HOMEWORK GUIDELINES
 
Reading homework is assigned each night. All assignments should be checked and signed daily. The parent or guardian should sign the reading log each night to be sure all assignments were completed. Any oral reading to be done as homework MUST be signed or it will not count.
 
All 100 Book Challenge Reading Steps should be logged and signed daily--2 steps Monday through Friday and 4 steps over the weekend.

Math practice-- Flashcards and website practice as the year progresses.
 
If your child does not complete all of his or her homework from the evening before, the child will receive a zero for the missing assignment(s).

BEHAVIOR AND DISCIPLINE
 
In the classroom, the rules and consequences are have been reviewed for appropriate behavior. Each student is aware of the behavior policy. If a child is having difficulty behaving, they may get their name entered in the behavior log. You will be notified via the Friday slip each week if that is the case for your child. For more severe behavior problems, you will be notified right away.
If the misbehavior continues, Mr. Hallman will be contacted. A parent conference may be necessary to see if we can work together to improve the behavior.
 
If your child is experiencing difficulty in a particular subject, I will notify you so we can discuss how to help your child improve.
