FYI: Please make sure you are checking your child's planner daily. They should be putting a check mark by the assignments they completed. They should either circle or highlight the assignments that are homework. Planners are free this year!!! If your child is not filling out their planner, please contact me immediately. Students may bring a water bottle to my class. However, they need to be hard, reusable water bottles. We had trouble last year with kids flipping plastic/disposable bottles and crunching them during class. If your child needs to leave school during the day, they need to bring a note to the Welcome Center before school starts. They will be issued a pass. They need to show the pass to the teacher at the beginning of the hour that they will need to leave. Please do not contact me with information that needs to get to your child that day. Example: If your child will suddenly get picked up instead of taking the bus. I don't have your child all day, and I don't always check my email during the school day. Please contact the Welcome Center. They will make sure a note gets to your child. If your child is absent two or more days, please contact the Welcome Center to pick-up homework. They will contact your child's teachers for the work and it will be waiting in the Welcome Center at the end of the day for parent pick-up. All students should be reading 20 minutes a night. They are required to read 15 books this semester. We visit the HMS Library every week. I also have many books in my classroom for students to choose at their reading level! No toys are allowed at school. That includes fidgits, unless a student has a medical reason that requires them to have one during the school day. They are a distraction and often get broken/lost during the day! Please read the information in your child's planner about cell phone usage, dress code, appropriate behavior. We will go through all of this information with your child at the beginning of the school year. If you have questions, feel free to email me! Julie
