The fact that you are here means you are a parent that is actively involved in your child's education. Though you may not see
the effects of your support everyday, rest assured that I do.
And for that I thank you.
Dear Parents . . . . .
Welcome to fifth grade. I want to emphasize how important your involvement is in your child's education. Take advantage of the resources within this Website, and feel free to contact me with any questions. As you stay involved, behavior concerns will be nil and your child, his/her classmates, and I can focus on our purpose - education. An easy way to make sure your child knows you are interested is to check the items which your child is responsible for:
- Planner \ Assignment book (should be initialed daily and your child should get this signed every weekend)
- Weekly papers (sent home on Fridays)
- Reading log
-In fifth grade we try to instill a sense of responsibility in the students. We do this by holding the students accountable for their actions or lack there of. Students will suffer the consequences of their irresponsible actions, and by the same token will be rewarded for their positive behaviors. I thank you ahead of time for encouraging responsibility and other positive behaviors in your child. Your active role in your child's education will be evident through the student's efforts.
The Game-Time Spectacular
Students that are responsible can
make it to the Game-Time Spectacular.
Here is how it works: Each student can
earn 2 stamps a day for:
1. Having their planner
signed with their homework recorded
2. Not having a strike
Each student with 32 stamps in four weeks
earns the Game-Time Spectacular!!!!
Other students work on missed work,
read, or work on extra
work in another classroom.
