Welcome to Fifth Grade! I am very excited to be your child's teacher, and I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
On my teacher page, you will find classroom as well as school news. I will also include important calendar dates and information about special activities.
Invitation Reminder: We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party. Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent. Thank you for your cooperation.
We will be taking PARCC after Spring Break. Students will take ELA tests with their ELA teacher and Math tests with their Math teacher. Our schedule is as follows: 4-4 ELA 10:45-12:40 4-5 ELA 10:45-12:40 4-6 ELA 1:30-3:30 4-10 Math 11-12:40 4-11 Math 10:30-12:30 4-12 Math 10:30-12:30 4-13 Math 11-12:40
We are excited to be using Typing Instructor which is a program that students can also use at home. Log in information is as follows: Usernames for students are their entire first name and last name, no space and capital letters for the first letters of each. Password for all students is typing (all lower case). Example: MickeyMouse Password: typing
