Welcome to fifth grade! I am so excited to begin the 2015-2016 school year! I will be teaching Math, Science, Social Studies, Spelling, and Grammar this year. In Math, your child will be learning about expressions, patterns, the place value system, fractions, volume, and geometry. The students will be creating projects and doing experiments in Science and Social Studies. Fifth grade will be a fun and wonderful year for your child!

Our specials schedule is:
Monday - Art
Tuesday - No special/Early dismissal at 1:55 PM
Wednesday - Music
Thursday - Gym
Friday - Strings/Library

Homework Policy:
The students will be given homework Monday-Thursday. The students are expected to have their homework each day. The students will also bring home tests to be signed and returned to school the following day. If a student does not do his or her homework, he or she will need to sign the homework log. After three missed homework assignments, he or she will be sent to Mr. O'Donnell.

Classroom Rules:
1. Follow directions the first time they are given.
2. Be respectful of your principal, teachers, and peers.
3. Raise your hand.
4. Have all materials ready for both classes.

*If the classroom rules are not followed, the students will be given a warning, loss of prize bag or recess, parent phone call, or a visit to Mr. O'Donnell.

Ticket System:
When the students exhibit excellent behavior, they will be given at ticket. I think it is very important to praise positive behavior! At the end of every two weeks, I will choose 5 tickets and the students will receive a prize or a free homework pass.

**Back to school night is September 17th, 2015.
**Please check our school calendar for upcoming events!
