Useful Links Welcome to Mr Pizarro Website



Dear parent, This web site has been designed for the only purpose of helping students to understand better some concepts in Language and math. In addition, they would be able to get some support for their homework. For those students who would like to practice I will have some worksheet with exercises for the different topics in language and math taught in the classroom. Go to classroom resources. Also go to useful links to practice reading, spelling and math.

Bathroom rules


Students can and should be able to use the restroom when necessary.  However, in order to motivate students to use the bathroom at recess time, they are charged 10 minutes at recess whenever they use class time to use the bathroom.  In addition, if a student asks to use the restroom within 15 minutes after class has begun or after a recess, that student will stay 10 minutes .  If there is a medical problem I should be made aware of, please let me know and we will work something out.



Homework Policy

The purpose of homework is to review, practice skills taught in class, and to prepare students for weekly tests.  Expect your child to bring home the following homework Monday through Thursday:

  • Monday:  spelling words in alphabetical order, math practice sheet, read 30 minutes and log it into a reading log, timed fluency practice
  • Tuesday:  vocabulary words (part of speech, definition, and sentence); math practice sheet, read 30 minutes and log it into a reading log, timed fluency practice

Volunteers would be appreciated.  If you can volunteer, please indicate on the sign-in sheet a day and time that you can come in on a regular basis.



School policy is that celebrations need to take place during lunch time.  Students will eat in class and will participate in an activity for the remainder of the hour.  Parent(s) are responsible for organizing any celebrations. 


Supplies and Donations

The school provided students with basic supplies to use in class.  They must have the same basic supplies available at home to complete homework.
