    As the first marking period winds down, we will have conferences on November 6th and 7th.  Just click on the Parent Teacher Conferece page on my website to sign up.  We are working on multipying decimals in math, and we are reading Maniac Magee in Language Arts. Plant life has been the focus of science.  The students have been conducting experiments and looking at plants under microscoopes.  We are studying world geography in Social Studies before we find out what the world was like thousands of years ago.  Ask your child about what they are learning. 
    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.
