able to gather missed assignments after school.

You may look on the website to get the homework assignments.

class rules
Class Rules
  • Come to class prepared
  • Speakat appropriate times
  • Follow directions the first time they are given
  • Respect others
  • Help create a positive and safe working atmosphere
  • Be honest
if a student breaks a rule
If a student breaks a rule:

First Time: Verbal Warning

Second Time: Five minutes off of recess

Third Time: Ten minutes off of recess

Fourth Time: Miss entire recess/self-correction letter

Dishonesty and rudeness will result in a double consequence.

The use of inappropriate language, defiance, and physical aggression will result in an immediate referral to the office.

reward system
Reward System

Our students have the opportunity to earn stickers everyday. Stickers may be used to “buy” privileges.

Students who have three marks or less each months will receive four lap passes.

grading policy

We encourage all of our students to turn in assignments on time. The following policy is for late assignments NOT due to absences.

Teachers may deduct 10 points off each day an assignment is late.

One weekly reminder will be given for late work.

Any assignment more that a week late will be graded as a 50. If no assignment is received a zero will be entered in the gradebook.

Assignments/tests with a grade less than 70 may be corrected in class for a maximum grade of 70.

Please check the Wednesday folder for all graded papers and monitor your students grades on-line. If you notice anything or have a concern/question please let us know.

Our grading policy is in line with Austin ISD policy and has been approved by our administrators.

Please go to the Parent Cloud to monitor your student’s grades.
