ROE 5th Grade Student Wins Big at the State Fair

Congratulations to Lola Nimz who won 3rd place in the Creative Arts Designer Challenge & 1st place in the Creative Arts Lego Scale Model. If your family hasn't been to the fair yet, be sure to go through the crafts hall and look for her creations. We are very proud of her accomplishments!

Important Information to Help Your Student!

What Can We Work on at Home?!?

You may have noticed that your student does not have daily homework. However your student is responsible for bringing a fact grid to Math class every day! The only time a student should have homework is to make-up missed work from an absence or work that was not completed in class. Here are some suggestions if you want your student to have extra practice.

Daily Fact Grid (multiplication chart 1-12 & 25's)

Read daily for at least 20 minutes

Practice fact fluency (multiplication & division)

Log in to ClassLink and work on Math, Reading, Science, and Social Studies in Progress Learning (this used to be Education Galaxy), or check out Sora, our online digital library.
