Fab 5th - Weekly Update

July 26, 2019

Quick Updates

Thanks to Lisa for helping me get stuff started for Meet the Teacher!

We have created and ordered the following things!

  • Snack list/reminder
  • How is your child getting home form
  • Getting to know your child (parents fill out)
  • T-shirt order form
  • Pine Cove Save the Date/Info paper
  • Meet the Teacher Checklist
  • 5th grade Expectations (for the 1st day of school)
  • Schedules for each homeroom class


You can see all of these things in our shared drive. I am sure there is more we need to do, but thought we would get a headstart on what we could.
