Mrs. Grumbles 5th Grade Class

August 18, 2016

Welcome to 5th Grade!

What a great first few days! Our class is so sweet and amazing!

Thank you to all of you who have brought in supplies and materials for students and the classroom. We are off to a great start!

I know it is a lot of paperwork, but I appreciate all of the returned forms. Thank you to those that have returned paperwork already.

If you are still working on paperwork and supplies/materials please try to have them turned in by Friday.
Thank you again for all of your support as we start this year. If you have any questions or concerns please call or email me.

Classroom News

This week we have spent a great deal of time getting to know one another, setting goals, and learning the rules, procedures and expectations for the year. This is a crucial time for the students and teacher to feel comfortable and establish a bond that will foster growth and learning.

Volunteers

We welcome parent/family volunteers and thankfully have already had some assistance. Please make sure you check-in at the front office before heading to the hall. In Mrs. Allen and Ms. Buckley's office there is a file folder that often has activities to complete and you are welcome to check there first. If you need assistance please ask. Our PTA has offered volunteer orientation in the past. I can keep you posted if they offer this again. Thank you to any way you can offer assistance in and out of the classroom and with supplies.

Homework

This week, students have been asked to focus on having their forms filled out and to be signed up on class dojo. Please reference the 'homework' section of the teal class flip book that each student has, to know what to expect for homework this year. Students will also need to have their agenda signed each night, beginning next week. I will be putting stamps in their agenda to reference the color on our clip chart that they ended on that day.

Class Dojo

We will be using Class Dojo this year. This is a wonderful tool that further opens the lines of communication between school and home. If you have not already, please use the code on the invitation sent home with students to get signed up.

Agendas:

PLEASE make sure you sign your child’s agenda nightly. This lets me know that you are aware of what is going on and serves as a great communication tool.

Scholastic

Scholastic order forms will come home in Tuesday folders periodically. All orders help to earn free book for our classroom and the students and I truly appreciate it!


You may order online using our class code: P3XKW, or you may send cash or check (written to Scholastic).
