From Mr. Beaty

McCall Parents,

Over the last few days McCall Elementary has experienced unusually high absentee rates. While we acknowledge the time of year and that we are in cold and flu season, we would like to offer the following suggestions to help keep kids healthy and in school:

Regular hand washing; keeping common surfaces in the home (door handles, remote controls, keyboards) cleaned and sanitized; eating healthy; drinking plenty of water; getting adequate sleep.

Of course, if kids are sick, please do plan to keep them home to get the rest they need to get well and prevent the spread of germs to other students at school. Aledo ISD requires kids be kept home if they have a fever greater than 100.4 (without the use of medication) or if they’ve experienced vomiting or diarrhea within the last 24 hours (without medication). If students are absent due to illness, please call the office to let us know and/or send a doctor’s note.

Aledo ISD combats illness at school by instituting cleaning protocols which focus on the cleaning and disinfecting of common surfaces to limit the spread of germs while kids are here, and promoting frequent healthy handwashing throughout the school day. Thank you for your cooperation as we strive keep all of our students healthy and in school.

Background Check Form

If you'd like to volunteer at McCall or chaperone a field trip, you need to make sure you fill out a background check at least one week prior.

Please note this change......

Mrs. Pace and I decided to send graded papers as soon as they're graded instead of waiting until Monday. Please check your student's binder daily to make sure they don't have any papers to correct. **Any grade below a 70 can be corrected for a 70 as long as it's been corrected and returned in three school days.**

Reflex and Think Through Math

Starting this week I'm asking your student to pass three TTM lessons and earn three green lights on Reflex. I check every Friday afternoon. So, your student's week begins Saturday and ends on Friday.

Math Homework

Here are some helpful ideas for the math pages that will be coming home with your student. We work on those pages in class and try to complete the first two pages during math time. The last page is titled Homework. However, I'm not assigning that work as homework. I'd love for you to sit down with your student and go over the questions they did in class together. If you find that your student could use a little more practice, feel free to work a couple of the homework questions, or questions of your own, together. Please know that I do not want those pages back. They are simply to give you another way to work with your child at home!


Also, some nights your student won't bring home any math pages because we did hands on activities, online activities, or math games in class.
