Welcome Back Letter

Dear Parents/Guardians,

     We are very excited to be starting our 2019-2020 school year and working with the students. Together we will settle into a routine with each child having reminders and assistance readily available. We would like you to familiarize yourself with some of the things that you will see coming home with your children.

HOMEWORK – If homework is not completed, they will have to miss recess until the assignment is done.

PLANNERS – all homework assignments and upcoming events are written in their planner. Please sign nightly to recognize you have seen the planner.

BEHAVIOR CHART – Each night, the students will be bringing home their behavior chart to be signed and brought back the following morning. This is considered part of their homework. They will miss ten minutes of recess for not bringing their behavior chart back signed.

Other information:

Recess log – At the end of each month, the students will bring home the recess log from the entire month. The recess log documents each time your child lost recess from the ES classroom. This is to be signed and returned.

Remind – We will using the remind app to send text messages to help with reminders. Please sign up using the attached paper to help us stay in contact.

Sign and return assessments – When your student scores below a 70% on a graded assessment, it is will be stamped with a sign and return. This is considered homework.

Many behavior intervention plans are in place to help your child be successful. Throughout the school day, they will be earning and losing tickets and/or chips. The tickets and chips are turned in weekly for prizes as an incentive to engage in appropriate behaviors, complete assignments and make meaningful progress in the curriculum.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. We are going to have a great year!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Willard, Intermediate E.S. Teacher                                              Mrs. Conklin, Intermediate E.S. Para
