Welcome to 5th Grade at 

James Giles School! 


            5th grade is a special year when your child will go through many changes physically, socially, emotionally, and intellectually. I truly hope that these changes are positive, exciting, and unforgettable. As your child matures he/she will be expected to assume more of the responsibilities for his/her own learning. 5th grade is a crucial time for development in maturity, accountability, and respect; therefore, the integration of those skills with be a part of our daily routine in our classroom.

            Parents/guardians are essential to student success, and I encourage parents/guardians to be actively involved in their children’s education and co-curricular activities. Be assured that I will actively be working along with the 5th grade teaching teams in an effort to help your child reach his/her full potential. Our team approach is designed to assist your child to achieve success. Furthermore, I encourage you to communicate with me throughout the school year. You may reach me via email at wschott@norridge80.net, or you can call the school office and be connected to my classroom line.

            Students having difficulty are encouraged to schedule a time to meet with me before school, after school, or during recess if they are struggling in any subject. I am always open to helping my students in any way - just ask! Also, I post on my website every evening to update parents/guardians on homework from the day or classroom/school announcements. I also use Text Remind, which is a texting application that reaches out to parents/guardians each evening to remind them of homework & any important announcements. I encourage you to check those text message updates, and frequently visit the classroom website to stay up-to-date.

Thank you! Let's have a great year!
