Communication: Communication is so important! I will be sending out weekly emails with important information, dates, etc. Attached to the weekly emails will be our classroom newsletter which will include; upcoming events, our high frequency words, and what we are learning. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to email me, call me, or send me a note in your child's take home folder.
Homework: Homework will consist of weekly spelling words or patterns, nightly reading, and Dreambox math practice. Homework is meant to take no more than 15-20 minutes a night. If homework is becoming a challenge please feel free to contact me.
Behavior: Sunset Ridge is a PBIS school. We use HAWK Bucks to reinforce positive behaviors (S-Safety O-Ownership A-Achievement R-Respect). In addition to the HAWK Bucks, we use a colored clip chart where each day every student starts on green. Students have an opportunity to clip up for positive behaviors as well as clip down if neccessary. If a student clips down, they always have an opportunity to clip back up. At the end of each day, students will fill in the color they ended the day on. They will do this on their behavior calendar that will always be kept in their take home folder.
