I expect all of the children to follow these
rules at all times. The behavior plan I use
in my room is based on a "strip" system.
If a child breaks a rule the consequences are as follows.
1st offense- pull one strip =Warning
2nd offense-pull 2nd strip =miss ˝ of recess
3rd offense- pull 3rd strip =miss all of recess
4th offense- pull 4th strip =call home and/or go to

Go Home Folder
At the end of each week (Friday) I pass back all graded assignments that were
completed during the week. Please look over all of your child’s work. You
should also check your child’s folder or book bag nightly for any notices or
flyers that may go home during the week.
Please send in a written excuse following each absence or tardiness.
Fourth Grade New York State Tests
Your child will be taking three very important state exams this year.

practicing addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts and by
making sure your child is reading nightly.
I am looking forward to teaching your child and working with you. Please do
not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
