Team Spartan Newsletter

5th Grade at Waverly East Mrs. LaMere/Mr. Van Norman

Welcome to Our Newly Formed Team!

Our Schedule

We are off to a fantastic start with our new team! We have two classrooms in our Team Spartan named: "Go Green" and "Go White". Go Green starts the day with Mr. Van Norman for Math and Science while team Go White starts the day with Mrs. LaMere for Reading Street/Language Arts and Social Studies. We have earned break together, then switch teachers. We are fortunate to now have a very nice class size!


Letters of introduction were sent home on our first day together last Wednesday.

Please note that a black homework binder comes home each day and is to be returned the next day. Announcements and homework should be clipped in the binder daily. This notebook will help you and your child keep track of nightly homework. Also, continue to check PowerSchool for grades. We update grades fairly quickly and you can see if your child is missing any assignments. Students joining our team this week will have new entries in the PowerSchool grade book as all previous grades have been printed.

Check your email for this electronic newsletter as it gives a two week instructional plan and important announcements. In addition to our homework binders, many of our assignments can be viewed in Google Classroom and Spelling City. Your child know his/her username and password quite well after this week. Spelling City introduction letters were sent home Monday students that have Mrs. LaMere for the first time in Language Arts.
