Welcome to Mrs. Sarah Arrigonie’s or Mrs. A’s webpage! I am excited to share a little about our Learning Support program.  Mrs. Shannon Clune, Mrs. Heidi Tredinnick, and Ms. Lori Underwood are our wonderful classroom paraprofessionals.  This year we support students mainly in grades 4th and 5th.  If you need us we are located in room A19, but often can be found in Mrs. Francis’ or Mrs. Brown’s classrooms.

Class News

  • Please remember to check your child’s folder/binder and agenda each night. This is an excellent way for us to communicate!
  • Please help your child with his or her homework each night. If he or she has homework it will be written inside his or her agenda and placed inside his or her folder/binder.
  • The best times to call the classroom are 7:45-8:15 AM and 2:45-3:30 PM. (326-3554 x 1133)  Please let a message if I do not answer.  I am responsible for other duties and will often be out of the classroom.  Emailing me works great too – sarrigon@loyalsocklancers.org

Grading Policy (Government Systems and USIII)

Welcome to American Systems, USII or USIII with Mr. Bower. I am excited about the upcoming semester and hope you are as well. I am sure you are concerned with your grades. Grades are very important and there are many opportunities for you to do well in my class. My grading is based on a point system. Your goal is to gain as many points as you can in the marking period. Everything we do in class is graded and a certain number of points are awarded for each aspect of the course.

EXAMPLES:

  1. TEST OR EXAMS
    This is a valuable instrument to measure what and how much you have learned. There will be several major exams each marking period. Every test will be announced several days in advance and placed on my weekly homework page. The make-up of the tests will include matching, fill in the blank, multiple choice, and short answer. Every test will also include at least one essay.All tests/exams are worth at least 100 points
  2. PROJECTS
    Military History will give the student the opportunity to work on many projects. There will be individual projects as well as group projects throughout the semester.Group projects are worth 20 to 100 points.
    Individual projects/research papers/ critical reviews will be worth 100 to 200 points.There will be three research papers in this course. There will be one each of the three marking periods.The topics will be:
    A biography
    A battle
    A book report4. Key Historical Event
  3. QUIZZES
    There will be several quizzes a week (usually two or three). Quizzes are a good guide for the student as well as for me to see how students are progressing before a major test. If you miss a quiz, it is very important that you set up a time with me to make the quiz up. Most quizzes are usually made up of 5 to 10 questions. There will be both oral and written quizzes.Quizzes are usually worth 10 to 20 points each.
  4. ACADEMIC PARTICIPATIONHOMEWORKHomework is usually assigned on a daily basis and will be posted on my homework webpage. Homework is very important because it will allow the student to:Prepare for the following day’s lesson
    Review the current day’s lesson
    Identify new vocabulary
    Practice social studies skillsCLASSWORKThis area would include in-class worksheets, video study guides, case study work, etc. All class work will be collected that day with no late class work being accepted.Homework and class work may be worth anywhere from 5 to 20 points

    PARTICIPATION

    Participation is important in Systems and Military History. The participation rubric is attached.

    CURRENT EVENTS

    Each day one student will have the opportunity to present to the class a current event. This report should take no longer than 5 minutes. They may get their current event from any newspaper, magazine, or news Internet page. The student must present me the article the day they give their report to the class. If a student needs a newspaper to get an article – they may see me and I will give them a newspaper. Every Friday there will be a quick 5-question current event quiz on the reports heard that week. Brief summaries of the reports will be written in their journals. If absent, students are responsible for any missed current events.

    Current Events are worth 10 points

    I will always tell you how much an assignment, project, etc. is worth. To figure out your grade, I will count up the entire number of points one can earn. I will then add up the total number of points you gained and divide it by the total number of points possible.

    So, if you earned 910 points out of a total of 926 points (910 divided by 926) you would receive a 98%.

    Once a week (usually on Thursdays) I will show you your average

    I do not give extra credit. Time put forth into extra credit could be time used to prepare for upcoming assignments or tests. I am always willing to help. I will normally be at school by 7:30 a.m. and I usually do not leave before 4:00 p.m. So, please do not hesitate to see me.

 

Classroom Expectation

I expect all students to follow the guidelines established in the Student Handbook.

There are three major areas, however, I would like to emphasize within these guidelines:

  1. Being on time for class.
  2. Being respectful to others and their views.
  3. Being prepared for class on a daily basis.

It is very important for the student to be on time for class. Within a 90 minute block there is much to cover and discuss. Being late is disruptive to the learning environment of others.

Respect is a key in my classroom. Systems / Military History is a class which deals with many discussions and opinions. At times you may disagree with your fellow students on certain topics, but we need to respect their views in order to have an in-depth discussion. “Disagree with the opinion – NOT the person.”

Preparation for class is a must. If a student does not have all of the classroom materials, how can that student accomplish as much as she or he could?

By following these three simple requests, the year will go smoothly and the class will be exciting and rewarding!

Welcome to Mrs. Brown’s 4th Grade Class!

My name is Kelly Brown and I have been teaching at Schick Elementary for 5 years. Most of that time was spent in 5th grade. I look forward to a new adventure in 4th grade this year. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Lycoming College and I am currently working on my Master’s Degree at Lock Haven University. When I am not working on activities and plans for school, I spend all my spare time playing with and chasing around my children, Miles (6) and Norah (3). My husband, Eric, is also a teacher. He teaches Physics, Math, and STEM at Montgomery Area School District. Some of my most important qualities are being patient, caring, kind, adventurous, and hard-working. I strive to give my students the best education they can possibly have and work hard to get each of them actively engaged in the learning process. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, biking, kayaking, playing games, and trying new things.
