 Welcome to Fifth Grade!


Important things to know about our class:


Classwork - Now that students in Group A and B are back 5 days a week, Google Classroom will not be used exclusively, however, we still will utilize it for some assignments.  It is not necessary to check it every day for assignments to work on at home.  I will notify you of activities or assignments that need to be done at home on your weekly homework sheet.


Homework - Homework will be recorded in your child's planner. The planner is located in their daily communication binder. A weekly homework sheet will be sent home for ELA. Please check your child's ELA folder in their binder for this sheet. Students should work on it a little each day. Quizes/test for science and social studies will be announced prior to the test date and students should be using their interactive notebooks to study for these quizes/tests.


Office Hours- I have a daily planning period from 8:00 AM-8:30 AM and on Fridays from 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM.  I will try to respond to Remind messages and emails during these times or from 3:30 PM-4:00 PM after school.


Submitting Digital Assignments/Google Classroom Activities- If you have trouble completing or attaching assignments in Google Classroom, please use Remind instead.  I am keeping track of virtual learning through Remind rather than email in order to avoid "losing" assignments in the many daily email messages.  If you haven't signed up for Remind, PLEASE take a moment and do so!
