Field Day Kindergarten Helpers
4th-grade students have the opportunity to become a Kindergarten buddy for field day. In January, the expectations were communicated to students and an email was sent to our parent groups.
In order to participate as a Kindergarten buddy, 4th-grade students must have 80% days with no behavior notes on their communication logs. In other words, everyone makes mistakes, but we are promoting this position as one of responsibility and mentorship, and we maintain high expectations for students expecting to fill this role. Therefore, as in previous years, a 4th grader hoping to earn this privilege may have no more than 16 days with documented misbehaviors up to May 17th in order to participate. Examples of inappropriate behaviors are the same as throughout the year (talking out, continuous disruption, not following directions or being off task repetitively, rudeness, etc.).
Carefully review your child’s communication log each Monday when it comes home in the blue folder. If there is a behavior mark, discuss this with your child so they can remain on track to earn this fun, end-of-year privilege. Thank you for your support.
We are seeing a rise in issues with smartwatches (texting, games, etc.). We are asking that students with electronics (cell phones, smartwatches, etc.) please leave their devices in their backpacks during class time. Students are welcome to have them in-use before and after school if they need them for transportation purposes, but they do not need them during class time. Thank you for your understanding!
