  • Classroom Expectations

    Posted by Katherine Koster on 8/23/2019 5:00:00 AM

    Daily Assignments

    During the school day, students are expected to work on group and individual assignments. Student are responsible for putting forth their best effort on all assignments and finishing their assignments on time. Any late assignments will be finished at recess or for homework.


    Students will be given an assignment notebook where all assignments, tests, and other reminders are to be written. We will go over this notebook daily in class and it should be reviewed at home nightly. 

    Student homework will vary throughout the year. Students should read every night.  Students will also have math homework almost every night. In addition, students will have research projects, writing assignments, and other projects due throughout the year. 


    In the case of an absence, students are responsible for completing all missed work including notes, tests, and projects.  For every day missed, students have one day to complete their work.

    If you are planning on being gone for an extended amount of time, please let me know as soon as possible so I can prepare assignments ahead of time. It is important to follow school policy when leaving for an extended amount of time. 


    Our classroom is a food free zone. All celebrations are food free. 

    Field Trips (Traveling Classroom)

    All field trips are an extention of the learning that is happening in the classroom. As a result, it is expected that all students follow school expectations at all times while on a field trip. In addtion to school expectations, traveling classroom expectations include but are not limited to the following:

        • No electronics can be used on the trip.
        • Respect all of the adults who are teaching and working with our group. Listen to them- they are experts! 
        • Respect all of the peers in your group, and work together to be successful. 
        • Be safe by walking from place to place, staying calm and quiet, and being cautious.
        • Stay with your assigned group at all times. 
        • Follow all directions promptly. 
        • Stay seated and calm while on the bus, and use a quiet speaking voice.
        • Be prepared for all conditions: Bring your backpack with a raincoat, a hat, extra layers, lunch and a bottle of water. You may bring a book for the bus ride.  
        • Be responsible: Students are responsible for their belongings and behavior at all times. 
        • Plan ahead: Due to the physical constraints of our locations and the time constraints of activities, bathroom breaks are extremely limited.
