UNIFORM POLICY / DRESS CODE
Our parent body selected the following uniform colors.
All students are required to wear the uniform.
Solid navy-blue bottoms (skirt, pants, jumper or jeans)
FRIDAYS WE WEAR OUR COMMUNITY MEETING SHIRTS-ORANGE OR NAVY BLUE
Literacy and Math are taught in blocks of time in the morning each day. Therefore, it is imperative that students begin their day with their class.
Social Studies and Science are taught 2-4 times a week.
Included in the student’s week is time for word study, character education, various clubs/enrichment and intervention for those who exhibit the need.
Homework is a very important part in gaining and retaining what has been taught. Homework is assigned everyday. The standard homework for all students is to spend time reading with parents and independently every night. Grades 2-5 should be writing independently in their notebooks several times a week.
Students are expected to:
Copy the entire homework assignment and/or take home the HW Sheet
Ask the teacher to explain any assignment that is not clear
Complete the entire homework assignment including 30-minutes of independent reading
Set aside time and a quiet place to complete the homework assignments-NO TV
Do the homework to the best of his/her ability
Plan to get the homework when absent or arrange with the teacher for make-up
Report cards are issued at the end of each quarter (November, March and June). Parents must attend a Parent Teacher Conference in order to receive their child‘s report card. Report cards will not be issued to students. Progress Reports will be issued in October, February and May to keep you abreast of your child's progress BEFORE the actual report cards come out.
CARE of MATERIALS
A tremendous amount of money and effort has been put into developing leveled classroom libraries and purchasing other books and materials to support learning. They are expensive to replace and does not allow us to build the kind of necessary resources for learning when they are destroyed. We will teach children to care for and respect the books/materials; please make sure that they are careful with books that are sent home and return them (materials may be sent in baggies, please return them in the baggies).
You will be asked to replace lost or damaged books.
CARE of the BUILDING
The Weeksville School is your children’s home-away-from-home. Children are expected to help maintain a clean and attractive school. We discourage littering. Eating is reserved for the Cafeteria only and is prohibited in other areas of the school except on special occasions. Please refrain from giving children gum, candy, soda, sunflower seeds and other forms of junk food. Junk food will be confiscated.
We discourage writing on desks or walls. We discourage the defacing of the school building in anyway (bathrooms included).
Students must ask permission to leave the room. Teachers have various procedures for leaving the room and will make the final decision in regards to students leaving the room. Students are never allowed to leave the room alone and without permission or a hall pass. Please reinforce with your child that he/she is never to leave the school building.
Please label all articles for your children.
Check Room 122 for lost items.
Lost or found items should be reported to the main office immediately. Each year we are left with a large number of expensive items of clothing, glasses, etc. We will hold items for 1 month before the items are donated to “Good Will.”
We use the Citywide Standards of Discipline and Intervention Measures (The Discipline Code and Bill of Student Rights, K-12).
The standards set forth in the Discipline Code apply to behavior in school during school hours, before and after school, while on school property, while traveling on vehicles funded by the Department of Education, at all school-sponsored events and on other-than-school property when such behavior can be demonstrated to negatively affect the educational process or to endanger the health, safety, morals, or welfare of the school community. When misbehavior involves communication, gesture or expressive behavior, the infraction applies to oral, written or electronic communications.
When you receive your copy, please read and discuss fully these standards of behavior and the actions that will be taken for infractions with your child.
Return the tear-off to your child’s teacher to acknowledge your receipt.
