Dear Parents,

I am so thrilled to be working with your child and I am excited to have them in my classroom. I believe that by all of us working together we can make this a very successful year.

It is important that you and your child be informed of my standards of classroom behavior so everyone knows what is expected. Below you will find our classroom rules, student promise, as well as my own personal pledge to you and your child. If your child develops any difficulty conforming to the rules, I will notify you. As well, I hope that you will advise me if at any time your child has a problem, academic, social, or emotional. Should your child become discouraged or fearful about school, please communicate with me so that we can discover the cause of the problem.

You are invited to phone or email me any time that you have a question concerning your child’s progress. My personal contact information is listed on the first page of your child’s homework folder. I will keep you informed by sending home a weekly report log. Feel free to contact me if you need any additional information or if I can be of assistance.

I consider it a great privilege and responsibility to be your child’s teacher, and look forward to meeting and working with you.


Ms. Calixte

Be Prepared

Your student should come to class on time and prepared, every day.  Being prepared means that they have their homework folder, completed home learning assignments, and a minimum of five sharpened pencils. Please no mechanical pencils, standard #2 pencils only.

Six Simple Rules

  1. Raise your hand to talk (or get out of your seat).
  2. Follow directions quickly.
  3. Use helpful hands and words.
  4. Use inside voices.
  5. Make smart choices.
  6. Keep your dear teacher happy.

  • I will commit myself to learning.
  • I will learn everything I can.
  • I will listen, ask questions, and share what I know with others.
  • I am special and I have many talents.
  • I have pride in myself and respect for others.
  • I can become anything I wish to become.
  • I take delight in education.
  • I believe I will achieve and succeed this day.

My Pledge to Each Student

  • I will greet students each morning with a smile, and will be generous with my smiles throughout the day.
  • I will treat my students with respect and fairness.
  • I will look for opportunities to reward and praise students for their work and good behavior.
  • I will use fair and appropriate methods of discipline.
