Classroom Policies

New to Ms. Houghton’s class? Need a refresher on classroom expectations? You’ve come to the right place.

Homework Policy

Students have homework Monday through Thursday.

More information will be added at a later date.

Uniform Policy

We follow Wildwood’s official school uniform. Ms. Houghton is occasionally lax on the sock rule. Graphic hoodies and patterned long-sleeve undershirts are pretty popular status symbols lately, so she asks that if students are chilly and want to wear a hoodie or long-sleeve undershirts in the classroom, please have it be solid navy or white.

Art is scheduled for day 6, so you might want your students to wear older clothes on these days. PE happens on days 3 and 5, so suitable shoes are essential. Students wear their regular classroom uniforms for PE.

It rains a lot in Western Washington. If you have a student who loves to play in the mud and in puddles, please consider bringing in a spare set of clothes for them. The nurse’s office has some extra clothes in the event of an emergency, but the supply is often tapped on soggy days.

Birthday Policy

Will be completed at a later date.

Absence Policy

If your student is going to miss school, please let the office know ahead of time by calling the absence line at (253) 945-4403 or by writing a note. You can also contact our office staff by sending an e-mail to If your family is planning a trip, consider checking the FWPS calendar to line it up close to a district break. Please give the office staff and Ms. Houghton two weeks advance notice so she can prepare lesson materials.

Banned Book Policy

Our class reads books that are available in the FWPS school library system. If you have a concern with a book being studied in class, please contact Ms. Houghton as soon as possible so an alternate text can be made available for your student.

Wildcat Leaders / Self-Managers

More information will be added at a later date.

Discipline Policy

More information will be added at a later date.
