The fifth week of school has been busy and full of learning! Our class is working hard to build a trusting, positive class environment so all students can flourish. In creating a caring classroom community, we continue to deepen our connections to each other. My hope is that all students will feel nurtured, respected, and have a sense of belonging so they will be able to grow and learn to their full potential.
I enjoyed meeting with you to discuss your child's progress this week . This conference provided an opportunity for you and I to work collaboratively to set goals for this school year. It is a team effort!
Please ask you child what they have learned in Spanish this week. Thank you to PTA for providing this wonderful program to our school.
The fall library enrichment program has begun! Again this week, students will show their progress toward reading all the required books. Just like last week, students must show me their library form on Friday.
Please send in any magazines that you don't mind getting cut up. Our class will need the magazines for a text feature project next week. Thank you in advance.
Remember to start collecting new and gently used denim for our fourth grade Denim Drive. We are hoping to collect at least 300 items this year.
This year, all academic subjects will have two components- a RRISD mandated part (formally a CBA) and a teacher created assessment. Your child's final grade will reflect the combined scores of the two tests. I can only send home the teacher created portion of the test.
Thank you to the fifth grade parents for the wonderful Friday Feast. .
