Can my child bring in treats for their birthday?

Yes, but please limit the amount of food you bring in. One treat and a
drink is fine. If you bring in a cake please make sure it is pre-cut and you
provide the plates and forks. There are 25
students in our room.

How can I be more involved with my child's class?

You are more than welcome to come to school (by appointment) and help. You
can work with small
groups, read a book, put up a bulletin board, file papers, or chaperone on a
field trip to name a few.
Please ask if you are interested!

How can my child improve his or her grades in fifth grade?

Fifth grade is a very challenging year academically. It is the transition
between elementary and
middle school. There are a variety of ways that the children can succeed in
this classroom.
1. Students need to complete homework every night. Parents should be
checking the assignment
books and making sure the children are completing everything. Double check
on the website!
2. Students should be reading every night for 20-30 minutes. Help them find
books that interest
them and they choose. Each student is able to pick books from our classroom
and school libraries.
3. Study, study, study! Students should be reviewing the material covered
in class every night. They
are never tested on material not covered in class. Many times students are
asked to take notes in
class. Making flashcards is a great way to study as well.
4. Try your best!
