Title: C. B. Eller Elementary School

C. B. Eller Elementary School
  • Parent and Student Handbook
  • Planning Calendar
  • 2008 2009

Going for the Gold!
  • Dear Parents/Guardians, Students, and Community
  • The summer is over and its time again to have
    another wonderful year at C. B. Eller. I have
    been very busy over the last two months working
    on new projects and initiatives for our teachers
    and students. Even though we did not make AYP
    with our free and reduced subgroup, we made high
    growth. AYP is under No Child Left Behind and
    high growth is North Carolinas standards.
    Overall, we had a great year last year, and I
    believe this is going to be another year of great
    progress. As we move to continue to make C. B.
    Eller the best elementary school, I ask for your
    continued help and support. We are going to need
    to work more closely this year to ensure we make
    AYP at the end of this school year. I believe
    with the changes we made, the support from the
    home, and students love for school and learning
    we are going to make all federal mandates with
    flying colors. It will have to be a team effort.
  • Once again, there are many academic changes that
    will require the staff, parents, and students to
    work together. North Carolina Department of
    Education has been working with counties for the
    last five years to change how schools identify
    exceptional children and work with at-risk
    students. C. B. Eller will begin the initiative
    called Response to Instruction , RtI. Students
    that are struggling or are at-risk will be
    involved in intensive focused instructions to get
    their academics or behaviors up to grade level.
    I have spent eight days learning the new
    procedures and will assist teachers and parents
    in learning how to help their student/child have
    a positive academic experience. The old way of
    identifying students to be served in the
    Exceptional Children's program has been
    completely changed. In the past you heard the
    school personnel use the term Green Folder when
    we were looking at students academic/behavior
    progress. The new language is the RtI process.
    More information will be given throughout the
    year. I believe strongly this is best for
    students and look forward to continuing to learn
    and implement it at C. B. Eller. All elementary
    schools in Wilkes County Schools will be making
    this positive move. We will have individual
    meetings with parents who have students at-risk
    or not performing where they need to be to
    explain how your child will be instructed.
  • Over the last two years, I have heard parents
    concerns about the fourth and fifth grade math
    curriculum, and how they have difficulty helping
    their child. I hired Mrs. Farrelly over the
    summer to develop a parent math handbook. Each
    objective is covered with examples of how you can
    help your child. The State has adopted a new
    math curriculum, but it will not go into effect
    until the 2009-2010 school year. I hope the
    handbook helps you assist your child. I have
    also instructed my teachers to let the students
    bring their math textbooks home.
  • I encourage you to carefully read this handbook
    it provides valuable information on everything
    from new staff, curriculum changes, policies and
    procedures for the school day. Please feel free
    to contact me if you have any questions
    (allenc_at_wilkes.k12.nc.us or 835-5640). I look
    forward to working with you this year, and the
    staff and I will do our best to help each child
    meet his/her academic, social, and emotional
    potential. With a positive home/school
    relationship this will be a great year for your

School Procedures
Free and Reduced Meals Applications for free
and reduced meals will be distributed to every
household during the first days of school. We
urge each household to complete a form. These
completed applications help the school to receive
federal Title I funding, which is a great asset
to our school. All Information will remain
confidential. Cafeteria Prices Meal prices for
Wilkes County Schools for the 2006-2007 school
year will be as follows Breakfast

