A huge part of my job as your child’s 5th grade teacher is to prepare the kids for the more fast-paced and independent role that they will play in the middle school setting. As the school year progresses, I raise my expectations and expect more from each student. Everyone will be at their own level, but will still be pushed to be and do their best. I also like to emphasize to the students in the beginning of the school year how they are now the role models of the elementary school and that their behavior should be of the highest standard. Classroom and individual consequences as well as privileges will be clear from the first week.
The grade level meeting for the 5th grade will be Monday, August 18th at 6:00pm. Please mark your calendars now. It would be wonderful to have 100% attendance. I will have valuable information on how I manage the 5th grade as well as examples of assignments, copybooks, projects, etc.
