Welcome to room 17! I am your child's teacher, Mrs. Kelly Kivett (or Mrs. K). I am looking forward to a happy and successful year working with you and your child. I have very high expectations for the students to achieve their best all year. It is very important that we work together for your child's success. I am really excited about getting to know each other better throughout the school year. Mark your calendar for All Star Academic Night on Thursday,September 18, at 5:30 - 7:00 pm.

I will be in contact with you from time to time to discuss your child's progress. Today I have begun a daily behavior program. My rules coincide with the school's rules which value Honoring Yourself, Honoring Others, Honoring the School Environment, Honoring Achievement, and Honoring Peace. Please read with your child and sign and return the school rules so that everyone is aware of what is expected. It is the student's responsibility to tell you if they changed their disciplinary card each day. If there is continuous negative behavior or a red card, you will be notified immediately. Recognition will be given to those who have better than a good day. You will have a second chance to check up on behavior for the week when you receive their progress report each Monday. Progress reports are due back by Wednesday each week with a parent signature. The discipline goes as follows:

Consequences for Negative Behavior

1. Yellow Card - First action a warning will be given.

2. Blue Card - Second action will be a decision made by the teacher (such as loss of recess, cleaning up, etc.)

3. Red Card - Third action will result in a note (to be signed and returned), e-mail, or phone call home; there will also be a loss of 2 recesses or decision made by the teacher. If the action is more severe, this might also result in a referral to the principal or counselor.

Positive Behavior

1. Green - Good Day

2. Pink - Great Day - Student is working hard in class

3. Purple - Excellent Day -Student going beyond expectations

Rewards for positive behavior will be given. Rewards may be stickers, snacks, class raffle tickets for prizes, work passes, rewards decided by the student and teacher,and treats or other class parties (class reward).

In the school rules, you will find a list of things that should not be sent with your child to school. I feel a need to add a few things that I saw cause conflicts with other students in the past. Please to not give your child extra materials to share or hand out (unless it is to the entire class). Children are always changing their minds and wanting their things returned to them. If your child would like to share things, please have them do so out of school hours. A healthy snack is recommended; we prefer students do not bring chips and cookies. If your child wears jewelry to school, they are to come with the understanding that it is to stay on all day. We all love to dress up, but playing with jewelry is very disruptive to teaching and learning. There is also a school wide rule of no toys. Toys will be taken by any member of the staff and returned at a later time. If toys are continually brought to my class after several warnings, the toys will be kept until picked up by a guardian or kept and returned in June.

Basic supplies will be provided for each student; however, donations such as tissue,copy paper, pencils, glue sticks,soap, etc. are greatly appreciated. Every once in while I will send home requests for supplies we need for special activities and class projects. Although all donations, no matter how big or small are greatly appreciated, they are always voluntary and never a prerequisite to participate in any program or activity.

You will be receiving a separate notice about homework.

Attached you will find an index card. Please fill in your child's name, your name, and daytime phone number. If you also have an email address, this is greatly appreciated. This is for my personal use to contact you and will be kept confidential. Please return this and the parent questionnaire within this first week.

I know this is going to be a great school year. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need any information. My number at school is (858) 496-8295, or email me at kkivett@sandi.net. For more information also be sure to check our website at https://www.angier.sandiegounified.org/ .

Sincerely,

Mrs. K.
