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; star words, upcoming events, and what we are learning and focusing on. I will also be utuilizing the app Class Dojo. I will send out quick reminders through this and you may send me messages as well. Class Dojo and email will be the quickest way to get ahold of me. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to message me via class dojo, email me, call me, or send me a note.
Homework: We will have a weekly homework calendar that will be sent home in your child's take home folder. Homework will only be Monday-Thursday and is expected to be turned in the next day. Along with the homework calendar, please read 20 minutes with your child each night. Also, homework is meant to take no more than 15-20 minutes. 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. At the end of each day, on their weekly homework page I will circle the color they ended the day on (in take home folder).
