**Model Student Board: All students start each day with their names in the middle. If students have an excellent day they move their names over to the Model Student side. If rules are broken then they have to move their names to the Non-Student side. They have the opportunity to have their names moved throughout the day depending on how they are doing. If their name is on the Model Student side 4 out of 5 days of the week they will get a Model Student Certificate the following Monday. One recess is lost if they are on the Non-Student side at the end of the day.
**Student Stamp Card: Individual students that continue to make good choices throughout the day can earn stamps on their Stamp Card. Prizes are awarded for 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 stamps collected. Stamp cards can be redeemed when filled or saved for better prizes. These prizes are:
|30 stamps||prize from prize box|
|40 stamps||15 minutes of extra computer time|
|50 stamps||lunch in the classroom with a friend and the teacher|
HOMEWORK: Homework will be sent home every day except Fridays. It is always due the next day unless I have told them to work on a project that might take longer. If it is not returned the student will loose their morning recess (unless they have a note from a parent stating why it was not returned).
SPELLING: Spelling words will be sent home on Monday and need to be studied throughout the week for the test on Friday (words and spelling story). This needs to be made a priority at least twice a week at home.
READING: Reading is also a high priority in our class. For your child to improve their reading it is required that they read at least 20 minutes at home EACH night. They will have a reading log that will need to be signed each night verifying that they did their reading. Students that donít make this a priority at home will find it hard to make the improvement needed to be ďat grade levelĒ.

PROGRESS REPORTS: Progress Reports will be sent home every Monday and will need to be returned to school on Tuesday with a parentís signature (you may keep any work attached). These will let you know how your child is doing in class regarding their behavior and homework. I will also write notes to parents when I feel there is something specific that they need to know about. You may also write a note to me at the bottom if you have any questions.
