Google Classroom

We are blessed at HES for every 5th grader to have their own Chromebook to use during the school day. This means that a majority of our school work is completed online. One of the main websites we use in our class for our assignments and announcements is Google Classroom. The calendar to the right lists any assignments that are in Google Classroom. Parents are also encouraged to sign up for a parent account that will allow them to see their student's work in Google Classroom.


Students are expected to record ELA Homework and Tests in their agenda the first day of each school week. We do this together. We spend about 10 minutes reviewing the assignments and discussing expectations as the students write it down. The student agenda should be your first place to look each evening. These items are also posted in the classroom throughout the week on our board. Reading a chapter book for at least 20 minutes is a nightly expectation.

Scholastic Online

We LOVE books in 5th Grade, and with Scholastic we ALL win! With every student purchase, we earn points for free books for our class library. With each of our orders, I allow students to pick out which books we should order for our class library with these points. We then wait anxiously for that red box to arrive! Please help us, by purchasing books for your family through our class store!
