It's hard to believe we have just 3 more weeks in the 2nd 9 weeks and we are almost halfway through our year! I see most students motivated with their reading and working hard toward their goals! If they are reading each night, they should be able to easily achieve the goal that is set. Please make sure that your child is reading nightly and getting their Reading Log signed. This is a graded requirement and is also critical for students to meet their 9 weeks AR goal. Some students need to be reading extra in order to meet their goal in the next 3 weeks. Please, please encourage the extra reading!
Also, please make sure your student is completing their ELA or SS homework for me as assigned. It is recorded in their agenda and is on the website weekly. These assignments can affect their grade if not completed and are also needed for practice of skills.
This year, 5th grade will be participating in the Tropicana Speech program in December. The majority of the assignment is completed as homework and many increment due dates have been set to help the students complete the speech and become successful. Please make sure that you are keeping up with the important due dates with your child and helping them to practice. All of the due dates are on my calendar, as well as on the Homework sheet that students brought home, on the PDF on this website, and through email to parents. Please keep this sheet nearby! I have also attached a few PDF documents that have tips for helping your child with their speech. Also, this website is a great resource as well.
