We're almost there! This is our last week of school. We will still be working on academics. However, we will also be cleaning up the classroom for the summer. If any families can donate cleaning supplies (Clorox or other brand wipes, paper towels, spray cleaner, etc.), it would be much appreciated.
Honor Roll will be announced at Assembly this Thursday.
This Thursday is our last class movie party. I have placed a sign-up outside our classroom for parents to donate food/water/supplies for the party. If you can not come in to sign up, your child may sign up for you, or you may send me an email.
On Friday, our awards ceremony will be held in church. We will have normal school Mass followed by the awards. After awards, all students must return to their classrooms, but parents may pick them up from their right after the awards. Any students not picked up from the classroom will remain with the class until 12:30 dismissal, at which time they will go to their regular pick-up spot.
Updated on May 19th for the week of May 20th. Edited again on Tuesday, May 21st to add the Honor Roll announcement at Assembly.

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.
