††††††††† This is your childís P.I.R.A.T.E Binder (Prepared, Informed, Responsible and Together Everyday). He/she will be bringing this home everyday. This will be a daily communication log between school and home.
††††††††† You will notice a monthly calendar with a behavior line on each day. This goes along with the classroom behavior stick. Yellow means warning, orange is another problem has occurred and red is 3 situations in one day. Each time your student does not follow a rule or turn in homework, he/she has to move their clip on the stick.† Everyone starts off at green. †I will fill these out each day and write down what the problem was. If your student does not move their clip, I will put a sticker in the box for that day. I need you to initial the box DAILY.† This will let you know what is going on each day.
††††††††† Please understand that I DO NOT expect the students to be perfect. After all, they are just kids. This is my way of managing the classroom so that it can be a positive learning environment. Iím sure that EVERYONE will get their clip moved at some point in the year. When this happens, please talk to your student about his/her behavior. If it continually happens (everyday for several weeks), then you may want to take away at-home privileges too. Student of the Month will be voted on by the students not me. Requirements for student of the month are no tickets, never moving clip, no more than 3 tardies, good attendance and positive attitude.
††††††††† The zipper pouch is for lunch money, book order money, notes, or anything else that can be easily lost. Please put any money you send in an envelope with your studentís name on it, the amount, and what it is for.
There is also a daily assignment planner.† Students will fill these out each day to keep track of what assignments were due.†
†††††† Any correspondence from me or the school will be placed in this folder. Please check it and initial the calendar sheet daily. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me: at school 431-3300, at home 314-954-2180, or email email@example.com.
††††††††† I am looking forward to a wonderful, exciting school year!
