ABSENCE
If your child is absent from school, it is a necessity that a note be sent in on the day of his/her return. The note should explain the reason for the absence and the date(s). If your child is absent for more than 3 consecutive days, a doctor's note is required. If your child needs to leave school early for any reason or leave for a short period of time during the day, please send in a note.

Electronics
If it is necessary for your child to have a cell phone for after school contact, it must be OFF and placed in the bin in my classroom at the beginning of each day.
Each student is responsible for obtaining their phone at dismissal.


Homework
Your child will have homework Monday-Thursday.

HELP
Academically:I also stay after school every Wednesday and Thursday until 3:30, for any student who needs help in any subject. All they have to do is stay!
Socially
I have told your children that any unwanted or disruptive behavior towards them will not be tolerated. I cannot help the situation if they do not tell me. Please encourage your children , as I also encourage you, to come to me first with a problem that requires "telling", where someone is hurt, feelings or physical. I discourage "tattling", just to get someone in trouble. I will then contact the disciplinarian and/or principal if needed.

Incentives
There will be a lot of incentives for your child to do well this year, while making learning fun at the same time.

Just try it!
In Mrs. Aaron's classes we try to promote an atmosphere of safety. I am not afraid to make mistakes, and I want my students to feel the same. It's ok to make a mistake and no one is perfect. So even if a student were struggling, I would still like them to just try it.
Kindness
There is a ZERO tolerance for bullying in our classroom. We will spend a majority of the first few weeks of school doing team-building activities as a classroom. Students are expected to be kind to each other in our classroom and outside of our classroom.

Make up work
Your child will have one day to complete ALL missed work and show it to me.

If you child was absent consecutive days in a row their work is due the day they return. Please contact me (email or call the office) no later than 12 o'clock to have their work in the office for pick up or sent home with another student/sibling.

If there was a test on the day your child was absent they MUST be prepared to take that test on the day they return.
Notes from home
There is a bin for students to place all communication that is to go to the office or to me. It is their responsibility to check their folder in the morning and place items in the basket.
