LOOKING AHEAD....

PLEASE READ THIS LETTER ABOUT SNACKS AND SOME FRIENDLY REMINDERS FOR OUR 5W CREW:

9/26/16

Dear Parents/Guardians of our 5W Crew:

HEALTHY, SIMPLE SNACK:

Effective Monday, 9/26/16, 5W students may eat a healthy, simple snack after we come back from special at 9:35 a.m. These are some guidelines that you need to be aware of and abide by:

  • Several students in our 5W Crew have allergies to nuts; therefore, please do not send in any types of snacks with peanuts or any nut type products.
  • The snack needs to be simple and healthy, and needs to be done in 5-7 minutes while students are still working. Students need to clean up after themselves, and are to leave no leftovers inside desks or surrounding area or floor. Please do not send in an apple since there is not enough time to eat the entire fruit.
  • Students need to have this snack on their desk at homeroom time and leave it on top of the desk until we return from special. No snacks are to be dropped off at the office.  Snack only takes place from 9:40---9:47.
  • Students are not to share food with classmates as a safeguard to those with allergies.
  • Students may continue to drink clear water; however, water bottles are only refilled at lunch time (12:00—12:30). No Gatorade/Sports type drinks, colored water, or fruit infused water are permitted in the classroom during the day.

REMINDERS:

  • Please leave all extra supplies and toys at home. We have very little room in the classroom.
  • All stuffed toys need to be kept at home, and not taken to recess.
  • Any electronic device, such as cell phones are to be kept in the backpacks and turned off. Lately, several phones are on and receiving signals of incoming calls and/or text messages. Please instruct your child to leave it turned off in their backpack. Also, try not to text or call your child during class time. They do not have access to their phones during the day.  If it is an emergency, please call the office and leave a message. 
  • No electronic device or cell phone is to be out at recess and/or lunch. 
  • PLEASE follow all School Rules and 5W Classroom Rules, especially off task excessive talking needs to stop.
  • If a child forgets his lunch or glasses, he may call from the classroom to have someone drop them off. Please do not drop off planners, homework, books or other assignments. This is the student’s responsibility.   Thank you for your cooperation here. 
  • Please refer to our District web page calendar, handbook, and our 5W webpage. Stay informed with upcoming events, homework, and school district policies.  Homework is posted daily on the 5W webpage. 5W, also writes down their homework daily after lunch together in their planners. 
  • If you have any questions and/or concerns, please contact Mrs. Worosz directly by e-mail, note in the planner, phone message, or note.  Communication is the key!

A copy of this letter will be coming home for you to sign and send back the portion that you are aware of the snack time in 5W, the allergies, and other reminders. 

Thank you for your time, cooperation and support with our 5W students.

 

Yours in teaching,

 

Mrs. Susan Worosz

September 14, 2016

 

Dear Parents and Guardians of our 5W Crew,

 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, and invite you to our Back to School Program tonight.  My name is Mrs. Susan Worosz,  and I am so excited to be your child’s 5th grade teacher.  During the year, I will be your child’s facilitator in learning.  

This is my 16 th year teaching at Frog Pond Elementary School. I taught seven years at the sixth grade level, and this is my ninth year at fifth grade. Before my time here, I taught  eight years  6th and 5th grade in Southampton, Pennsylvania and Haddonfield, New Jersey.   I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a minor in Elementary Education from Chestnut Hill College. I earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at both Temple University and Chestnut Hill College.   I am a certified K-8 teacher for the State of New Jersey. I also have a Master’s Degree under the eMINTS program which combines technology and constructivist pedagogy. For the 2015-16 school year, I was recognized as Frog Pond’s Teacher of the Year for the State of New Jersey. Currently, I represent  our fifth grade team as LEAD teacher for our district.

 

Throughout the year, it is important to have a strong parent-teacher relationship.  If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.  You can e-mail me at sworosz@lehsd.k12.nj.us  or call me at (609)-296-1719 ext  2648.  Also, please check the 5W’s school’s website often for homework assignments, as well as important updates and helpful information. Write a note in your child’s planner or just send in a note.  Together, we can help your child  develop better strategies to learn, become more organized and independent, and apply or transfer their skills.

 

I am thrilled to be embarking on this year’s journey with your children, OUR 5W Crew!  I look forward to watching them learn, grow and have a fantastic, memorable time in 5th  grade! This Wednesday evening, September 14th at 6:00 p.m., I look forward to meeting you at Back to School Night. At that time, I will present my curriculum plans and expectations for your child’s year.

 

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Susan Worosz, M.Ed., M.Ed.

Dear  _________________ of our 5-W Crew:  

 

(I have posted this letter on line, too! Please see our district web page and go to Mrs. Worosz’s web page.)

 

Welcome to our fifth grade class at Frog Pond Elementary School!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I have been extremely busy preparing for your arrival in Room 404 to sail into learning adventures. I am so happy that you have been assigned to our 5W CREW.  I can’t wait to meet all of you and find out who you are. This will be an exciting year of learning. Our first day is Wednesday, September 7th.  It is a full day, so please get plenty of sleep and a healthy breakfast.  Plan to bring your lunch, if you are not buying it.

 

Please bring with you on the first day the following 5-W supplies:  The list is simple.

 

  • 1 LARGE backpack (Label with your name!)

  • FIVE  sharpened pencils with erasers daily. (This eliminates the need for sharpening.)

  • Large zippered canvas pencil case (Label with your name!) (NO PLASTIC BOXES)

  • 1~~ black or blue stick pen    1~~red stick pen (NO GEL PENS, MARKERS, OR SHARPIES) (No clicktype pens) Do not use erasable pens!

  • 1 binder (1” ONLY) Make sure there are inside pockets—left and right. IT NEEDS TO BE ONE INCH ONLY; IT NEEDS TO FIT IN OUR DESK! PLEASE FOLLOW THIS REQUIREMENT. NO ZIPPERED BINDERS OR ONES GREATER THAN 1 INCH, these will be sent home for safekeeping to file papers at home.)

  • 4 EXTRA LARGE~~JUMBO book SOCKS,OR  brown bags, OR book covers.  All textbooks need to be covered by Friday, 9/16.  Please do not adhere covers to the text books.

  • 30 sheets of loose leaf—Consider college ruled paper. (This will encourage you to write smaller, a 5th grade expectation.) Keep the rest at home in your “homework space”.

 

We will set up our  1 inch SOAR binder the first day, so please be ready with the above items.  Again, only a 1 inchbinder will be needed. We have no room in our desk to store anything larger. I also try to keep your book bags light in weight!  

 

I will provide clear plastic sleeve protectors, pocket dividers for SOAR, crayons, colored pencils, subject folders for classroom use, a weekly take home folder, dry erase boards and markers, rulers, markers, folders, scissors, tissues, glue, and glue sticks for  your use in the classroom.  Please leave all other binders, notebooks, folders, plastic boxes, toys, electronics, and other supplies at home.  Let’s keep it simple. This will help our organizational skills.  

 

I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, September 7thas we sail into a year of new adventures.
