Our classroom focuses on respect, responsibility, belonging, and, most importantly, the golden rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated. Good decision-making is part of the grade 5 Health curriculum; it's important to give kids tips at an early age to help them be successful with their relationships.
• Personal satisfaction!
• Verbal praise!
• Notes or e-mails home
• Students might participate in a special activity some days
• Are to help students think and reflect, not punish. If there is an ongoing problem, I will likely e-mail or phone home.
• In serious cases, student is accompanied to office, and parents are notified. Serious cases include physical violence, bullying, etc.
Students take out two French and two English books each
Day 1 from the Library. They are allowed and encouraged to bring them home. They are also encouraged to read in French as much as possible, and each day if they can!
Students fill out agendas on their own each day with homework assignments and announcements. Notes from school are usually placed inside the agenda's pocket.
Important messages are also communicated via Remind.com.
Sign up for Mme Roy's e-mails or texts by entering the class code @Hawyrlak5 on the remind.com website.
If you have a message for me, feel free to e-mail or write it
in the agenda, and remind your child to show it to me. I will ask several times each morning for notes from home. Thank you!
Homework Policy in Mme Roy's Class
Students will be given at least two days to complete all assignments, unless the assignment would normally take less than 15 minutes. This way, kids and families can plan around extracurricular activities and decide whether to do homework on the first or second night.
I try to explain assignments in detail and give children the opportunity to ask as many questions. However, if your child is unable to complete an assignment, please write a note in their agenda or e-mail me. The last thing I want is for a child to get discouraged and anxious, working late hours on an assignment.
