5th Grade Parent Letter

Dear 5th Grade Families,

We are excited to share many new opportunities, as well as valuable lessons from the past with our students. Chromebooks will be used in all classes on a regular basis for resources, practice, enrichment activities, organization, and much more. We are looking forward to a great year of learning!

This year we are implementing the use of Google Calendar for students to keep track of assignments. Ask to see the calendar on a regular basis. Students will be expected to bring their charged Chromebook back and forth to school each day. You can keep track of your student’s grade by checking PowerSchool. Teachers plan to update grades on a weekly basis.

We look forward to the many opportunities we can offer your child during their 5th grade experience. Please feel free to contact any one of us with your questions at 260-982-8685.
