SNACK TIME Students will have an opportunity to eat a healthy snack each day. Snacks should not interfere with instructional time. Make the snack healthy and one that will give your child energy for learning. Students may keep a bottle of plain water with them at their desk. Snack time will be determined when we see how our day flows.
Parents’ Responsibilities Complete the forms and turn these in tonight. Complete Welcome Packet that will be going home with your child. Sign your child’s agenda nightly. Ask your child’s teachers regarding any questions you may have.

Keeping Parents Informed A fifth grade newsletter will be posted on our class webpages. The newsletter will inform you of the standards the grade level is working on and upcoming events. I will also email a weekly update of class test dates and projects. Please be sure to sign up for these email notifications.
