Welcome to 5th Grade
Friday, October 29th is Spirit Day!
The student's schedule can be found in the back of the student's planner along with their AR form and ATL form.
The student's planner is to go back and forth from school to home everyday. Mrs. Nessler and Mrs. Galvis will direct the students everyday to write down their homework, important dates, and important information. It is the student's responsibility to make sure that they are using their planners appropriately.

The students were given their reading goals for the 1st Trimester. They were also given an AR form to complete for each book that they read and take an AR quiz for. The student's reading goal and reading level are also written on the form which can be found in your child's planner.
Students are assigned a handwriting page weekly. If a student did not complete a handwriting page during the 1st trimester, it is the student's responsibility to have the assigned page completed and turned in by Tuesday, November 2nd. If a student has any incomplete pages in the handwriting book, they will receive an ATL in ELA.
If a student has an ATL in a subject, they will be marked and dated on the Approaches to Learning form in the back of the student's planner. The ATL grade will be entered into Renweb and will be highlighted yellow in the gradebook. Click on the ATL grade and it will display the details of the ATL. Parents: ATL grades can only be accessed using a laptop or desktop computer. These devices give a more detailed view of Renweb's gradebook than using the app on your phone or an i-Pad.
