5th Grade Curriculum Night 2012-2013 The Team: Paula Guerrero Lyndee Eades, Shannon Rainwater, Drew Wilson Northbrook is Title I How did we become a Title I Campus?
Based on the number of Students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch in the School District. At Northbrook in the 2011-2012 School year, we had 65.6% of our students qualify. What does this mean for our campus? Title I is a federal program designed to help students who need additional support in Reading or Mathnot only students who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch.
We receive federal funds because of our Title I status. At Northbrook, Title I money is used to fund 2 teachers: Our Math Specialist and our Reading Specialist. Attendance Texas Compulsory Attendance law requires that students must be in attendance 90% of the school year in order to receive credit for that year. An absence can be all day or partial day. Tardies can be considered for this state law and also for truancy. Attendance and being on time is IMPORTANT! AGAIN for 2012-2013 Students arriving late will need an adult to sign them into school in the office.
Your child should be at school unless they are sick. If you have a scheduled appointment for something other than illness, it is important that your child attend school for the other part of the school day. School starts at 7:40 and dismisses at 2:40. Truancy will be filed on your student if they miss school excessively and the absences are not excused. School hours School begins at 7:40 when the first bell rings.
Breakfast is served from 7:10 -7:30 A.M. Students are tardy from 7:40-9:59 A.M. After 10:00 AM they are absent School is dismissed at 2:40 PM For your childs safety, please do not drop them off before 7:10 A.M., as there is no supervision until 7:10. Lunch/Breakfast Lunch is $2.15 Breakfast is $1.35 You can make deposits on line or send in money to the cafeteria for your childs meal account. Children are allowed 3 charges and then they are provided with a tray that does not include the main entre

9 week Conduct Grading Scale 90-100 Excellent 80-89 70-79 69 or less Satisfactory Needs Improvement Unsatisfactory Conduct grades are determined by your students choices for the 9 week grading period. Each 9 weeks your child starts with a 100 (E) in Conduct. After the first tally is pulled, two points will be subtracted from their 100 (E). Two points will continue to be subtracted from the conduct grade for the 9 week grading period.
For each Golden Tally a student earns one point will be added to their conduct grade. Example: A student pulls 6 tallies in a 9 week grading period. 6 tallies times 2 points per tally equals 12 points subtracted from their 100 (E). This student would earn a conduct grade of an 88 or S. 100 (E) - 12 points = 88 (S) Confidentiality Teachers and staff at NES are not permitted to discuss with parents any student who is not their child. This includes any and all discipline issues. Newsletters Newsletters will be sent home weekly with information that is pertinent for that week. Please read these and note important dates.
Homework 10 minute rule (aside from reading) each teacherProcedures agrees that they will not assign homework that would take their students more than 10 minutes per grade level year. example: 3 grade=30 minutes. Each grade level will assign reading, math, and spelling homework. Homework will be given out every Monday (the Friday before in the event there is no school on Monday) and math & reading will be collected every Thursday. Spelling will be collected every Friday. If a student does not do their HW then they are
expected to work on it during their recess time on Friday. (No tallies will be pulled) So their conduct grade will not be effected. Homework will not be graded, so their report card grades will not be effected. If a student does complete their homework and turns it in on time they will be given a homework point voucher worth 5 pts. . Students are responsible for these vouchers. There is a place for them to put their name and they may staple their voucher to any assignment or test that they would like the 5pts. added to. Blazer Buddies Homework Helpers whatever we call itStudents have the
opportunity to come to the library Wed-Fri mornings from 7:10-7:30 to have a place to do their HW and or get help with their HW. (no food or drink allowed) Math Homework Math homework will go home Monday-Thursday nightly. This will be a few problems nightly on material that has been taught. This homework will be checked the next day. If homework is not returned, they will do it during recess. Failure to do homework will result in a W tally. Parent contact will be made if this is a persistent problem. Math *Practice, practice, practice multiplication facts through 12x12
