Welcome to 5th Grade

I am pleased to welcome you to the 2018 - 2019 school year! I am looking forward to having your child as a student. Fifth grade is such a fun year with so many wonderful learning activities to celebrate. In order to have a fun year, my most important goal is to create a family of learners in my classroom. I am committed to creating a classroom environment where your child is a valued, trusted, and integral part of our family of learners. In order to accomplish this, I have planned a variety of activities to emphasize and reinforce this goal. It is my hope that you will support and encourage this vision at home.

Grading Policy

In this classroom, we utilize standards-based grading. This reporting system will provide you, your child, and your child’s future teachers with more detailed information than a traditional letter grade. Instead of a letter grade that encompasses months of different skills, your child will receive a proficiency score for each learning target, which will indicate your child’s strength and weaknesses in each skill.
