The new school year is underway and we are off to a successful start. We have welcomed two new students to our class, Eleroie and Dietman, who have added a wonderful spark of energy to the classroom.

The school wide Open House is scheduled for August, 27th and I am looking forward to seeing all of my students’ parents that evening. we will discuss upcoming events and I will be asking for a volunteers for our homeroom parent.

Once again each class is  collecting items to put together a themed basket to raffle at the FALL FEST. The 5th grade basket is “Movie Night”. Please send in items like gift cards for local movie theaters, movie size candy, microwave popcorn, chips, dips, sodas, peanuts, jerky, appropriate DVD’s, etc… just to suggest a few ideas.

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.
