Cell Phones and Digital Devices
Cell phones will remain TURNED OFF in class and put in the attendance pocket. Digital devices will be for TEACHER DIRECTED SITES ONLY. Please note: neither the school, or I, can be held responsible if your child’s device is stolen or broken at school.
Copyright Laws and Drawing
Art standards demand creation of original artwork. Scholars will not be allowed to draw logos, trademarks, or licensed characters in Mrs. Ostrander’s class, which aligns with 21st Century Learners criteria. If a child includes a copy-written image in their artwork, the child will be asked to start the project over. This also ensures your child’s artwork will be eligible to compete in art contests.
Fidget Spinners--NOT ALLOWED. They take two hands to work, and that means your child cannot create art and use the spinner at the same time.
Book Work or Alternate Assignment
If a scholar is persistently not working/using supplies incorrectly, I may assign a book work assignment, and will contact you. Also, if your child needs a more complex project, I will contact you to discuss an alternate assignment.
