Syllabus:
I use the Alabama State Course of Study as my guide for instruction.

Each morning your child will copy homework assignments into his/her "C" book. Your child will have math, reading, and spelling homework nightly. Please return it to school the next day. Please remember to read and sign "C" book nightly.


Conduct:

Your child will begin each week with 100 points. For each conduct mark received during the week, 5 points will be deducted .  On Friday your child will receive a grade in conduct.  At the end of the nine week grading period, all nine weekly grades will be averaged for the grade he/she will receive on his/her report card.  Conduct slips will be sent home each Tuesday with your child's test packet. If your child doesn't pull any tickets Monday through Friday they will get to choose a prize from our treasure box!
