Classroom Policy
Homework: Classroom assignments are due the next school day at 8:00 or when you arrive at school. You are given time in class to work on assignments; however, everyone works at a different rate or some do not use their time wisely. Consequently, you will need to finish assignments at home if they are not completed during class work time. Each month there will be a book project to complete that is completed as homework or during free time.
AR Reading: Students will receive an AR goal each quarter. These goals are based on the student's individual reading ability; therefore, they will vary from student to student. AR will account for one-third of your reading grade. AR is an assignment that is to be completed just as you would any class assignment. Accountability Notices will be given for students who do complete their reading goal for the quarter. Students who get behind in their reading may be held in from recess to allow extra time to catch up. At the end of each quarter we will have a snack/movie party for students who reached 100% of their goal for the quarter.

Grading Scale:

96-100 A
87-89 B+
77-79 C+
67-69 D+
90-95 A-
84-86 B
74-76 C
64-66 D
WOW
80-83 B-
70-73 C-
60-63 D-
59 and below F
Extra Credit: Extra Credit will be available. Reading: Up to 100 points available for reading above AR percentage goal each quarter. Math: Points may be earned by completing the chapter test in the textbook prior to each test. Science: Points may be earned by reading nonfiction science related books related to the current unit being studied. Social Studies: Extra points may be earned by reading historical fiction or nonfiction. Extra credit is voluntary on the student's part.
Accountability Notices: Assignments are due the next school day at 8:00 or when you first arrive at school. I do not allow students to finish work from the previous day when you arrive because it tends to be hurried and not your best effort. Rushed work also leads to poor school habits. An Accountability Notice will be issued for missing and incomplete assignments. A copy of the notice will be sent home for a parent signature. You will be held in at recess to complete the assignment and until the signed notice is returned to school.
Field Trips: We have several trips to Hartville throughout the year. We also have the end of the year field trip. Students who receive three discipline notices or have excessive absences will not be eligible for field trips.
Progress Reports: You will be taking home a progress report approximately every two-three weeks. This report will need to be signed and returned with a parent signature.
Graded Work: Student graded work will come home stapled usually each Friday.
Absences: When you are absent, you are required to make up any missing assignment, science lab if possible, or project work. When you return to school, I will have your missed assignments stapled together. You will be given two days to complete assignments for each day missed. EXCEPTION!!! If a long-term assignment or project falls due during an absence, you will be expected to turn in the work/project/presentation on the day you return.
Website: You can visit our classroom site at http://www.hartville.k12.mo.us/schoolwebs/Gk-6/richardsonl/ to see what we are doing each week. The Internet changes constantly and not always in a good way. Please note that the links listed on our website are intended for educational purposes only.
