Thank you to those who attended open house! for those who were unable to make it, please review the letter below.
Dear Parents, I am so excited to be working with your children and I promise to do my best to help them achieve their goals. Partnering with you is very important to me and I want you to always feel encouraged to contact me with any concerns or questions you may have. There are a few things I want to share with you that will help you stay abreast of homework expectations. Each student is expected to do homework every night and to read every night, including on the weekends. Additionally, 5th and 6th graders should be well versed in all math facts and should be practicing facts every day. Several 6th grade diverse learners are on a 2 week vocabulary cycle. During the first week of the cycle, students are expected to complete assigned pages in the packet. During the second week of the cycle, students are expected to study nightly, including writing the words for practice, and to complete a fluency packet (with your assistance) that also contains designated activities for each day. They are also expected to read (or listen to) the class novel which is currently, The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. Sixth graders will also have a math assignment nightly that may include a worksheet, or writing and practicing math facts. They should currently be revisiting their 5’s, 6’s, and 7’s. The 5th graders have a schedule that is slightly different. They will have a modified vocabulary packet that is due every week and a fluency packet that is due every week. They should be practicing their vocabulary words nightly as well as reading the text that is assigned. They may have an additional reading worksheet to complete on occasion but not every night. For their math homework, please contact Ms. Harris firstname.lastname@example.org , or Ms. Reynolds at email@example.com. As always, I am available most mornings from 8:00 a.m. - 8:40 a.m. You can also contact me to arrange a conference at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking forward to a wonderful year! Sincerely, Mrs. Goldsborough
