When Should I Keep My Child
Home From School?
STEM in the classroom with our BeeBot robotics program!
BE READY TO LEARN.......
Having your child start school on time each day will help ensure their academic success. Each day starts with spiral review helping to make sure every child has multiple opportunities to master learned concepts. If your child is not in the classroom, they miss this vital learning time!
Set that alarm clock 15 minutes earlier so you can make sure your child is up and dressed, has eaten, and is at school by 8:00 and ready to learn!
Learning About Common Core Standards
Student Planners go home every Thursday to be signed by a parent. Important updates to information will be listed in the planner when the need arises. Students need to return their signed planner each Friday. Students will only be given ONE Student Planner a year so please be careful with them!
Homework is no longer mandatory. Work pages will go home nightly (Monday through Thursday) for additional practice and we will go over completed pages the next day in class. By reviewing these pages you can see if they are understanding concepts taught in class. This allows you to understand what your child is learning in school and assess how they are doing as they work on mastering 2nd Grade standards. If your child is not completing class work, then it will go home as homework and must be returned the next day. Field trip privileges are predicated on consistent classwork completion. Help your child learn good study habits from the start! Thank you.
Please make sure you have checked the District Policy if you wish to help in the classroom or on a field trip. Thank you!
