CLASS POLICIES – FIFTH GRADE 5-307

            Welcome Back!  I am looking forward to working with your children for the 2019-2020 school year.  This is an important year for your children.  I believe they will excel and it will benefit them for the NY State Exams in sixth grade.   It is important that every child is respectful towards themselves, others, and property.  All students are to be responsible for their work and for asking for help when needed.  Students must also be prepared every day for each of their classes.  They must have all supplies, pens, pencils, independent reading book, etc. everyday in school.

BOOKS:  All workbooks must be covered with clear contact.  All texts must be covered with a book sox.

NOTEBOOKS: Each child must have the correct notebook for each subject everyday in school.  Notebooks are for note taking as well as other assignments.  They will be checked at least once per-trimester to assure the correct note taking is being done in each book.

BASIC SUPPLIES:  Students are to come to school with at least 2 sharpened pencils, 2 pens, a highlighter, and a red/green pen.  Each student is to have their TI-34 calculator with them in school everyday.    

FOLDERS: Students have a two-pocket folder for all subjects to keep their tests and quizzes.  Tests will be put in the folder weekly to be signed, corrected, and returned.  They also have a two-pocket folder as their homework folder which will be our means of communicating. 

TESTS/QUIZZES:  Tests and quizzes must be signed, corrected, and returned within two days.  They will be returned each week.  ALL TESTS MUST REMAIN IN THE FOLDER.

LUNCH:  Lunch begins at 11:25.  I ask that each child arrive to school with their lunch rather than picking it up at the office.  This will allow each student to enjoy their full lunch period. 

HOMEWORK:  All assignments will be copied into their homework planner on a daily basis.  The homework will also be shown on the school website at holyangelsbayridge.org, on the fifth grade page.  The other subjects, such as Math, ELA, Science and SS will be on the homeroom teachers page of that specific subject.  If a child does not complete his/her homework, the child must sign the No Homework Book.  This will affect their homework grade. 

ABSENCES:  Parents must call the office if their child is going to be absent.  When the child returns to school, please send an email or a note to school for their absence. Please write a note explaining any absence for a full or half day.  They are responsible for any missing classwork or homework.

LATENESS:  It is important for each student to arrive on time everyday.  The doors open at 7:50 AM.

APPOINTMENTS:  Please write me a note if you need and appointment and I will notify you as to the day and time.  If the appointment cannot be kept, please call the school office to cancel.

CLASSROOM SUPPLIES:  We are always in need of tissues, baby wipes, Clorox wipes, paper towels, and Purell.  After Christmas break, these supplies will need to be replenished.  Please send them in the first week after the break.

TEACHER CONTACT:  If you need to reach me, please send me a note with your child, leave a message at the office, or you can now email me on the school website at MValvano@holyangelsbayrigde.org.  I will return a note, email, or give a call back within 24 hours.

BATHROOM/NURSE:  It is important that I know where all my students are at all times.  The nurse is to be used only if necessary.  The bathroom is to be used when needed in the morning and as a class after lunch.  Students are to go to the bathroom and quickly return to the classroom.  Students will not be permitted to use the bathroom (except for an emergency), during deparmental classes.  This is to be sure they do not miss an important lesson.

Monday’s:  Computer Coding; Tuesday’s:  Art; Wednesday’s:  Music; Thursday’s:  Spanish and Chorus; Friday’s:  Gym and Dance
