We are trying to teach the students to be responsible to prepare them for their move to middle school next year. It is the students' responsibility to keep up with and turn in all work/assignments. Any work not turned in will receive a zero. If they are absent, they are responsible for getting any make-up work completed. They have as many days as they were absent to complete the work. Also, spotlight students are responsible for getting their work and turning it in.

Graded paper folders are sent home every Thursday. Please sign the folder, any graded papers below a C, and return all graded papers. The graded papers sent home is our means to communicate how your child is doing in class and should reflect the grades seen in Power School. 

Newsletters are sent home on Thursdays/Fridays. Please watch for these as it provides information for the upcoming week. 

The 5th grade curriculum is more challenging, and is preparing your child for their move to the Middle School next year. We aim to teach them about responsibilities, following instructions, and properly preparing for tests. It is important that your child study all vocabulary, notes, and skills learned during lessons, as well as understanding how to reason and apply.
