Class Policies

Important Classroom Information and Policies

All of these policies can also be found in the CES Student Handbook. 

Important Policies:

Late Work Penalty:
 In an effort to prepare our students for the increased level of responsibility required by 6th grade and middle/high school, it is a grade level-wide policy to promote timeliness and responsibility in turning in homework assignments. If an assignment is late, it is our policy to deduct 50% of the earned points after the first late submission each quarter. 

Timeliness in coming to class is another important quality we want to foster in the 5th grade. For this reason, any student who is tardy to class will be asked to pull a card. More information on our card system can be found in the student handbook. 

It is my personal policy to never overload my students with undue amounts of nightly homework. Most required work will be done in class; any work not completed during class time is due the following day as homework.
Nightly reading time is the only consistent homework I will give; all 5th grade students are expected to be reading 15-20 minutes at home every night
