  • Just a few things you may need to know:
  • I am sending home the last science  buddy this week and it is not due till end of May.
  • Testing will occur the first week of May.  Please make sure your child is on time to school.  There is only a small window to do make up tests.
  • Our family fun night is scheduled for April 28th from 5-8 p.m. at school.  I have sent home a note because my homeroom and Ms. Wilkinson's homeroom is responsible for the sports theme basket.  Please contribute    what you can so the silent auction goes well, all proceeds go to our school.  We really need some sports items for this basket!!!!!
  • Math test on Thursday that will cover metric units, this is primarily a memorization test.  Some will have to retake the customary units because of poor grades.  Note went home to those parents whose children have to retake.
  • We continue to work on the rocks/minerals and solar system unit. 
  • Social Studies test Thursday on the spellings of the Midwest states and capitals.
  • Remember my non duty days are Monday, Thursday, and Friday, your child is welcome to come up and get extra help if he/she has a pass.
  • We are having quite a few absences, when this happens your child is given missing work but it is up to him or her to turn that work in.  If there is no absence note then by St. Tammany guidelines tests and graded work does not have to be accepted.
  • The morning bell rings at 7:30.  After then children are considered tardy and must check in with office.  Each child has been given a class pass.  Children can use these to come upstairs on my non duty days ( Monday, Thursday and Friday) to study, get help, find something, complete an assignment.  But they must have the passes to show a duty teacher in order to come upstairs.
  • I do allow clear water bottles in class.  Ms. Wilkinson and I have had water bottles spill and colored liquids come spilling out.  This is not allowed so if your child brings a clear bottle that is acceptable but if it is not clear your child will not be allowed to use it.
  • Within the classroom children may wear blue or white jackets or sweaters.
  •   I have set up with the children a homework and notes folder that children will put those things in, you can check daily for any notes I send home as well as homework sheets, if any.  Your child has been issued a planner in which they write homework assignments. Please check that nightly and initial it after your child has done his/her homework.  I will assume that a no signature means they did not do the work.

  •  Newsletters have current test days and subjects listed.
  • All tests are listed in planners and I do this on a Monday so that you can see what is upcoming.  If you see finished written before an assignment like finish page 2, that means it was classwork and your child did not finish it in class.
  • Lastly, grades in JPAMS are up to date.  If you see an X in JPAMS that means your child did not turn it in or do it.  That translates to an F.
  • Field trip is Friday, we do not need any help supervising at the movie, but if you want to meet us a Koop Drive for lunch that is fine.  I am not sure what time we will be there probably around noon.
