Student Expectations Come to class and be on time. Do all your homework and bring it to school with you on Friday. Be an active learner- participate! Respect others. Ken Garff Reading Challenge- Read 20+ minutes every night.
Balanced Literacy Spelling Vocabulary Development Fluency Comprehension Writing Motivation
Hands-On Science Fifth grade will complete five hands-on science units this year: Chemical and Physical Changes in Matter Land Formations Magnetism and Electricity Earth Materials Heredity
Homework Homework packets for math will be sent home each Monday beginning September 2nd. The packet will contain a one page assignment for each day except Friday. The homework pages will practice what was taught the prior week. Packets are due on Friday.
Supplies Needed for the Classroom Your student is provided with everything they need for a successful school year. Items that would be suitable to donate to the classroom would include, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes, facial tissues, granola bars, or other healthy snacks that don’t expire quickly, new reusable water bottles, or bottled water. It will be very hot the first few weeks of school and a water bottle is recommended for hydration. Trapper keepers and pencil containers are not allowed due to distractions of learning and custodial issues. Students may not use pen on any assignment unless required by the teacher (not even erasable ink). Personal items such as mp3 players, video games, and other toys should be left at home. These types of items may be confiscated and kept until the end of the year, or until a parent or guardian comes to pick it up. Students should always have a book to read at home and at school.
Birthdays You may bring a store bought treat for birthdays. Be sure to bring enough for everyone. We will celebrate summer birthdays on half birthdays.
Bathroom Pass Each student will be expected to use the restroom at the designated times, but a pass is provided for emergencies. There is ten punches per quarter. Students who use their breaks appropriately and never punch their pass will be rewarded.
Classroom Management We will be giving “class money” to reward students. At the end of each quarter students will have the opportunity to bring donations to the class auction. Teachers will also add prizes to the auction. Money can also be taken away when students are not on task. For more serious problems parents will be called and a plan of action will be made. We would like the consequence to fit the misbehavior whenever possible.
Daily Planner Your child will receive a planner to record homework assignments daily. Please check it every night and sign it. You can communicate with us through the planner, email, or by telephoning the school.
