Welcome to Mrs. Edwards's Class

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your child this year. We have all grown in many ways and I wish each of my students much success in the future! 

I have added a few links for some math games that are not Everyday Math but will still help your child review some of the math concepts and skills we have worked on in class. These will be found under Math Links or under Resources. 

Welcome to our fifth grade class at South Hill Elementary School. I am Betty Edwards. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Special Education from Slippery Rock University and my Master of Education, Reading Specialist degree from Longwood University. This is my ninth year teaching fifth grade at South Hill Elementary. I enjoy teaching and am looking forward to a great year with my students!
Please use this site to find homework assignments and test dates, updates about classroom activities, and dates for future events or activities.
On the Calendar page you will find homework assignments  as well as important dates posted each week.  If your child forgets to bring home his/her science notebook, you may use the Resources page to find the current vocabulary list. I will be posting other documents such as permission forms for trips on this page as well.
Throughout the year I will be adding math and science links that offer a chance for your child to review topics we are studying in class. These links may be for games or websites that support the science or math curriculum. I have also posted a link for the Everyday Math site under the math links where your child can access the math games and an online version of the math textbook. Please be assured that I will preview all sites to be sure they are appropriate for student use before adding links.
If you have suggestions for items you would like to see posted on these pages or if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at school. My school e-mail is bedwards@mcpsweb.org  and the school phone number is 434 447-8134. The best time to reach me by phone is from 8:30-9:00 or after 3:15.
