Important Notes

 

  1. During the summer months your child may bring a water bottle to class.  Water Only.  Please make sure the bottle has a tight seal on it and is easy to drink from.  Please also put your child’s name on the bottle.
  2. We will have snack each day.  Please make sure to send a healthy snack each day.  All dessert sacks will be sent back home.  Please note the new policy for birthday treats on page 25 of the parent handbook.  No frosted cupcakes should be sent to school.
  3. Your child brought home their Home Folder and Assignment Notebook today.  The folder pockets are marked “Bring Back to School” and “Stay at Home”.  Notes will go in the “Stay at Home” side unless they need to be returned and homework should go on the “Bring Back to School” side.  Please go over all homework assignments with your child and initial the assignment book each day and return it to school.  Weekly spelling words will also be written in the Assignment Notebooks.
  4. Every Friday you will also receive a Friday Folder with all your student’s graded work.  Please return those folders by the next school day.
  5. A monthly newsletter will be sent home via email.  In this letter you will find information about what the students will be learning that month.  If you would prefer a paper copy of this letter, please let me know.
  6. The St. Chris website contains our weekly classroom schedule and daily homework assignments.  You will also find weekly spelling words and an overview of the lessons for the week.  You can find it at https://www.stchrisschool.org/homework under 2nd Grade.

Behavior Chart

 

Blue – This is the highest level where students have gone above and beyond in the classroom

Green – Everyone starts here and students should work to stay on green or move up to Blue

Yellow – The first warning

Orange – The second warning and student will lose 10 minutes of recess.

Red – Final warning, a “Think About It” sheet is filled out at school and taken home to be signed by mom or dad and they have lost their next recess privilege for the day.

 

When a student ends their day on blue, they receive a certificate and will be able to pick a prize from the Treasure Chest.

 

We have two reward programs.  Every day a Secret Super Hero will be chosen.  Only the students who did NOT move their behavior clip are eligible to be our Hero.  This encourages students to stay on green.  Heroes will have special jobs that day and receive a prize. 

 

Students also have an opportunity to pick from the treasure chest when they have filled their treasure map with gold.  They will earn gold each day their assignment notebook is signed and when they bring their Friday Folder back with a signature.  They will also have other opportunities to earn gold throughout the day with good behavior.
