4B General Information

Student Responsibilities

  • Be aware of any missed or incomplete work (check email and 4B Mailbox)
  • Be prepared for class (backpack, water bottle, homework, library books, etc.)
  • 30 minutes of reading each night (EAL students should be reading more than this amount!) and sometimes 10 additional minutes of math or another subject
  • Incomplete work becomes homework or is completed during recess
  • Keeping desk basket organized and work area neat
  • Keeping iPad charged and apps and documents organized

**Please encourage responsibility by giving your child chores at home, not just schoolwork!


Managing the iPad at Home

  • Make sure that the iPad is charged nightly in a different area from where your child sleeps. No one should be on past 8:00pm!
  • Make sure that your child is following the Family Device Agreement that he/she signed.
  • Only teacher-approved apps should appear on the iPad (located on 4B class blog!)
  • If your child is abusing his/her iPad privileges, TAKE IT AWAY and let the teacher know!

Celebrations and Birthdays

  • Please let the teacher know a few days in advance if possible!

**All birthdays and celebrations will take place at the end of the day at 2:40PM so that they do not interfere with learning!


Absences and Dismissals

  • If your child is absent, please email or WeChat the teacher as well as calling the ES office.
  • If your child is not riding the bus on a certain day, please contact Laurie Chen (lchen@sis.org.cn) so she can let the bus drivers know!
  • If your child is being picked up by someone else or going home with another child, let us know in writing or your child will not be allowed to leave!

Student Home Environment 

It is important that your child have:

  • A regular bedtime so that they get enough sleep
  • A healthy breakfast in the morning (snack and lunch are later this year!)
  • A healthy snack (no candy, cookies, or chocolate please!)
  • quiet place to work that is free of distractions (this will hopefully be the same place each day!)
