|Teacher Scott Becker - Fifth Grade (Send e-mail)|
Welcome to Mr. Becker's Class Webpage.
Please use this webpage to access information on what we are currently learning, homework that is due, upcoming projects and assessments, and also any information relevant to our class.
Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.
We are so excited to begin using Microsoft OneNote in our ELA classes! OneNote allows students to access and edit their ELA work from their online ELA binder. Today, your child will be bringing home their log in information on colored paper. Please keep this copy AT HOME for your use. You can also access this information on my teacher page found on the District website. If you have any additional questions, please let me know!
If you would like a text message sent for to you for important information about our class enter this code into your web browser Remind Code rmd.at/ke67c4 or text the message @ke67c4 to the number 81010.

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 childís teacher. Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent. Thank you for your cooperation.
