Welcome parents, guardians, students, staff, and community stakeholders to the phenomenal fifth grade team We are excited and enthusiastic about teaching and cultivating creative learning paths for the next generation of upcoming middle schoolers. We believe in maintaining a positive classroom atmosphere where the interactions between teachers and students, and student and student, are respectful. To make subject matter more relevant to your child, we believe in making real-world connections whenever possible and applying learned experiences to master skills taught. Children will be excited to come into our classrooms, virtually or in-person, understanding that they will be treated fairly and respectfully. They will be excited to learn in the creative and innovative means designed by this team.
The fifth grade team believes that all scholars are entitled to a safe and orderly environment virtually and/or in-person. Therefore, our expectations are that scholars
behave and work appropriately to ensure we optimize each moment of instructional time. Fifth Grade is an important year in regards to building independence, responsibility and transitioning next year to the Middle School. Completion of assignments are an essential part of your child’s success in school. It requires responsibility, organization, time management, and gives practice in areas of study. Your scholar is expected to complete all assignments neatly, thoroughly, and on time. Parents play a key role in making completion of assignments a positive experience for their child.
In closing, we look forward to working with you and your scholar this year. The fifth grade team’s experience combined exceeds over thirty years. Your students will be in knowledgeable, compassionate and nourishing hands. We believe that parents are an essential part of the educational process, therefore it is important that we establish and maintain open communication between home and school. Class Dojo and E-mail are the best ways to communicate with us, as we can get back to you efficiently and effectively within 24 to 48 hours. Thank you for your time in reading this letter and commitment to the overall success of your fifth grade scholar.
Committed to excellence,
Tara Elementary Fifth Grade Team
