This afternoon the fifth and sixth graders will meet to talk about the Passport program, which begins tomorrow. The fifth graders will learn about the management program and the sixth graders will review it. To read a full description of the program, please refer to "Choice Passport" on the right hand side of this newsletter. Our main goal with the Passport is to allow students, teachers and parents the opportunity to keep track of the week to see how well homework, expected behaviors and being prepared for class are going. Students that meet the expectations earn a "Choice Time" on Wednesdays, where they can choose from a list of options which include, choosing a 30 minute recess, or possibly helping in a primary classroom. The big change to the program this year is the required Tuesday night Parent Signature. The goal with the signature is to allow parents and students an opportunity to celebrate successes, and discuss strategies for changes, if needed. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
Thank you for your support,
