Thank you for joining us this year. Our teaching team is excited to work with you this year. Please reach out throughout the school year and join us during the year for school activities. We'd love to see you. 


    Fifth graders are expected to complete homework each night. Families can expect a predictable assignment each evening, so an assignment book is not necessary. Please support your child by helping to find the time and space to complete homework successfully and checking ELA (English/Language Arts) folders to see what needs to be done.

    Children should spend at least 30 minutes each day reading and responding to texts. Most of the time, students will spend time reading novels at home. Sometimes, they may bring home articles/texts with questions to read or worksheets to complete, but most of that work will be done during class time. Expect your child to bring home an ELA folder each day that shows their reading goals and what they're working on each quarter. Families can help by asking their students about what they're reading and encouraging them to progress on a daily basis.
    For math, students should spend 20 minutes each evening practicing basic facts, watching lesson videos, and completing online math assignments. These will review what was taught in the classroom each day.

    Sometimes, children may need to complete schoolwork that wasn't done during the day due to an absence or time out of the classroom (visit to nurse, behavorial/emotional issue, time with another teacher/principal, etc.). This homework will take additional time, so we encourage students to attend school daily and stay in class as much as possible during the day.
