    Welcome Back!  I hope your child's summer was everything you hoped it would be.  This is my 24th year teaching at Woodrow Wilson.  5th grade is an amazing year.  We have so many great books that we will read, thought provoking STEM challenges, DARE with officer Morgan, and my favorite, discovering Ancient Egypt.  Back to School Night is Tuesday, September 11.  I am looking forward to seeing you there.   
    Below are some useful tips to help your child succeed in fifth grade:
    • Check your child's homework planner nightly. You may also find the nightly homework posted on my homework page. If your child is not writing down the homework, please remind him/her to do so. Time is given in class to write it down.
    • Have your child read nightly. It is very important to do this so your child can improve in all of his or her academics.
    • Talk with your child. Ask specific questions about school such as, "What was your favorite part of the day?" or "What was the most interesting thing you learned?"
    • Check your child's book bag nightly. Many important papers can get lost if it isn't done every night.
    • Following classroom rules on daily basis is crucial to maintaining a productive classroom.  Bullying is not permitted in the classroom and will not be tolerated.  Keeping the classroom safe provides an environment conducive to learning.  If a student breaks one of the rules, he or she will be given a warning; after that the name is written on the board and recess time will be lost.  Any serious infractions will result in a phone call/letter/email home and detention.  In extreme circumstances a student will be sent to the office.
