“I have the strength for everything through him who empowers me.”
Updated: May 27, 2021
Congratulations, 5th grade, or should I say Middle Schoolers? You did it! 2020-2021 was an unusual year and through PERSERVERENCE, you came through it like champions. Now is the time to relax celebrate your achievement and enjoy the summer. Don’t get too comfortable. I hate to remind you that you do have summer assignments to complete. Remember all that we talked about this year as I tried my best to prepare you for Middle School. Don’t wait until the last moment to begin, because it will seem like a formidable task. Do a little each day and before you know it you will be done.
Thank you very much 5th grade Class of 2021 for my gifts. I love the Tory Burch wallet and will enjoy using the water bottle with my name on it. The Target gift card will come in handy and I will have no problem using that. It will look good in my new wallet.
Enjoy your Summer and don’t forget that I”ll be checking on you in the middle school hallway.

— Neatly done and complete.

— 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.
— 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.
