St. Anthony Fifth Grade Home Page

8/18/14 to 8/22/14

Welcome to the Fifth Grade Webpage.  This week and a good part of next week we will be building community, reviewing school rules, and working on improving social skills (esp. Conflict Resolution).  We will not begin academics until next week at the earliest.

 The 5th grade Parent Orientation Meeting is this Thursday, August 21st at 3:30 in our classroom.  Fifth graders and their siblings will be supervised by Mrs. Fernandez in the 4th grade classroom during the meeting.  I'm looking forward to seeing you there. 

 I update this web-page weekly, usually on Sunday evening. The homework for the entire week in the subjects which I teach will be  posted, including the Spelling list words. (This week there will be no homework nor Spelling words.)

    The first Earth Force meeting will be on Monday, August 25th from 3:30-5:00.  Students are to go to their regular dismissal location and will be paged to meet me at the church door.  Registration forms were sent home with the first newsletter.  If you need a registration form, ask Mrs. Rosie in the office, please.  Are there any parents willing and able to help supervise the Earth Force members each Monday?  You must have current Safe Environment certification.  The time you spend helping counts as volunteer hours if you sign in in the office.  I have been fortunate  in the past to have Mrs. Kennedy, Mr. Garro, Mr. Merriett, Mrs. Merriett, and Mrs. D'Ovideo helping me.  Some of these families have left the area and/or graduated.  

     There will be "extra help" sessions on Wednesdays 3:15-4:15.  We will not begin these sessions yet, since we have not yet begun academics. 

               Requests for conferences should be made through the office or in person with me.  I am generally available any morning or after school on Wednesday - Friday.
