The Nordtvedt News

Welcome to 5th Grade at Eagle Creek Elementary

A Great First Week!

I hope that you heard about our great first week of school! We worked hard to get to know each other this week, and our brown bag speeches were fantastic!

Introduction to Our Classroom:

Each week, I'll be sending "The Nordtvedt News" to your family with what will be working on in school, reminders of upcoming events, and anything else that pertains to our class. I hope that you will find this informative and helpful.

Please check your child's agenda each night for daily assignments, upcoming projects, and changes in our schedule. Please initial at the bottom of the day's assignments. This is a great way for you to check-in with your child and can help them to stay on top of their workload.

Any homework that comes home, is work that was not completed at school. I give students time in class to work on anything I assign. So, if you are seeing a lot of homework coming home each night, it might be a good idea to have a conversation about time management.

I'll be adding more information to my weekly newsletters about our room as the school year goes on. Also, we will be having our "Classroom Connections" night on September 21st from 6:30-7:00 (there will be only 1 session) to share more information about our classroom.

Our First Day of 5th Grade!
