  • 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.


    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.


    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.

    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.

    March Newsletter
    Mrs. Axile's Class
    Dear Families,
    The month of March is an exciting one for your child. We have recently celebrated Literacy Night which was a fun event. It was great to see so many of you in attendance! Nevada Reading Week was also a success, as many students were enthusiastic about reading and enjoyed participating in school activities.
    I want to remind all families that homework is a requirement, even for first grade. The homework assigned is very basic and should not be problematic for your child. Since the homework expectation increases each year with his/her new grade level, it is crucial that good habits are established now. Homework helps to reinforce concepts and skills that have already been taught in the classroom. The continued practice at home helps to solidify those skills. Continued non-return of homework can have a negative impact on your child's study practices. Please review his/her homework on a nightly basis to insure completion. Also, reading logs should now be completed by your child. It is good practice for him/her to copy the title of the books that he/she is reading, as this helps him/her to identify book features that are being taught in class such as title, author, etc.
    We have been working hard on our math facts and learning how to compose and decompose tens. We will now be exploring geometry. Please ask your child to read to you nightly in order to practice fluency and decoding skills.

    Mrs. Axile
