Every Friday I will send home a packet with a classroom newsletter and your child's graded work from the week. A new spelling list will be in the packet to study over the weekend. Pretests are on Mondays and tests on Fridays. If your child has 100% on Monday's spelling pretest, they do not need to take Friday's test.
The 5th graders have a snack time every morning which is not mandatory. (No chips or dessert items.)
Birthday treats are great! Let me know if you are planning to do anything for your child's birthday so we are prepared. If there are any summer birthdays, we will have a celebration in June before school is out. There are 25 students. We do have some students with food allergies.
If your child is ill or on vacation, I will put together his/her work for them to make up. If you know you are going on vacation, please let me know at least a week ahead of time so I can put together work for your child.
