Mrs. Kurtz’s Class Policies
Instructor: Shannon Kurtz
Classroom: Grades 3-4
I want to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. I am looking forward to having your child in my class. Each subject has exciting topics awaiting them. In Math, we will be investigating the relationship between multiplication and division. In ILA, we will be participating in writing workshops. In Social Studies, we will explore the people and communities of the United States. In Science, we will be participating in virtual labs to learn about the branches of science.
Below you will find information regarding class policies. If at any time you have questions of concern, please do not hesitate to contact me on my school email.
Thank you for your kind attention. I am looking forward to a great year.
1. Arrive to class on time and be prepared for every class by having books, paper and a pen or pencil every day. Students will lose participation credit if they do not bring these items, as without them they will not be able to fully participate/ complete tasks.

3. Be responsible.
4. Observe all school and class rules.
1. Workbooks must be covered with contact paper.

Obtaining make-up work is the responsibility of the student. Students may make up missed homework and classwork at home on their own time, and may only use class time to complete make-up work if they have completed all their current assignments. Students will have the equivalent number of days that they were absent to submit the missed work. For example, if a student is absent for 2 days, then they will have two days once they have returned to turn in any missed assignments. Please see the Student Handbook for more details.
