Mr. Russell Neely


Welcome to fifth grade! My name is Mr. Russell Neely and I will be your child's fifth-grade math teacher this year. This is my 13th year of teaching and my 16th year in the Richmond County School System. I look forward to working with each of you to make this year the best ever for your little ones. 

Here are a few reminders:

Absences: Student absences should be kept to a minimum. When a student is absent please send a doctor’s note the next day. Only 5 parent notes are accepted each school year if you should have to send a parent excuse. When students return to school, their work will be in Canvas. Students will get 2 days per 1 day absent to make up their work and turn it in to me upon completion. If students do not turn in their make-up work they will receive a zero.

Conferences: Conferences can be scheduled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays between the hours 2:05-2:45. They can also be held over the phone if necessary. You can also contact me through notes or

Room Temperature: It stays very cold in our room during the summer months and early fall. Students may bring a sweater or jacket to help them keep warm.

Assessments: Each week students will be tested on the standards that were taught throughout the week.

Content Weights: Classwork = 75% and Tests/Quizzes = 25% 

 Thank you for all that you are doing at home. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Mr. Neely
