Good Luck Chums!

       

 

Our  5th grade chums will be administering their annual standardized tests  from Monday, September 26 – Thursday, September 29.  We wanted to do something special for them and let them know that we wished them lots of luck.  We made cards for them and gave them "Smarties".

 

Our class told them:  Good Luck "Smartie"  pants  You'll do great!

Columbus Boat Races

We have been studying about Christopher Columbus.  In science class we made boats out of egg cartons, clay, straws and various shapes that were used for the sail.

We were able to race the boats during our Science time.

We learned that:

  • If you have holes in your boat it will sink.
  • The heavy boats go slower and the light boats will go faster.
  • The boats with the circle sails go faster and the ones with the hexagon go slower.
  • Putting too much clay inside your boat will cause it to sink.
  • If you blow on your sail it catches the "wind" and makes it go faster.

Parent Involvement

Parent Involvement

 

We welcome and appreciate all parent involvement.  Participation in your child’s education will show your child that you value their work and help to ensure their academic success.  Some ways you can be involved are:

  • Attend school functions (Open House, Parent/Teacher Conferences, Special Events, etc.)
  • Volunteer in your child’s classroom or for school events
  • Join PTO
  • Work with your child on their homework
  • Read with your child every night
  • Maintain open communication with your child’s teacher

 

 

You are the #1 teacher in your child’s life and modeling the value of education is an important step in your child’s academic growth.

Homework Policy

 

Homework Policy

 

  • First graders will be responsible for homework assignments every week.  Homework will go home on Monday and all completed work is to be returned the following Friday morning.
  • Each night’s homework will consist of 10 minutes of reading and 10-15 minutes of other subject area work such as math, writing or spelling.
  • All first graders will be held accountable for weekly homework through self documentation and a parent’s signature.  Students will keep track of what they read each day through the use of a reading log.  Parents will sign acknowledging that their child read for the required minutes.
  • It is our goal to prepare children to be responsible adults.  Therefore, children must be responsible for turning in their completed homework every Friday morning.  Students that turn their homework in complete and on time will be rewarded by participating in “Free Choice Friday” for the last 30 minutes of the day.  Students who do not turn in their homework, or turn in incomplete homework, will finish their homework during “Free Choice Friday” time.
  • Incomplete class work may be sent home for homework at the discretion of the teacher.
