Things are Fabulous in Fifth!!
- Your student will be bringing home a planner this year. Planners will have class information added daily. Please sign at the bottom of each day, and use the information to talk to your student about what we are doing in 5th grade.
- SNACK: Because 5th grade lunch is not until 12:20, we are allowing 5th graders to bring a HEALTHY snack. The snack must be something they can eat while continuing to work, and the snack must not require a spoon and cannot be messy.
- Jump Rope Team Meeting on Thursday, September 13th.
- Running Club will begin on Tuesday, September 25th. Running club is on Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00. Students will be dismissed at the front of the school. Permission slips must be returned before your student can participate.

I am Mrs. Darst. This will be my second year at ROE and my 8th year teaching science. I am a Texas A&M Commerce Alumni and I am currently working on my masters from UTA. My husband, dog Winley, and I love the outdoors. When I am not teaching, you can catch me at a Rangers game, hiking, working in the yard, or binge-watching Harry Potter. My favorite quote is from Nelson Mandela “It always seems impossible until it is done”.
