Agendas will be used daily. This is a great communication tool for both parents and teachers. Parents should review and sign the agenda nightly.
Please keep us informed of any issues. We would love for the student to bring the issue directly to us and we will solve it together.
Facts quizzes will be given every Wednesday during the first semester. These can be corrected for improved scores. To receive credit the incorrect problem must be written three times with the correct answer on a piece of notebook paper.
Class Dojo is used on the Indo-Chinese Team. If you download the App you can keep track daily of your students behavior. A weekly report will be emailed to you on Friday from Class Dojo. Our team has established both rewards and consequences to promote cooperative behavior.
Alexander MS will send take home folders to parents each Thursday. Only corrected papers should be returned by the following Tuesday.
When a project is assigned, please support your student with planning and supplies. I expect projects to look like a 5th grader did the work and will grade it with that in mind.
Keeping track of supplies helps students become responsible. Students are expected to have all of the supplies needed for each class, each day. It is their responsibility to replenish the supplies as needed.
Bullying is strictly prohibited. If your child is a victim of this type of behavior, please see the PISD website for online reporting.
