• Class rules/expectations for Mrs. Beach’s class.
    1. Follow directions the first time they are given.
    2. Raise hand, wait for permission to speak.
    3. Stay in seat unless given permission.
    4. Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
    5. Treat others with respect.

    Consequences for all behaviors are tracked using a “Conduct Folder” that your student will keep with them at all times and bring home on Fridays for you to see and initial. If there are any issues with your student’s behavior, these conduct folders will be checked and signed by the teacher. The following will be common consequences for checks:
    1 Check = 5 minutes (walk or run)
    2 Checks = 10 minutes laps
    3 Checks = no recess + silent lunch + call home
    4 or more Checks = parent phone call, visit with administrator.
    Students will be given Responsibility tickets for rewards. At the end of each nine weeks, students will redeem the responsibility tickets for Nine Weeks Reward Celebration. 

    I'm using ClassDojo to keep parents in the loop this year! I'll share photos from class, important updates and wonderful moments – like when students work hard and help each other.  Let me know if you need an invitation for your child’s code. 

    5th Grade Grading Policy

    1. Students will be given a chance to redo daily assignments and quizzes below a 70%.  If corrected, the highest grade given will be a 70% regardless of the corrected score.  Correcting or retaking unit tests will not be permitted.  The students will be given one week from the date the graded paper is returned to turn in the corrected assignment.

    1. Students who turn in assignments past the due date will have 10 points deducted from their score.  After one week the grade becomes a zero and will not be raised.  Two weeks will be allowed for major projects.

    1. Teachers will make a concerted effort to get any missing work from students.  In other words, the student will stay in from recess until the assignment is completed.  Parents will be contacted as deemed necessary.

    1. Unit tests and major projects will be weighted double.

    1. An instructing teacher will reteach during study hall, or schedule tutoring as needed.  This is mandatory if the student is failing.

    1. The teacher will request a conference if a student is failing any subject.
