Each student will receive an agenda planner. Each day, the students will be responsible for writing down any assignment they need to complete at home. We are asking that parents/guardians check the student’s assignment for accuracy as well as completion at the end of each school day. In addition, we request that you sign the agenda every night. As a rule, homework is assigned Monday through Thursday. The teacher will use the agenda as a means of keeping in touch with parents about events of the day.
It is the student’s responsibility to request missed work from his/her teacher upon returning from an absence. Per district policy, make up work will not be given until after the 3rd day of absence. Students are given 1 day for each for day absent to make up the work.
Each student should have a green take home folder that will be taken home each evening with any homework. On Thursday they will receive important notices and graded papers. Parents are asked to read over the important information each Thursday.
It is essential that ongoing communication between parent and teacher take place to ensure your child’s success this year.
Progress reports will be distributed at the midpoint of each 9 week grading period.
Report cards will be sent home at the end of each nine weeks. Report card envelopes should be signed and returned to school the following day.
Fourth grade students are required to follow the district wide Citizenship and CharacterTraits (http://www.pisd.edu/about.us/mission.goals/index.shtml) and school-wide ROARS Program (Respect, On-Task, Active Learning, Responsibility, Safety).
If school rules are not followed, a student will practice the desired behavior as well as conference with the teacher. A plan of action will also be developed by the student.
All students receive positive reinforcement and encouragement throughout the school day. Students will also receive “Bobcat Bucks”, coupons which can be redeemed for various prizes and rewards on a weekly basis.
