We love to celebrate each child's achievements throughout the year, Brag Tags are badges that your child can earn for awesome work and behavior in our classroom. Each Brag tag earned, will be added to your child’s chain. Brag Tag chains can be worn each Friday as, a way to “brag” about our successes. The kids love collecting them throughout the year! It is also a great role model for the other students in our school.
In 3rd grade, kids will receive grades based on the following scale:
F: below 60%
Progress Reports and Report Cards will be sent home 3 times a year to keep you up to date on your child's progress. Grades will be taken often and each graded assignment will be sent home in the folder every Thursday. All other assignments will be sent home daily. When you receive a BLUE THURSDAY FOLDER, please review the contents with your child to see their struggles and successes. Please empty the folder, sign the parent signature sheet, and return the folder to school on Friday. It is important that you sign the signature sheet on the back of the Thursday folder in order for us to know that you are aware of your child's weekly progress. If you have any questions please feel free to call, e-mail or send a note!
Having your child in the classroom daily is the key to success. Please make sure your child arrives on time each day as they begin their morning work promptly upon their arrival. The tardy bell is 8:00 for this school year. If your child is absent from school, please send a note within two days of your child’s return. Please note that certain absences are deemed excused, and others are unexcused. These are outlined in the handbook. Also, your child must be at school until 11:30 to be considered present. If the child is checked out before then, he or she is marked absent. Also, there is no early check out past 2:15.
