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.Back to Top
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!Back to Top
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!Back to Top
