5th grade ROCKS!


Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year! Clicking on the buttons below will take you to Google Classroom, Clever, and Aeries Parent Portal. These are the 3 platforms I will be using this year to assure transparency, communication and support for ALL of my parents and students. This year students will be provided with AVID materials. This includes (3 ring binder, 5 tab dividers, clear pencil pouch, highlighter and spiral notebooks) I have included a class supply list of items that I am recommending be purchased to aide in student success. I am looking forward to a fantastic year!

Clever is an easy way for your student to access all their learning applications. With Clever, you only have to remember one username and password. Parents, here is where you will find parent resources, RUSD Digital Tools, teacher postings of informative documents etc. This site will work much like my "website" or "information hub".

The AERIES Parent Portal is where parents and students can find up-to-date information about grades and attendance online. AERIES is also where you have access to the AERIES Communication tab that allows you to communicate with the teacher through messaging and announcements. I encourage both parents and students to check AERIES Gradebook frequently to stay updated on academic progress.

Google Classroom is where all of the class assignments, homework, assessments will be posted and turned in. This is also where all of my class announcements will be posted. Parents, please review announcements and activity in Google Classroom frequently. Students, you are expected to log in daily to complete assigned work.
