5th Grade News!

For the Week of September 28 - October 2

A Message about Parent Communication:

As we transition from Edmodo to Canvas this year at TWE, we will be utilizing a 5th Grade Google Homepage to communicate weekly with parents. Students will be using Canvas to collaborate with classmates and peers, however the parent functionality is not fully up and running at the elementary level.

Our 5th grade website will be updated every Friday with the week's newsletter and other important information that parents and families may find helpful. Please check back weekly for the most up to date information. We appreciate your flexibility as we transition to this new system!
