William Silas Garrett Elementary School Second Grade Teacher

Homework will be given weekly from Monday through Thursday.  Children will receive a homework assignment sheet each Monday for the entire week.  Individual (nightly) homework is to be turned in the following day.  At the end of the week, the homework sheet should be signed by the parent and returned to school.  Should the homework sheet be misplaced, assignments may be obtained from the website.  Thursday night homework will be done over the Internet.

Each child is responsible for his or her own classwork.  If an assignment is not turned in, the parent will be contacted.  If a student is absent, he/she will be given two days to complete the make-up work.

Signed Papers:
Signed papers will go home every two- three weeks.  Papers should be reviewed by parents, signed and returned the following day.  Please look for letters that I will occasionally attach as they may contain important information about the classroom as well as grades.

Good conduct is very important for each child to effectively learn in school.  I AM VERY STRICT ABOUT THIS!  Conduct grades will be based on a checklist system.  Please check your welcome packet to see how grades are determined. 
Students will be supplied with a weekly conduct calendar.
Stamps will be placed on each block to illustrate the behavior that has been exhibited during the week.  Please sign these calendars on Wednesday and return them on Thursday.  A small treat will be given to students that have "good" stamps for every day of the school week. 

Scholastic Book Orders:
This year our class will order books from Scholastic Book Club.  Order forms will be sent home periodically on Monday afternoons.  If you choose for your child to order books, please send the total amount due by Friday of the same week.  You may make checks payable to Scholastic Book Club.  Orders generally take 1 1/2 weeks to arrive and books will be distributed the same day.
