    Classroom Expectations

    Daily Preparation/Homework

    ƒ RESPONSIBILITY is becoming more of a focus in third grade. 
    Students have weekly jobs and a planning calendar to keep track of. The use of the planner is mandatory and
    necessary to keep parents informed of our activities. It is also a way to stay ORGANIZED.

    ƒ ALLTESTS AND QUIZZES MUST BE SIGNED AND RETURNED TO SCHOOL THE NEXT DAY. If you wish to have it back to review more
    closely, please make a note on the paper. I will gladly return them for a couple of days.
