1. Each day your student will READ independently in the classroom for 20 minutes and get one on one time with me.
2. Your NIGHTLY homework is to read at home for an additional 20 minutes.
3. AR information is available through HomeConnect!
4. We are improving!
TCAP Practice Test scores proved that we have a tough road ahead and A LOT to learn. I can use parent help! Please stress the importance of reading 20 min/night at home with his/her AR book. Set your child up for success. AR covers a multitude of skills that will only help your child in the long run.

Fifth Grade Procedures
Planners - Students have created a "planner" on their computers. Your child should be entering thier assignments daily, even if it is "none." Check for notes from the teacher and any upcoming events. Feel free to ask questions or write notes of concern, too. Also, remind your child that they are in fifth grade and this is THEIR responsiblity to keep up with their assignments and tests.
