Rules and Procedures

Dear Parent,                                                    August  2014


I would like to introduce myself.  My name is Mrs. Joanie Milleville and I am your child’s Intervention Specialist for Reading, Phonics, Spelling and English.    I service both the third and fourth grade this school year.


My Qualifications:

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in with a B.S. in Elementary Education and University of Akron with my Master’s Degree in Special Education. I have a Reading Endorsement from Walsh University.  In all degrees I graduated with a 4.0 GPA.   I have an Ohio teaching license for Preschool to Fifth grade regular classroom and Intervention Specialist K-12.  I am highly qualified to provide special education services for your child.   


Class Rules:

  • Treat others the way you want to be treated.

  • Respect people, property, and yourself.

  • Keep your hands and feet to yourself.


    Behavior Plan:

    A behavior flip card system will be used to monitor behavior.

  • Green = Great Behavior

  • Yellow = 10 minute detention

  • Orange = 20 minute detention

  • Red = 30 minutes detention with email to parents


    Positive Reinforcement:

    I will be using a positive behavior sticker system to reward good behavior. 

  • A sticker will be given daily for each student that does not flip a card.

  • Twenty-five stickers win a trip to the treasure box


  • Raz-books - Homework - Grade

  • Your child must read 2 Raz-books online and complete the quizzes with 80% accuaracy.

  • The student is to read the story ORALLY.

  •   The quizzes will be averaged together for a weekly reading grade.

  • It is important that your child reads to you each evening as it will have a huge influence on their reading grade and overall reading growth.

    1000 Word  Challenge

    The students will be having a whole class challenge of learning to read their word lists.

  • Each student will have a reading list developed for them.  I often write these down and put them in your child's planner.  I usually list about 10 words that they need to work on.  Please have your child practice these.

  • Once ALL students can pass their reading lists, the students will celebrate with an ice cream party!!!

  • The 1000 Word Challenge words can be found in your child's Homework Notebook.


  • Your child will be expected to be able to READ, RECOGNIZE, and WRITE each spelling word for a grade.

  • Spelling words for the year are from the schoolwide FUNdations program.  The words can be found in your child's Homework Notebook.

  • It is important that you quiz your child each evening over their spelling word list.


    Most of the testing is on Friday.  It is important that your child is present for the testing.  Please try to schedule doctor, dentist and other appointments on different days.  If your child misses the test on Friday they will be tested on Monday and unfortunately most students don’t do as well as they would have if they had taken it on Friday after the five day review of the material.

  • Supplies

    I provide the majority of supplies for my classroom in the areas of paper, glue, pencils, pens, and crayons; however there are a few things that I need the children to provide:


  • Packet of dry erase markers marked Milleville.

  • 1 container of disinfectant wipes marked Milleville

  • Package of post-it notes marked Milleville

  • 2 Boxes of tissues marked Milleville


    These supplies will remain in my room and be used as a community.  This is in addition to whatever their homeroom teacher wishes them to have.  School boxes are not to be brought to the resource room.

    The school will provide a red binder, however the parent may need to replace this over the winter break.  Please check the condition of your child’s binder at that time.



    A Homework Notebook is sent home with the parents at Open House.  This notebook has all the homework in it for the entire school year.  It is the parent's responisiblity to keep track of this notebook and control its management.  If this notebook is lost then it is the parent's responsibility to print the pages off themselves since the paper allotment has been used.


    My primary form of communication is through email.  I will send you personal emails about your child’s successes and any concerns that I might want you to know about.  Please make sure that your child brings me your email address because this is my standard form of parental communication.

    It is vital that parents check the weekly newsletter in my online classroom, to help your child keep up with what is going on in my classes.


    IEP Meetings

    Most meetings will occur during the school day when all teachers involved can attend.   The school will be contacting you to set up dates and times for these meetings in advance so that you can make arrangements to attend.  Parent input is vital in putting together a sound educational plan for the student.


    I have high expectations and I know that if we work together your child will have a successful academic year.


    Thank you,

    Mrs. Joanie Milleville
