Dear Fifth Grade Students and Parents,
Welcome to the Grade 5 website! We hope this will be a valuable resource for you during your journey through the last year of elementary school. We encourage you to contact us frequently with comments, questions, and suggestions to help us constantly improve this platform of communication.
We team-teach with the fifth graders. We have assigned homerooms – but all students have both of us. In addition, we have student teachers at times, allowing us to have smaller learning groups throughout the day. We all work as a team, along with our ESL, literacy, and resource teachers – and you. Please never underestimate the importance of parents and students as a part of this team. Each of us has equal responsibility for our fifth graders’ learning. Students will benefit from the combined strengths and personalities of all of us!
Our e-mail addresses are linked to our signatures below, and this is the most reliable and time-efficient way to contact us. We request that your communications be sent to all three of us – always include all of our addresses in the address box. Students and parents, use e-mail to ask questions about homework, or to send us your homework electronically*.
Parents, e-mail us with questions, concerns, suggestions, or Exchange Page responses. We guarantee a prompt response.
Be sure to check out the fifth grade Resources. We have researched hundreds of web pages that connect with the fifth grade curriculum. Feel free to send us new links that you discover as we go through the year.
We look forward to an exciting year together! Stay in touch!
Best wishes to you all,
The Fifth grade teaching team
*Homework may be done through email or using Microsoft Word to be sent as attachments. We may not be able to open other applications. Always include your name and date on the homework document, not just in your email. Thanks!
