 How much is milk/juice?

Am I welcome to bring snacks for my child's birthday?

We love having snacks on your child's birthday.  Please let your child’s teacher know that you are bringing something so she can allow time for the snack.

What are gotchas?  We like to catch them being good! =-)

Your child may receive a gotcha if they are caught making good choices throughout the day.  On Wednesday they can cash them in for a variety of rewards.

Is my child assigned homework?

Every student is expected to study the spelling and vocabulary words. They will be tested on them every Friday. The words are taken from the weekly story in StoryTown. Your child should also be reading the story every night as well their fluency passage. It is possible if a student does not complete their class work, it will be sent home for completion.  Homework is collected the following day and students are expected to have it completed.

What is the CRT? or OCCT?

The Criterion Referenced Test for the state of Oklahoma is administered beginning in Third Grade.  The test is given in the Spring and every Third Grader must take it.  It is multiple choice and covers the state curriculum standards for Reading and Math.
