             We are excited for the opportunity to teach and know your child this year.  It is our goal to provide your child with a nurturing, challenging educational environment to ensure academic success in the fifth grade.  Our homework policy is as follows: Homework is given Monday-ThursdayFifth grade homework focuses on math, language arts, science, and social studies.  Students are expected to complete and turn in homework assignments daily because it will be a part of their grade report.

             Please look for future communications regarding behavior policies, grading procedures, schedules, and events.  We would like to thank you in advance for both your support and partnership in the upcoming school year.  If you have any questions or concerns or would like to schedule a conference, please contact the school at (706) 737 7219.
