Students are expected to follow the class and school rules.
Students are expected to complete homework assignments and have the homework assignment pad signed by a parent each night.
Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday and occasionally on a weekend.
Spelling includes a unit of words each week with a spelling test on Friday. Every 6th unit is a review of previous strategies and there are no new words in a review week.

Other important info...
Students are welcome to celebrate their birthdays, however no food treats due to the district food policy.
Class Trips - We will have an in-house field trip for our Rocks and Minerals unit and a trip to a New Haven Symphony performance has been scheduled for later in the year. More info will come regarding any other field trips.
If your child is absent please report the absence to the office. A folder of missed work will be kept and you can request it to be sent home with a friend or sibling or your child can get the work when they return to school.
If there are any changes to the dismissal routine for your child please send a written note on that day.
