5th Grade Newsletter

Monday, September 2- Friday, September 6

Important Information

We are enjoying getting to know your kiddos! We are still establishing procedures and routines; just remember, it will get easier with time! A newsletter will go home every Monday with important dates and information so make sure to be watching for it weekly. This Wednesday is college colors day and Friday is the day to wear your Roo blue! Please make sure that you are reading and signing your child's agenda each and every night. We write down homework, important dates, and keep track of behavior in the agenda. This is a great means of communication so feel free to leave us a note in the agenda if needed.
