As we enter the last week of school and your child prepares to “graduate” on to middle school, let me take this time to thank you for sharing your child with me these past 10 months. I have enjoyed watching them learn and grow into fine young ladies and gentlemen. I hope I have prepared them well for the adventures and challenges that await them. Enjoy the short 2 months of summer and I will enjoy seeing you in the middle school hallway next year. A word of advice though: Get a combination lock and practice over the summer!

School Events:

Monday, May 28, 2018 ———— NO SCHOOL——– Memorial Day

Thursday, May 31, 2018 ————- 5th grade End of the year Party and Game Day

Upcoming Tests, Quizzes, and Projects:

Don’t forget to do your Summer Math & Summer Reading Assignments. They will be made available on the school website after June 1st. Remember, ALL students who have a Math IXL username and password are expected to complete the assigned Math IXL skills. Only new students to the school are to do the worksheets.  The assignments are due on the second day of school, August 15th.



Accelerated Reader

Students will be required to read and take 3 Accelerated Reader (AR) Tests and corresponding Vocabulary Quizzes (if available…not every book has one) within his/her assigned reading level range, striving for 80% accuracy, each Quarter. Your child’s range is written in the back of his/her Planner. Reading levels will be adjusted throughout the year.  Three AR Tests with a minimum score of 80% are due at the end of each quarter.  Please encourage your child NOT to wait until the last-minute! Be sure to check out `ARBookFind.com for book recommendations and AR levels.

Homework Policy:

— Neatly done and complete.

— If collected, the student’s name must be on the top right corner to receive full credit.

— If there is no name, there is no credit. Students are reminded to write their name before they turn anything in and it is the first direction given for tests.

— All Math homework is to be done in pencil, never in pen.

— A student will complete a Homework Notice for any assignment that receives a zero. This notice explains why the assignment received a zero and must be signed by a parent and returned the next day.  If the assignment is attached with the situation corrected, the student will receive 50% credit on that assignment instead of a zero.

Class Rules:

— Have all needed books, notebooks, spirals, and supplies at your desk for the portion of day because you will not be allowed to return to the cubby to get something.

— Respect all adults, faculty, staff, volunteers, and students. Speak kindly and treat each other as you want to be treated.

— Raise your hand to ask or answer a question.

— Pencils are to be sharpened at the beginning of the day OR during classwork time.

— Transition quietly from one subject to the next.

—- Remain in your sit. If you need to use the bathroom or get up for another reason, raise your hand to ask for permission.

Class Rules Violations: Any student choosing to not follow the above will complete a Behavior Notification Slip informing their parent of conduct for that day. This slip must be signed by a parent and returned the next day. An accumulation of these slips will affect the student’s conduct grade for the quarter.

— Name on Board

— Check Next to Name

— Lose Last 10 Minutes of Recess
