This Week's Newsletter
Crockett Students are DifferenceMakers!
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN MY CLASSES?
MATH: Since we missed a couple of days last week, we finished the week practicing equations. So this week students will be learning how to find percents, given the whole or part. They will also be able to use the same proportion to find part and whole, depending on which is missing. On Friday, we'll introduce Inequalities.
SCIENCE - Don't Worry! We will still be having both the Rock Lab and the Starburst Lab this week! Plus, our test over the Layers of the Earth, the Rock Cycle, and the three main types of Rocks has been postponed until Friday.
SOCIAL Studies-We will study The Civil Rights Movement and Segregation
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW TO BE PART OF THE DARTMOUTH TEAM...
Team Dartmouth Social Contract
Our students worked together to come up with some classroom norms that we call our Social Contract. Each student will sign the contract, acknowledging that they abide by it.
* Be Respectful
* Be Friendly
* Remember the Golden Rule
* Do good things even when no one is watching.
* Be honest...trustworthy
* Business First
* Give 100%
* Have a Positive Attitude
Students are expected to follow class rules, complete assigned class work on time, and request any missed work the day they return from an absence. If a student makes less than a 70 on a test, he/she will be allowed to make corrections for no more than a 70. Students will need to request the correction form from the teacher.
Parents can check student grades at any time in the Parent Portal. You can also set up notifications to alert you about grades. Every 3 weeks a Progress Report will be available, and Final Grades are calculated every 9 weeks. The grade average will consist of Daily Grades and Test Grades.
It is expected that every student has read and understands the Paris ISD Discipline Management Plan and Student Code of Conduct and is willing to abide by that policy. In addition, each student is expected to:
Be courteous and respectful to everyone in the classroom.
Be in class on time with all materials and ready to work.
Make up missed assignments and tests in a timely manner.
Respect school property and the property of your teachers and classmates.
Adhere to the district rules for academic honesty.
Follow hallway procedures determined by administration.
Students who do not abide by the class rules are subject to discipline, and will forfeit rewards.
Discipline includes, but is not limited to:
-Writing sentences during Recess explaining your misbehavior in class
-After school detention
-ISS (In School Suspension)
LATE WORK POLICY
Students are expected to complete their assignments on time. If a student is late completing work this procedure is followed:
1 Day Late = 20 points deducted
2 Days Late = 30 points deducted
3 Days Late = 50 points deducted
4 Days Late = Score of 0
1. Pencils...Students must have their own pencil in every class every day.

Other useful items:
Throughout the year, we have incentive activities to motivate students to do their best work and be on their best behavior. If you would like to provide items that can be used as prizes, please let us know.
We want this year to be one in which our students will grow academically, socially, and emotionally, and which they will remember in a positive way.
Thank you for your support.
