Miss Chrisman’s Sea of Learning Room 11. Welcome parents Please take time to complete the survey in the back of the room and feel free to begin your paperwork. . A little bit about me….
Please take time to complete the survey in the back of the room and feel free to begin your paperwork.
This is my fifth year at Potowmack Elementary. At school I choreograph the 5th grade musical and put together the yearbook.
I graduated from Potomac Falls High School and then Radford University.
I have a younger sister, Brooke. I love spending time with my two dogs JAC and Buckeye.
First of all I ask that everyone follow the school rules, but I have a few rules to follow while in the classroom:
as turning in homework, being prepared, soaring, helping
others, and being on task. Students can lose points for not
having homework, not being on task, showing disrespect, and
talking out of turn.
At the end of the month I will tell them their total points and
they will be able to shop in the treasure box for lunch bunch,
a homework pass, extra computer time, extra IPad time,
pencils and erasers.
rule more than twice they will lose their
star for the day and a dojo point. A note
will be sent home indicating why they
lost their star.
When the class receives a good report during specials, gets green in the cafeteria, or is SOARing in the hallway I will give them a positive point. The class will receive rewards when they reach certain points.
25 – homework pass
50 – extra recess
75 – lunch bunch
100 – special snack
Eagle tickets can be earned by the entire class or for individual students. Students earn eagle tickets by SOARing in the classroom, hallway, and cafeteria.
Each nine weeks we will set a goal for the amount of tickets we want to earn. If we reach our goal, then they will receive a reward.
In the past rewards have been game day, hot chocolate party, hat day, and lunch in the garden.
- Homework will be given on a regular basis and is to be turned in on time.
- A typical night of homework includes reading for 20 minutes, word study, math, and content.
- Homework should take no longer than an hour.
Fun Friday is 15 extra minutes of recess. To earn Fun Friday students must:
- Have 3 out of 5 stars (good behavior)
- Turned in all homework and classwork on time or have no more than two late assignments.
Students who don’t earn Fun Friday will go to study hall to finish their late or incomplete work.
- There will be daily class work. Not all class work will be taken up for a grade.
- All graded work (class work, tests, and check up’s) and homework will be returned on Friday afternoon in their Friday folder’s, which should be returned on Monday.
- Flyers and other important letters, and order forms will also be in their Friday folder.
- I do not check the folders when they come back on Monday, so it is the student’s responsibility to turn in any important papers and/or money.
All social studies and science tests should be put in their SOL binder, which will be used to review and study for the SOL’s in May. The binder can stay at home.
I recommend keeping all flashcards and study guides as well.

We will be having snack time. Due to our schedule we have to have a working snack. If your child wishes to bring snack, please send something healthy that can be eaten quickly that does not require a spoon or fork. Please keep in mind that this is a nut free classroom, so do not send in anything that has nuts or peanut butter.
If your child earns lunch bunch
please do not pack peanut
products for that day.
