Good to Know! 1

Here is some information that might help answer some questions!

 
Classroom Rules:1
We have 3 rules that remain the same throughout the building:
 
1.  Be respectful: Respect yourself, the staff, your classmates, your property, and the property of others including Krum ISD.
 
2. Be responsible: Responsibility is doing your best to meet the expectations of your teachers and other staff members.  This includes following directions.
 
3. Be ready: Being prepared for class each day by having your homework done and the supplies you need for each class.
 
Rewards:1
 Students can receive coupons such as, computer time, homework passes, sit by a friend for the day, etc., as incentives for following rules and exhibiting other positive behaviors.  
Consequences:1
Students in the 4th grade have a green conduct card folder that travels throughout the building with them. If a student is not following one of the rules above, they will receive a verbal warning.  After that, if the student continues the misbehavior they will receive a conduct mark.
 
Each day: 
  • One conduct mark results in the loss of 5 minutes of daily recess
  • Two conduct marks will result in the complete loss of daily recess
  • Three conduct marks the student's parent/guardian will be called in addition to the loss of recess
  • Four conduct marks, or a serious offense (such as fighting), will earn the student a visit with the principal in addition to the disciplines above. 
**Conduct cards come home on Friday for a parent signature.  Please review them each weekend, and sign so that your child may return them to school on Monday.
 
Homework/Late Work:1
Assignments given in class that are not finished before the end of the day become homework. They are due the following day unless the students are told otherwise, and given a due date. 
If a student does not complete an assignment, they will receive a conduct mark for each assignment not done, but they can still turn the assignment in late. 
When an assignment is turned in late, the grading procedure is as follows:
 
1 day late: the student cannot receive higher than an 70%
2 days late: grade reduced by 50 pts.
After that the grade will be recorded as a zero
 
 
Correction Policy:1
We all know that sometimes we mess up.  Every student will have a bad day, or just not remember what they are supposed to do on an assignment.  Sometimes they may come home on Friday with a graded paper that is below 75%. Students have been told that they may correct daily assignments, with a grade of 75% or below, for a higher grade. Corrected papers must be corrected in accordance with the Correction Policy in the student binder, and be turned in on the Monday after they are returned graded.
**Some assignments such as tests and true/false answer work, are not eligible for correction.
