What's New in Fifth Grade?

Miss Marchese's 5th Grade News

Welcome to the New School Year!

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Fifth grade is going to be an exciting year! We have already begun to work hard and learn lots in Room 250 and I look forward to working more with you and your child this year.

Please make sure you are checking your child's agenda and homework folder every night for notes, important papers, and to make sure your child is completing his or her work/homework each night. Every Friday in the back of your child's homework folder will be a behavior chart. Please review this each week and return it signed every Monday. Your child's tests and classwork will be sent home each Monday in the same folder.

Extra! Extra!

Encore Schedule and Allergy Information

Encore at Union Elementary will be operating on a cycle schedule this year. This means that we will have A,B,C and D days that will rotate every four days. Our class schedule is as follows:

A = Media or Guidance

B = Art

C = Music

D = Phys. Ed. (Please make sure your child wears proper footwear this day.)


We will write our schedule in our agendas each week and you can also find it attached on my classroom website.


Allergy Information:

Please be aware that we have a student with a peanut allergy in our classroom. If your child has a lunch that contains peanuts in any way, please make sure I am aware of this and can arrange seating in the cafeteria accordingly. Please do not send in any candy or snacks for our classroom containing peanuts.
