Happy Weekend!

August19

We’ve had a great first full week of school.  In addition to our regular academic subjects, students have been learning about character skills.  One important character skill is being prepared.  Students have been taught procedures to help them succeed in school and they have tools such as their assignment notebooks and accordion files to help them stay organized.  Students need to bring home both of these items each night to be able to complete homework assignments.  Student have also been instructed to always look at the supply list outside of each classroom to get what they need for class.  We have given a lot of grace the first two weeks, but starting Monday, we will be holding the students accountable and they will have the consequences of negative token punches for not being prepared.  If your child gets a token punch for not being prepared, please encourage them to work on this skill and understand that it should get better as they build a routine.

Please mark your calendar for this Wednesday, August 24th from 5:30-6:15 to come and meet us and learn more about our classroom policies and procedures.  We want to work with you to help your child have an incredible 5th grade experience!  Enjoy your weekend!

Welcome!
