1. Please send your child to school on time every single day. School starts at 8:10 a.m. Lateness is a disruption to instruction.

3. Please send your child to school with 5 sharpened #2 pencils daily.

4. All tests must be signed and returned back to school.

5. Please complete all daily homework assignments on the day in which it is assigned so that the students can master the concepts that they have learned at school that day.

6. If you have any questions or comments or concerns, feel free to send a note with your child or email me dfaziola@schools.nyc.gov

7. We will be giving the students an unannounced Reading Comprehension Exam every other week.

8. Please make sure that your child studies their weekly spelling words every night.

9. Our class mommies are Caprice Powe (Makhi’s mom) and Madeline Aliverio (Jaline’s Mom).

10. Just a reminder:

a. Spelling Homework: if you would like your child to just write the spelling words 5x’s each for Tuesday and Thursday instead of completing an activity from the sheet, that assignment will count for their spelling homework.

b. Math: Here is the link to go math to help you assist your child.
