Leadership Lunch




In reading I strive to increase the reading capabilities of all students through school-wide reading programs, literacy materials and resources, and ongoing collaboration with classroom teachers, parents and administrators.  No subject is as important as reading. Students will use their reading skills whether they're in science, social studies or math class.


Homework:  Read their AR book each night for 20 minutes and Practice the Weekly Fluency 




Homework:  Check planner each evening for Reading and Math HW

-Can you re-read that?
-Can you say it another way?
-What is another word that might fit here?
Prompts to help the student recognize structure errors…
Errors with Letters/Sounds

Can you point to ____?
Do you see a chunk in that word that you know?

Good readers are thinking about what they are reading and will stop when something doesn't sound right or look right.









I am very excited that this year our school has become a “Leader in Me” School. Based on a program created by Franklin Covey, Your child will be learning the 7 habits of highly effective people.  You might hear your child referring to them at home.  Our entire school will be involved in this effort, and it will become a part of Trafalgar’s values and core beliefs that EVERY child can be a LEADER!!  We will help your child find their strengths and empower them to SHINE! 




Habit 1: Be Proactive


Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind


Habit 3: Put First Things First


Habit 4: Think Win-Win


Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood


Habit 6: Synergize


Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw





Welcome to 5th grade. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year. Together we can help your child achieve success with an enjoyable and productive year.  In order to provide my students with the excellent educational climate they deserve, I will be using the following Behavior Plan. It follows the principles of our school-wide Positive Behavior Support plan. Every child has the right to learn and I will help all of my children achieve that goal in a safe and caring environment.  Planners are stamped each morning with the expectation of a great day. Any problems will be noted beside that stamp. Please be sure to check and sign your child’s planner every evening. Feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.


Be respectful.
Be responsible.
Be safe.
Be a learner.
