Mrs. Gilmore's Class- 5th Grade
Closer to time, I will send out a schedule for breakfast sign ups. I like to feed all students a healthy breakfast at school so I know they're starting their tests with a full belly!
*Background checks must be completed YEARLY in order to attend class parties, field trips, and field day. Please see the front office or the district website for a form.
Schofield has many opportunities for families to volunteer and be involved during the school day. If you are interested in the below parent involvement opportunities, please contact Ms. Markie Bravestone, Schofield’s Assistant Principal, at email@example.com.

In addition to the above opportunities during the school day, parents can attend PTO Meetings, assemblies, special building events and serve on the Parent Lighthouse Team. Communication about these events are on Schofield’s Facebook page and in monthly building newsletters.
Building Improvement Plan and School Performance
It is Schofield Elementary's goal to make sure more than 80% of students are proficient with Missouri Learning Standards for math and literacy.
Literacy: We will begin comparing/contrasting and analyzing various texts. We will start a short study over several Shel Silverstein's poems.
Writing: Students will continue our research on classes of vertebrates. We will revise our papers to include good word choice and descriptive phrases.
Math: We will continue our learning on how to multiply decimals.
Science: We will further our study on plants and animals by looking at how plants get what they need through a process called photosynthesis.
WIN Time (What I Need): We will focus on regrouping and renaming while adding and subtracting fractions while
Schofield's proportional attendance rate for the month so far is 95.69%. Our building level goal is to have a proportional attendance rate of more than 95%.
We are working our way to proficiency (81% or more of our class) with being able to add and subtract fractions. We went from 0% proficiency to 71%!
