Student Absences
Please send us an email or a note when your child has been absent. Parents have four school days to send in an excuse note before the absence is marked unexcused.
Students are allowed to bring a healthy snack. (no "messy snacks")

If you bring lunch to your child, please be on time. We cannot allow the kids to have additional time to eat.

Students may bring store bought cupcakes or cookies for their birthday, and they will be eaten in the classroom after lunch. Please bring napkins for each student in your child's class. Cupcakes and cookies must be checked in with the office by a parent.

All classes have 28 students.
Snacks, Lunch and Birthdays
Language Arts and Reading
DRA- students are tested to find their reading level
at the beginning of year and end of the year. You will see your child's DRA scores on the 1st and last report cards.

Reading is an important skill that is used in all subjects. We hope the kids will read for pleasure as much as possible.

Occasionally reading passages will be sent as homework.

Social Studies
In 5th Grade we study the foundations of our nation, the Thirteen Colonies, Revolutionary War, Westward
Expansion, the Civil War, and patriotic symbols of the United States.
Math
Math homework will be given daily.

Math homework can be found on your teacher's website.

Students will have access to the online textbook, but the best source for assistance will be their math notebook. We encourage the students to take their math notebooks home each night to assist with homework and as a study aid for tests.

Review sheets will be given for all tests.

Please help us remind the students that studying is homework.
Science
Students will be creating their own Interactive Science Notebook. Notebooks will be graded after each unit. Students are responsible for completing all assigned activities in this notebook. This notebook will be their study guide for tests.

Every 5th grade student is expected to
participate in science fair.

More information on the science fair will
come home in late November or early
December.
