Welcome to 5th Grade!





Welcome to Mr. Linke's class website. Here you can find important event dates, homework, documents to download, and more. Thanks for visiting! 


Achieve 3000: Students are required to complete a total of two (2) Achieve 3000 articles as homework each week. The articles are assigned on Monday and must be completed by Sunday night at 11:59 pm. If the articles are not completed by then, then they will not register on the report that I print following morning. In order to count as a completed article, students must complete the following sections: Before Reading Poll, Article (students must complete 1 reading connection per paragraph), Activity, After Reading Poll, and the Math section (if Math is available). This assignment typically takes around 30-40 minutes to complete. Students must earn at least a 75% on the activity in order for it to be considered "passing".  To access your student's Achieve 3000 profile please click HERE.

PARENT MEETINGS: I am more than happy to meet with parents when the need arises. However, I request that you contact me 24-48 hours prior in order to check for scheduling. Due to the fact that this is my first year at Skinner, I have a high volume of meetings that I must attend after school. I want each parent to feel valued and to feel as though they are being heard. The best way to make sure that everyone feels this way is to schedule meetings in advance. Thank you all for your cooperation in advance!

BIRTHDAY TREATS: Due to CPS Policy, students are not allowed to have sweets in school outside of the 2 parties that occur throughout the school year. If you would like to send in a healthy treat for your students birthday (i.e. fruits or vegetables), you are more than welcome to do so. Please refrain from sending anything type of nut though due to allergies. 

Google Account Policy: Student Google Accounts are for school work only. Any material and communication that happens through the account, during, or after, school hours must be school appropriate. Students should never share their Username or Password with anyone.
