Behavior Chart Information
I have a pocket at school with four color cards in it. We begin each day with a green card. If I still have my green card at the end of the day, you will know that I have had a good day. If I do not obey our class rules, my teacher will take my green card, and I will be on an orange “warning” card. Here is our behavior color chart:
Green card: good day
Orange card: after several warnings--note home--recess timeout--5 minutes
Yellow card: note home--recess timeout--15 minutes
Red card: note home--no recess—the principal will talk to me
Sometimes, if the teacher catches me doing something good, I will get a “star” ticket! If I get 10 of these, I get a surprise. Here are the rules I must follow:

In the Fall, name homework will be sent home until your child has fully mastered writing his/her first name. A monthly calendar of homework will also be sent home. When your child completes an assignment please initial it. At the end of the month return it for a surprise!
In the Spring, there will be Monday through Thursday homework for Spelling. All homework will be marked on their behavior chart that comes home to you so you will know if there is homework on that night. Homework should take your child no more than 10 minutes to complete and be returned the next day. We want parents to help their Kindergartner with their homework, it is not meant for them to do all by themselves. They will need the instructions read to them and if they need help, please help them. Thank you for your help!
Birthday Party Guidelines
We do celebrate birthdays! Please feel free to send cupcakes or cookies to celebrate your child’s birthday. You can send enough for the entire Kindergarten or enough for your child’s classroom. We usually celebrate at snack time which is at 2:00 in the afternoon, right after getting up from nap. You can bring the food to the office and they will get it to us or you can bring it yourself at 2:00 in the afternoon.
