Welcome to Fifth Grade!
Thanksgiving Break –The week of November 21st–Happy Thanksgiving!! No school
November –December Service Project—“Canstruction”
GOAL–100 CANS PER CLASS.
We love this project for our kids. We are working on our ideas for our “Canstructions” this next week. Everyone is encourage to submit an idea. This is a great project to remind your student that there are many kids in Jackson that open their cabinets to nothing. We will collect cans for two weeks. We will build our project the week before Thanksgiving. PLEASE SEND THOSE CANS IN THE NEXT WEEK. We take anything. We took some of our cans last year to the Care Center and Dream Center. Both of these programs help single women with and without children to feel loved and supported with food as well as shelter so they have a better life.
CHRISTMAS PARTY–DECEMBER 14TH–
Christmas Break—December 19th through Jan 1st–Return Jan 2nd
Notes—Please keep us posted if your child will be out or if afternoon pick-up plans change.
Everything that your child brings to school will go back and forth from Tutorial to home each day.
Bring a healthy snack–no peanuts, Water or juice rather than soda, may want to send two snacks.
Bring a light jacket–can be hot or cold in some rooms.
Art will be Thursday–starting the first day.
Encourage your student to talk and meet to our new friends while catching up with our Faith friends. We want everyone to have a great new year.
We like for our kids to arrive after 8:15 but we don’t start our tutorial day until 8:30 am. That gives them time to visit and get ready for our day. They love their friends. We dismiss at 12:15 but please plan to arrive no later than 12:10.

To the 2017-2018 5th grade students: August 10, 2017 is coming soon and I am excited to meet you all! Don’t forget to bring all your supplies labeled with your name. Also, be sure to have your novel with you the first day as well (5th-Island of the Blue Dolphins). On the first day of school, we will spend some time getting to know each other, getting organized with books and materials, and learning about what my guidelines for the year will be for our class. Please make sure you have a composition book with you on the firstly of school!! They have some at Kroger for 50 cents!!
This year at Faith, I hope to help your child be organized and more responsible with classwork, homework, projects, and time. My hope is that you will help your child with these skills in the beginning but that soon they will gain ownership of most of the responsibility. Each day I will teach a grammar lesson and a writing lesson. On Tuesday, in addition to grammar and writing, we will discuss our novel. I will give homework in grammar and writing on Tuesday and Thursday. Our novel assignments will be given on Thursday so your child will have Friday-Tuesday to complete the reading and discussion questions. We will move along quickly in order to complete the curriculum. I will need your child to complete the work at home and for you to check the completed work to make sure your child’s practice is resulting in mastery of the new skill taught each week. *NOTICE! The homework assignments need to be checked at home. I will check the classwork done on Tuesday and Thursday as well as the completed novel projects and final writing assignments. Please feel free to use the homework you check as another grade. Grammar tests will be given at Faith. In order for your child to participate in novel discussions, they will need to bring completed discussion questions to class on Tuesday each week. For the vocabulary portion of the discussion questions, please use merriam-webster.com. That way we will all have similar definitions. I will not grade these for correct answers but I will take a grade on participation. Therefore, these are important to have completed. They will also serve as a study guide for the end of novel test. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or as needs arise. I will get back to you as soon as I can. My email is: email@example.com
