Please fill out the free and reduced lunch forms; they are kept confidential and are a BIG benefit to our school. We will have two parties this year, Christmas and Tiger Day in May.

Students will have a morning bathroom and water break.

                Student papers will be sent home in blue folders every Thursday to be reviewed, signed, and RETURNED to be filed in their permanent folders. If folder is not signed when it is returned, that week’s papers will be filed in the student’s permanent folder. It is very important that we receive the papers back.

Please read over the information sheet along with other handouts and fill out the FORMS packet stapled together and return by Friday. Please sign and return the list of classroom rules and procedures. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us through the elementary office (694-5811). There have been many changes in our student handbook – PLEASE read over it carefully.

Homework & Classwork


All Subjects

          Home work is to be turned in at the assigned times. Forgotten or incomplete homework may be turned in to the teacher by the end of the day it is due to receive full credit. Forgotten or incomplete homework (worth 5 or more points) may be turned into the teacher the day after it is due (one day late) to receive half credit. Home work turned in two days late or later will receive zero credit. A student will lose this privilege if they make it a habit, (four or more occurrences) of turning in late assignments. Homework or class work assigned on a day that is an unexcused absence will result in a zero for the assignment.

Recess Time

            Recess time will be taken away from students for getting water or going to the bathroom during instructional time. The students will have an adjustment time for the first week of school to adjust the schedule.
