Dear Students and Families,

Welcome to fifth Grade! I’m excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I’m looking forward to a happy and productive school year.

Curriculum areas we will focus on this year include but are not limited to fractions, United States geography,  the 40 Book Challenge and four types of writing essays. Whole group reading will include the books Little House and  Hoot. Each student will be given a copy of these books in school.

Online resource are available to reinforce curriculum areas such as Quizlet , Sadlier, Schoolbo, and Moby Max . Essays and other assignments  will also be assigned using Google Classroom.  Your child can access these using his/her Google email account which is obtained through school. I will work with your child to make sure this is a successful endeavor.

Our Social Studies  projects will include an Immigration Project due in  January.

Students are asked to  have supplies in school, especially sharpened  pencils and loose leaf. Expo pens will also be used in class this year every day.

My homework policy is Monday through Thursday with an occasional weekend assignment.. All homework will be posted on the whiteboard and on my  website.

Teachers work together as best we can to  not schedule  tests on the same day as another subject. Students will always know in advance of an upcoming test.

Chromebooks must be charged at home. Students are not permitted to charge their Chromebooks in school.

Once again, welcome to fifth grade. Let’s work together to make this the best year ever!
