I would like to take this time to provide you with some basic information that you and your child need to know in order to be fully prepared for the school year. Please read the following information with your child. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Our school year is divided into semesters of approximately sixteen weeks each. During each semester all core subjects will be aligned with the Common Core Standards. These standards will guide the fifth grade curriculum. Report cards will reflect student progress in achieving these standards.

In general, homework is assigned Monday through Thursday. Work that is not completed may be assigned as weekend homework. Each night you can expect that your child will be asked to complete a reading assignment and some kind of writing assignment in their Reading Logs. In addition to these assignments students will be expected to complete book projects and study for vocabulary and content quizzes and tests.
