Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the class code for Scholastic Books online ordering?
    • J428Q
  • What is the best way to reach Mrs. Kinderwater?
    • christine.kinderwater@pennmanor.net
  • What happens if homework is not completed?
    • If a student chooses to have incomplete homework, they will be required to complete it at the homework table during lunch.  If it is a graded assignment, student will lose 10% of their grade for each day the assignment is late.
  • What are class points?
    • The class is rewarded for positive whole class behavior at the end of each day. There is a class goal for each month.  If the class reaches their goal, they are rewarded with a prize voted on by the students. As for individual behavior issues, we use a tally/strike system.  A student earns a tally for breaking a rule or misbehavior as outlined in our class rules.  For every three tallies a student gets a strike.  Just as in baseball – three strikes you’re out.  That means the student does not participate in the class reward at the end of the month.
  • What is the schedule for Spelling tests?
    •  I typically assign the new spelling words and an independent practice packet due on the Thursday of that week, and the test is the following Friday.  Students are to record all due dates in their planners.
  • Do I need to sign my child’s planner?
    • I believe that 6th grade students should be responsible for their planners.  We take time each day to write assignments and important dates in the planners. Please ask to see your child’s planner but you do not need to sign it each night for me.
