Message from the Teacher

Hello 4th and 5th grade families!

We completed our first full week of content. I am so incredibly proud of 4th and 5th grade students who have been working really hard as a class and independently. Reminder students who bring their iPads home should have it fully charged for the next school day - I also encourage students to bring chargers as we have a limited amount in the iPad cart. We also use the iPad daily for work, tests, etc.

Updated Homework Policy

Homework Choice Boards were a lot for students, families and myself to manage. Our new homework policy is students will need to complete their math homework daily along their reading logs. Reading logs have 1 question per day to ensure students are comprehending what they are reading. If your child needs a book at home please contact me and I can send them home with a book or two.
