Tardies and Absences School begins at 8:00
Every day is an important day at school; something new is always being taught. Even the first ten or fifteen minutes of each day can affect your childs success. Students who arrive even a few minutes late tend to be less organized and prepared than the students
who arrive on time.
Assignments can be requested if it looks like the excused absence will be more than two days. Please call the office as early as possible to request homework. It will be in the office by dismissal time on that same day.
More information will be given on Parent Information Night, but here are a few things to know for now.
Spelling tests will be given on Thursdays. New lists will go home on Fridays. Students will take a pretest on Friday, and be given challenge words to replace those they got correct on the pretest.
Spelling will be tested in the context of reading and writing.
The first and second grading periods will be dedicated to practicing the lower-case cursive letters taught in second grade, as well as learning the formation and connection of the capital cursive letters.
Third graders at Bush Elementary are required to do at-home reading at least 20 minutes per day.
Graded papers will be sent home as needed in the yellow pocket of the Homework Binder. Office notices will be sent in the yellow Tuesday Folder. On a week with a Monday holiday, the Tuesday Folder will be sent on Wednesday.
This folder will usually be packed with information from the school office such as the Bush Banner, important notices, and items from the PTO. It is very important that your child return the Tuesday Folder the next day.
