  • PBIS

    For Aug 10, 2018

    Children will earn beep beep rewards for maintaining behavior that is in accordance with PBIS initiatives. This includes the school-adopted behavior matrix as well as my individual classroom matrix. The matrix consists of a list of acceptable behaviors that are expected in the school setting in order to maintain a safe, responsible, and respectful learning environment.

  • HOMEWORK INFORMATION / READING LOGS

    For Aug 10, 2018

    A homework assignment sheet will be provided to your child attached to the red homework folder. This paper will contain a list of activities that your child will be responsible for completing throughout the week. Students must complete one written activity each evening in addition to reading a book for fifteen minutes. All assignments should be completed under the supervision of an adult. Also, reading logs must be completed each evening with the name of the book that your child has read. Please review your child's completed work so that you may offer support if needed. Homework sheets that are more than one day late will not be accepted.

  • POLICIES & PROCEDURES

    For Aug 10, 2018

    I have rules in place to insure that my classroom is a positive and effective learning environment for all students. These rules are being provided to you and have already been explained in detail to your son or daughter. It would be greatly appreciated if you could also discuss these rules again at home with your child so that he or she clearly understands the behavior that is expected on a daily basis. This reinforcement at home will assist me in setting the tone here in school.

    RULES
    Respect others.
    Keep hands and feet to yourself at all times.
    Raise your hand to speak.
    Follow directions.
    Be kind.

    The behavior plan in my classroom consists of steps on our Ladder of Success being awarded for positive behavior. Your child will be able to see his/her star climb the Ladder of Success for positive choices. Your child will earn a visit to the classroom Treasure Box each time his/her star reaches the top of the ladder. He or she will also be able to earn points awarded to his or her table group if the group has made positive choices as a team. Team points are tallied at the end of each week to determine the winning group. Treasure Box is again the reward and consists of school supplies such as pencils, erasers, etc. This system allows for each child to have ample opportunity to earn points on a repeated basis and will provide positive reinforcement for good behavior. However, all points are subject to be taken away for behavior which is not consistent with our established classroom rules. Likewise, students may see his or her star go down the ladder for poor choices.

    Aggie Roberts Elementary School to not have birthday parties take place in the classroom. It is becoming a widely accepted practice to recognize a child's birthday by donating a book to the school library in your child's name. This serves as a more lasting token of your son or daughter's special day that can be enjoyed by the entire student body.

    If your child is absent for any reason, please send in a written note to explain the missed days. In order to excuse the absence, a written note must be received within three days of your child's return to school for such things as illness, family emergency, death in the family, etc. Extended absences must be prearranged in advance with school administration, not the classroom teacher. Make-up work will be provided upon your child's return to school. If your child is absent, he or she will have three days to make up the work and hand it in without it being counted as a late assignment.

    It is crucial that your child is aware of how he or she is to get home each evening. If there are any changes in your established routine during the course of the day, you must contact the school office and talk with someone personally so they may establish your identity. Please do not leave this information in a voice mail message because I do not accept phone calls while I am teaching. This information must be given personally to an office clerk so that the change in transportation can be officially verified. This is for your child's safety.

  • MONTHLY NEWSLETTER

    For Aug 30, 2019

    September Newsletter for Mrs. Axile’s First Grade Class
    Dear Families,
    I would like to thank so many of you for attending our Open House and hope that the information provided to you was helpful. The students have begun a new and exciting chapter in their lives and I am proud to be a part of that.
    Specials schedule: P.E. – Monday and Friday
    Music – Tuesday
    Art – Wednesday
    Library – Thursday

    It is important to remember that students should be wearing tennis shoes on P.E. days and library books need to be returned to school on library day.
    When your child brings home library books, please make sure that he or she is reading that book throughout the course of the week at home. Your child will be able to record their reading time on their weekly reading log which is due on Fridays. Please read a book to your child if your son or daughter is not yet a reader so they can get exposure to basic concepts of print. They may complete their reading log based on that activity. A fun idea is to see how many sight words they can recognize on each page.
    Homework will be ongoing throughout the year. Please assist your child in making sure that it has been completed in full and is packed in his/her backpack for the following day.
    All families are required to read the K-12 Student Code of Conduct document and sign the acknowledgement form (p. 52) and return that signed form to school as soon as possible. This document is located on the Clark County School District website. This signed acknowledgement is required by the school district. I have provided p. 52 to you for your convenience.
    I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with your children!

    Mrs. Axile
