Beginning of the year-

it has been a pleasure getting to know your student for the past two days.  We have been learning the school wide rules, habits, and procedures. 

Next week we will we start learning about The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey.  Your child will learn about the 7 habits and the qualities of a good leader.  
Stephen Covey's 7 Habits
Our school had a 3 day training on this and we are so excited to implement this school wide this coming year!

We have also been learning how important reading is to be successful in life.  We have asked all fifth graders to read at least 30 minutes every night.  They will also be bringing home a homework log every night to help them be organized with their reading and school work.  Once they have finished their work and reading they are to sign their homework log.  We use to have parents sign but this year we want them to have the responsibility of making sure it is finished. 

Please Call or e-mail me if you have any concerns.

I have had questions about what supplies to bring? The following items would be helpful but are certainly optional: 

Three ring binder- (1 1/2 inch-2 inch size) I will supply pocket folders to help organize the different subjects. 

*1-2 boxes of tissues- Our class usually goes through a lot of tissues throughout the year. 

*red pen 
*glue stick 
* I will have all of these available to use. These are items that you could buy if your child wants his/her own to use.
