|Classroom Rules and Handbook |
Welcome to Mr. Priceís
Fourth Grade Class
My name is Mr. Price I am the 4th grade teacher at Solomon Elementary School. I am looking forward to getting to know you this year. I know that if you work hard and stay motivated it will be a successful year.
All about Mr. Price
I graduated from NAU in 2005. I have been teaching for 12 years, and I have been married for 14 years. I enjoy spending time with family and friends when not at work. Favorite activities include spending time outdoors. I also enjoy working on projects including woodworking, and love attending sports and cheering on my son Brayden in football games and other activities.
Rules, Procedures & Consequences
BE ON TIME
If you are late, you miss information. If you are late, you disrupt the class. If you are late, you miss tests or assignments. If you are late, you mess up other's counts for the day. BE ON TIME!
If you are always late, there will be consequences such as, but not limited to: writing sentences and serving detention. All decisions are made by Mr. England and me.
For us to accomplish all that we have in the time we are given, there are some rules that will help us operate efficiently.
1. Walk when entering the building. Walk quietly, single file in a line.
2. Hats are to be removed as soon as you enter any building.
3. Quietly enter the room, get materials out, and be seated.
4. Hands must be raised to ask or answer a question.
5. Do whatís asked of you the first time.
6. Keep your area clean.
7. Cooperate with your group or partners.
8. Be prepared!
9. Respect others and you will be respected.
10. Keep your hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
11. Ask to leave the room ONLY during work time, not during lecture (teaching time).
12. Raise your hand before leaving your seat
There are both positive and negative consequences for student behavior. If a student chooses to follow classroom rules, the following rewards are available:
1. Joy of learning
2. Good grades
3. Verbal praise
4. Special privileges
Also every couple of weeks students are given the chance receive extra prizes. These small items are rewarded as an incentive for good behavior and great work on individual assignments.
When a student chooses not to follow a rule, the following steps may be taken, but are not limited to:
1st offense: warning
2nd offense: after school detention
3rd offense: loss of privileges
4th offense: parent/guardian conference
Severe Clause: may skip previous steps and automatic referral to the Principal.
Unless otherwise stated by the teacher, all written assignments are due (in the classroom at the assigned class period) the day after they have been assigned. We will NOT CALL HOME for forgotten work. Expect your child to have homework. I will try to give them as much time as possible to complete their work (and most students who use their time wisely finish their assignments); however, teachers are expected to cover a vast amount of material due to the state mandated tests. It is impossible to meet state standards and not give homework! Teachers must follow the district curriculum map in each grade level and move on to the next concept/lesson on time. Therefore, it is the studentsí responsibility to take home any work they have not completed at the end of the day.
Students are expected to write a heading on each paper: Name, Date, if the name is not provided papers will be thrown away. ALSOLATE WORK is NOT ACCEPTED. Students must be responsible for their own materials and assignments. Students will receive a zero if an assignment is not turned in at the time it is due. A detention slip will be filled out and returned to me with a parentís signature the next day, to be filed for all papers not turned in on time. If I do not receive the signed detention slip, the next school day, the student will serve recess time.
Students must always have their library book with them to read if they are finished with an assignment.
No cheating, copying, or plagiarism. These actions will result in disciplinary action and a zero grade.
It is the studentís responsibility to ask for missed assignments upon their return to class. They also have the webpage to follow to stay caught up during absences.
Make-up work is due 1 day after their return to class after a 1 day absence. Each additional day a student is absent adds another day to the Make-up Work due date.
Each assignment will be graded. Assignments in all subjects are graded on a point system. Points are assigned to an assignment. The student's grade is a percentage which can be figured out by dividing the points earned by the points possible (top number divided by bottom number).
Daily assignments represent only a portion of the studentsí grades. Tests and Major Assignments may be awarded a larger percentage of points than a daily assignment.
