    Thank you for entrusting your child to us at Rock Spring Elementary School!  I will do my best to make this year a pleasant educational experience for your child.  As a parent, you can help by making me aware of any situation which may cause your child difficulty with his/her work, classmates, or school in general.

    All students will receive a CRITTER Binder that will be brought home nightly.  Agendas, information from school, and other important items will be kept in the binder.  Homework assignments and announcements will be written on the board each day and copied in agendas.  (If you choose not to purchase one from the school, a spiral notebook will suffice.)  Please check the binder nightly and initial the agenda indicating that you are aware that the work was completed.

    Reading and other homework is required nightly.  It will be kept in your child’s CRITTER Binder in the homework section.  In that section, there will be a log to record reading, as well as other daily homework.  This homework will not be checked for completion until Friday; however, your child should work on it a little each night so that I can answer any questions that may arise.  I may assign other homework in addition to what is in the binder, but if your child uses his/her class time wisely it will not be much.  If an emergency occurs and your child is not able to complete his/her homework, please send a note explaining the circumstances enabling me to equitably handle the situation.

    Good behavior is a must!  A child loses valuable class time if he/she is misbehaving, and jeopardizes the learning of others.  School should be an enjoyable learning experience for everyone.  You can keep up with your childs behavior by checking Class Dojo and the ROCK calendar in the homework section of your childs CRITTER Binder.  Students meeting expectations receive a YOU ROCK stamp for the day.

    Look for newsletters/progress reports to come home with graded papers starting the third Friday of school and every other week thereafter.  Please pay close attention to these notices as you sign and return them.  They will include AR updates, missing assignments, and other important information.

    This is going to be a great school year for all of us!  Please let me know if you have any comments or concerns about your child and his/her fourth grade progress.  I can be reached after school from 2:30-4:00 P.M and throughout the day by e-mail or Class Dojo message.
