I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.
Isaiah 53:6 " We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all."
Reading Logs~Due each Friday
Please read each night with your child and sign form that has been sent home in homework folder.
Here is a recap of some classroom procedures: Each week we will be studying a new list of spelling words. Please review with your child, and each word must be written 3x's each (due Wednesday). If a student earns 100% on a Thursday pretest, they will not need to take the test Friday, and earn 5 warm fuzzies. Warm Fuzzies are our class's positive behavior management system that will create a lot of incentive and fun! Some ways a student can earn a fuzzy is memorizing the weekly scripture verse, excellent work, or earning a Character Badge. Ways a student can loose a fuzzy is forgetting to put their name on a paper, interrupt the teacher, or not being prepared for day with sharpened pencil! Each Friday, students will trade fuzzies in for Coupons. Some of these coupons are~earning a new pencil, a no homework pass for 1 night, or extra doodling time.(If Parents would like to donate small items from the Dollar Store such as pencils, fun erasers, special pens, etc., that would be MUCH appreciated! Thank you for all you do already!)
