• Class Rules

        I am looking forward to having your child in my class this year.The following discipline plan has been developed to ensure that each child has an opportunity to learn.

    Follow directions.
    Keep hands, feet, and objects to yourself.
    Use classroom voices.
    Speak with permission.
    Listen when others are speaking.
    Use kind words to solve problems.

    Students who behave appropriately will be rewarded with verbal and nonverbal reinforcements. If a student chooses to misbehave, one or more of the following will occur depending on the circumstances:

    Warning
    DoJo points lost
    Loss of privilege (for example: 5 minutes of missed recess)
    Contact parent
    Lower conduct mark

        Children are more successful when parents and teachers work together. I will keep you informed about your child's progress. If your child's conduct grade drops, you will be notified. Please contact me with any concerns or questions. 





    Expectations

    Sunnyvale Elementary follows the state mandated curriculum, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills(TEKS).  This curriculum consists of English/Language Arts,(which includes reading, listening, speaking, and writing), math, science,social studies, and health.  First grade students also receive instruction in physical education, music, art, Spanish, and technology.  Developing language and math skills is the  primary emphasis in first grade.  Your child will participate in a wide variety of activities designed to build his/her skills in these areas. 

    First grade is a special time in a child's life when the world is full of fantastic new information and exciting happenings.  We strive to ensure that your child receives the instruction necessary to be a successful student in a manner that encourages this love of learning.