Adults/Staff Dress Code The purpose of the dress
code is to ensure that a students dress and
appearance promotes a positive learning
environment and does not disrupt the learning of
others or the general operation of the school.
The health and safety of each student is also a
high priority of the Wilkes County School System.
Clothing or accessories that could potentially
be, or perceived to be, threatening to a
students health and safety is strictly
prohibited. The school administration has the
responsibility and right to determine what is
disruptive to the school environment. The
cooperation of school personnel, students, and
parents or guardians is essential in implementing
a meaningful dress code. These decisions will be
made in accordance with, but not limited to, the
following guidelines. Shorts, pants, and skirts
should be a length appropriate to the individual
students physical development Tops should cover
shoulders and midriff Undergarments should not
be visible Shoes must be worn at all
times Headwear (hats, bandanas, visors, etc.) is
not to be worn inside the building Clothing that
promotes or displays violence, illegal substances
for school-aged children, profanity, or obscenity
must be covered. Revealing or provocative
clothing should not be worn. Car Line Please
help keep the students and staff at C.B. Eller
safe by following the car line signs. All
parents or guardians need to go through the car
line when picking up or dropping off students.
Please do not park and then go into the school to
pick up your child, this causes
confusion. Volunteers All volunteers who want
to work with students without the supervision of
a certified staff member must complete a new
volunteer application and background check
release.  For your convenience we have added this
to the WCS web page.  Go to our web page and to
"site map" and then to "volunteerism."  At the
bottom of this screen you will find the volunteer
handbook, the volunteer application and the
background release form. These two forms may be
faxed to us but they must have the volunteer's
signature.  Fax them to Linda Johnson at
667-5607. Those parents who want to be
classroom/media helpers or volunteer in the
classroom and do not want to work individually
with students away from a certified staff member
do not have to fill out a volunteer application.
Visitors To ensure the safety and security
of our students, parents and other visitors are
required to report to the school office to sign
in and receive a visitors pass. Teachers will
ask for a visitors pass if they do not see one.
For security of students, please never use a back
or side door. Please come to the office. Parents
are always welcome and are encouraged to visit
the school for scheduled activities and events
otherwise, parents must call and arrange an
appointment if they wish to speak or conference
with a teacher. Visiting Other Students Home A
student going home with a fellow student must
furnish written permission from his/her parents.
Also, a student taking a fellow student home
with him/her must have written permission from
his/her parents. Notes must be turned into the
office by 815. No phone calls will be accepted
unless it is an emergency. Bus Route and
Operating Policies Bus routes and stops are
planned and established by the school
administrators and the county Director of School
Transportation. Routes are established according
to State guidelines and within the time frame of
the teachers daily schedule so that appropriate
supervision of students is possible. Buses do
not arrive before 730 a.m. and leave before or
by 330p.m.

    release students from the classroom to parents or
    any other person. Any relative or person other

    information about the operation of school during
    inclement weather. PLEASE WATCH FOR TV
  • Attendance
  • Regular attendance is essential to a students
    success in school. Most subjects are taught in
    sequence requiring the understanding of each
    concept in the order of its presentation.
    Persistent absenteeism creates a genuine hardship
    for a student and is regarded as a very serious
    problem. Regular attendance is rewarded during
    quarterly and end of the year awards programs.
  • Attendance Makeup Work and Time
  • Students absent from school are responsible for
    all work and information missed in each class.
    Teachers will work with the students and set
    deadlines for when school work is to be completed
    and turned in for credit. Any work turned in
    after the predetermined deadline will affect
    grades. Make-up time is required for all
    unexcused absences. According to county policy,
    parents will be sent a letter when a student has
    three, six, and ten unexcused absences. If a
    student has more than twelve absences, makeup
    time is required even if the absences are
    excused. A doctors note is required for
    absences which exceed twelve unless extenuating
    circumstances are approved by the School-Wide
    Assistance Team. Educational travel is unexcused
    until all time requirements and class assignments
    are made up. Students and their parents are
    responsible for knowing the attendance policy as
    discussed in the attendance trifold sent home
    with each student. Policy Code 4400
  • Tardy
  • Five (5) unexcused tardies to school shall
    constitute one unexcused absence for makeup
  • Suspensions
  • The absence of a student which results from
    suspension, out of school, for misconduct, will
    not be considered an unexcused absence for the
    purposes of the Compulsory Attendance Law.
    However, the absence will be treated as an
    unexcused absence for purposes of makeup work and
    makeup time.
  • Phone number and address changes
  • Please call or send in new address or phone
    number changes immediately. We need to be able
    to contact parents or guardians immediately in
    case an emergency occurs. This is for the safety

School Procedures
  • Conferences
  • Student/Teacher/Parent conferences are usually
    held twice a year to discuss student progress and
    develop plans for growth. Your child will bring
    home a suggested time for the conference. If
    this time is not convenient, please let your
    childs teacher know and suggest another time.
    We encourage all parents to participate in these
    conferences. Teachers may ask parents to come in
    more frequently to review student progress.

    Students in grades three through five will be
    given the End of Grade Test and the Annual
    Writing Assessment in fourth grade. Information
    concerning the tests will be provided during the
    year. The students in Kindergarten through
    second grades will also be given assessments
    during the school year. The K-2 assessment, DRA,
    will be given three times a year. The purpose of
    the assessments is to provide meaningful
