In our classroom, we have three main rules: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe. As a whole class, we will come up with two-three “sub” rules that will fit under each. For example, under ‘Be Respectful,’ we may decide that ‘Don’t talk when someone else is talking’ would be a good fit. If these rules are broken, there will be consequences. There will be one warning. If it happens a second time, the child will have to take a break. If it happens a third time, the child will be sent to the principals office and parents will be called. I expect that each child will follow these rules we will create together. I understand that we all have bad days sometimes and that’s okay. I will do my best to work through these issues with the child as I want my classroom to be an environment where all children feel safe and welcomed.
Students may celebrate their birthday by bringing in something small to share with classmates. If you choose to do this, below are some guidelines:
*Make it mini size if possible
*Treats must be store bought. Prepackaged treats such as fruit snacks or Little Debbie’s are strongly recommended.
*Please try and contact me (email, call, write a note) to let me know when you would like to bring the treats. We have students with birthdays in the same month, therefore I would like to try and help so everyone gets their deserved time.
*Please do not have your child bring birthday party invitations to school unless the whole class is invited. It is not fun to feel left out.
*I am not allowed to pass out a class list or contact information.
