We are going to make a "Calming Jar" in class the first week of school. It will help with students anxiety and a great way to take a "Brain Break" during the day. If you want to donate any materials to the project I greatly appreciate it! Materials needed: clear plastic water bottle (I found at Walmart for 1$, class set 21 students), glitter any colors, 2 large economy size clear Elmer's glue. Please email me if you are able to help with supplies! We appreciate your support in TEAM JOHNSON! I will attach what calming jars are below. Thank you!

Team Johnson News 2020-2021

I will be posting a weekly News post for any school activities, and important dates for the month. I will be entering grades on a weekly basis; usually on a Sunday. Please take the time to check Infinite Campus to see how amazing your student is doing, at least once a week that way there will be no surprises. If you need help with Infinite Campus please ask the front office they will gladly help you with any Infinite Campus questions. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns. I can be reach on my email or through the Remind app. that I will be sending info on in your students Thursday folder for this week.


Help the School

                The school is still doing Box tops and milk caps please continue to collect and turn into school. Get involved with PTO to find out other ways to help the school community. Our classroom is always looking for treasure chest items that students can buy with their classroom money.


 Note from teacher

            Please check your students Thursday folder to set up Remind app. I promise it will make your life so much easier. I send home nightly reminders on what will be homework, as well as updates on how days are going, or reminders about sign-ups for conferences. If you get the App on your phone it is even faster and easier, because if you’re like me your phone is always within hands reach.


Homework Policy

                Students’ grades will be affected by turning in late work.  Student’s work will lose 5 points per day until it is turned in. For absent work I will follow the school policy for absent work.  Reminder anything lower than 70% in Thursday folders can be redone and I will average the two grades to help improve the score. Redo work must be turned back in by the Monday after the Thursday folders. Grades are entered every week with a D or F report sent to you through email. Please remember to check Infinite Campus for grade updates the quarter flies by fast.
