My name is Mrs. Connie Ellis and I have been a teacher for 22 years. I am married with two boys, ages 14 and 17. I love anything with "Bling". I love sparkles too! I am so excited for this school year to begin and look forward to meeting each and everyone of you.
I will be teaching 5th Grade Language Arts and 5th Grade Social Studies and I have very high expectations for all of my students. Every student must purchase a planner and bring it to every class, every day. The students are expected to write down the agenda from the board for every class in their planner. If the planner is lost, it must be replaced as soon as possible.
Raise my hand and wait my turn. Excessive noise, tapping, humming, etc., is unacceptable.
Everyone’s property is private. Ask permission before taking.
Speak in an appropriate tone of voice and acceptable volume. Use acceptable vocabulary.
People do not like to be hurt. Keep hands, feet, objects, and rude comments to myself. Stay in my seat.
Everyone comes to class prepared, in appropriate dress.
Clean up after myself. No gum, drinks, or candy in class.
Take responsibility in the hall. Walk in a quiet straight line.
ISN: Interactive Student Notebooks
Each student will be expected to maintain an interactive student notebook, one for each class, and keep it in their locker and bring it to class everyday. This notebook will be used in the class every day. Students can take their ISN home to study for their tests, but it will need to be returned the next school day.
A Daily Geography packet will be given as homework on Fridays and will be due the following Friday.
A Spelling packet will be given as homework on Mondays and will be due the Friday of that same week with a Spelling Test on that Friday of every week.
Students will be expected to follow the CHAMP expectations and procedures.
The CHAMP expectations are as follows:
C: Conversation H: Help A: Activity M: Movement and P: Participation
Tutoring will be offered on Wednesday morning for Social Studies from 8:00 to 8:30 and Thursdays after school from 3:40 to 4:15 by appointment only. Arrangements must be made the day before with their parents and the teacher in order for the student to stay after school for tutoring. To view your child's grades, please use the skyward link below:
