Welcome to 5th Grade!
Communication between teacher and parent is extremely important to ensure your child’s academic success. Please feel free to contact us anytime. However, please understand that we have limited time to check e-mail and voicemail; we will respond to you as soon as time allows. Check Skyward on a regular basis in order to monitor your child’s progress. Let’s make this a fantastic year together!
As the world of technology changes, the 5th grade teachers are utilizing Google Classroom for many assignments instead of relying on this website for links to specific online activities. If you're not familiar with Google Classroom, please take a moment have your child show you. classroom.google.com
Important Note: Please be sure your child brings a note with them in the morning about an early dismissal from school, doctor's appointment, etc. This will minimize the interruptions to classroom instruction with calls from the office. When it is not possible to send this note with your child, please contact the office. E-mails to the teacher may not be read in time to make necessary arrangements.
