We did not have school on Monday in observance of Veterans Day. We return to school on Tuesday, and will have a Veterans Day commemoration in the courtyard at 11:11. Parents are welcome to join us as 6th grade leads this honoring of Veterans. Students may wear patriotic casual dress (within uniform code guidelines) for $2.
Report Cards went home on Friday. Please sign and return these report cards with your child. If you would like to meet to discuss your child's grades, please don't hesitate to contact me to set up an appointment.
The Book Fair will be going on all week. Fifth grade students will be attending visiting the fair as a class on Wednesday after Assembly. Families are welcome to visit the fair at other times. Please see the Happenings page of the school website to see the hours of operation for the fair.
At Wednesday's Assembly, we will be recognizing Honor Roll students. The Honor Roll luncheon will be held on Friday during the school day.

A New Year
Fifth grade is a year of much growth and development, both academically and physically. I love seeing the students grow, mature, and become responsible, independent learners. It is hard work to transition into an independent student. To aid parents in helping their fifth graders, I have several sections/pages/links on this website that provide useful tips, tools, and advice. Please feel free to browse all the sections for anything you might find helpful. Also feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
The Importance of Homework
Homework provides much needed practice and feedback to prepare students for the tests that follow. More than just lowering a student's average in a given subject, missing homework assignments may also result in gaps in learning. In the first days of school, students were given papers discussing our classroom policies, including homework policy. Please do not hesitate to stop in if you have any questions.
Fifth Grade Newsletter
The Classroom Notes section at the top of this home page is the fifth grade newsletter. It is usually just a couple paragraphs. It is updated weekly, usually on Sunday nights, but it may be updated earlier in the weekend. As well, the curriculum pages are updated every weekend to reflect what will be taught in the coming week. This advice and reminders section is often left up as reminders, and is not necessarily new. However, if you see a new heading, you know that the information provided under that heading is newly provided.
Check RenWeb Frequently
Please make sure to check your child's grades frequently on RenWeb (at least once a week). If you have any problems accessing RenWeb, please check with the office as soon as possible. RenWeb is your quickest, most up to date access to your child's performance on assignments/tests. If you have any questions about your child's progress, please let me know and we will sit down and discuss your concerns.
Students must follow the dress code as outlined in the Student Handbook. Repeated violations of the dress code will result in a detention. If you have any questions, visit the Dress Code pages of the school website.
