The 5th grade team is excited to meet with families next week regarding some of our 5th graders. We will do our best to stay on time for each conference appointment in order to best honor your time as well. Conferences will be held in my room, room 202. If you have any concerns regarding your conference time please email me or one of the 5th grade teachers.
Also, I hope that all of you enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and some much needed time off.
Below is the school-wide rubric used by teachers to grade students on their academic responsibility grade called "citizenship". Please contact any 5th grade teacher with questions.
Wow, this weather this year is all over the place. With the sudden drop in temperatures we need to start preparing for outdoor recess during the colder months. We will continue to go outside up until the windchill reaches below 20 degrees. With that being said, please make sure that you are sending your students with jackets, hats, gloves, and when the snow appears boots and snow pants. We will be sending a note about recess home this week as well.
On another note, if you have not sent home your green conference form request, please do that as soon as possible. Thanks!
This past week was a chaotic week to say the least. Between two "wind days", Halloween, and a Fall Festival our schedule was just a little bit out of whack.
With that being said, Quarter 1 closes this Tuesday. Please make sure that students are checking with their teachers and completing any missing work. Also, please make sure that students are checking in with their teachers if they have any concerns with their grades moving forward.
Furthermore, report cards will be visible for families to view in the parent portal as of Tuesday, Nov. 14th. We will also be having our first Success Assembly on Wednesday, Nov. 15th. Last week students were sent home with a GREEN conference form. Please look at form to see if we requested a conference, and return the form with possible times if requested. Thanks!
There will also be a Veteran's Day assembly this Thursday to honor local veterans. If the school has not reached out to you, and you're a veteran that would like to attend, please contact the main office.
I have been teaching for twelve years, and eleven years in the town of Willington, CT.
