Grade 5F Father Turcotte School

Welcome to the 5F class page!
Welcome back to all the Grade 4 students from 4P who are now in Grade 5 and also welcome to students who are new at Father Turcotte School!  I look forward to a fun year of learning with the students in Grade 5 and having lots of interesting discussions as we begin our learning journey together in 5F!  It will take a while to set up routines and communicate expectations, but my goal is to see all students improve and succeed!

We did a great job last school year in achieving our goal of having all students improve their reading skills.  I hope that parents will continue to make sure that students spend at least 20 minutes reading each school night.  I will begin sending Math and Spelling for homework toward the end of September.

If students require tutoring or extra help with math, reading or writing, I am free to work with kids Tuesday and Thursday after school from 3:30 to 4:30pm.

For additional reminders about upcoming events and important dates, please see the bottom of the page!
A reminder to parents that Father Turcotte School is an APPLE School, so I have been encouraging students to drink water in class and not bring sugary juices and sports drinks.  Please check out the APPLE School link on the school home page to check out information about healthy choices.  When sending lunches and snacks to school, please make sure that students are bringing nut free food items, because there are nut allergies in our class.  As a Leader in Me school, we are teaching students 7 habits that will have a positive influence in their lives.   We want students to make good choices that will keep them on a path to success!

Turcotte School has secured funding for a nutrition program.  Starting in September, all students will be offered breakfast on Monday, Wednesday and Friday (when there is school).  Lunch will be offered on Tuesday and Thursday.  This is a free program!!

I also encourage you to remind your children not to bring their electronic devices to school as we are concerned with lost or damaged items.  As well, we are trying to promote interactions between kids and reduce screen time.
Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns!
