Dear Parents of New 5th Graders,
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.
Another thing I ask before we begin the next school year is that you contact me via email so I can start to compile a mailing list. I write a weekly newsletter that will be posted on the website every Friday, but your email addresses are handy for quick notes and weekly reminders. Please check the website before the end of the school year to see an example of the newsletter.
Thank you very much for your time. I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing, and fun summer. The 5th grade meeting will be Thursday August 19th at 6:30. Please mark your calendars now. I look forward to meeting a classroom of fresh faces on August 24th, the first day of school.
