Welcome Class of 2012-2013
Incoming 5th grade students should begin reading at least 25 pages a day from a chapter book. Reading at least 25 pages a day, seven days a week, in a quiet location will prepare them for a challenging 5th grade year. Please have your son or daughter start this now in late July and early August.
First Day of School
Please bring a backpack and a 5th grade level chapter book to read.
Supplies for 5th Grade Students

All other supplies will be provided by the district, including homework folders, homework planners, glue, crayons and various supplies.
Social Studies Links for Mr. Flannery

Parents may check this everyday after 4pm. Unless there is some unusual event, our daily assignments will be posted each day. Students must fill in their book each day. This link is for parents to compare with their child's assignment book. This will show you very clearly if they are copying their assignments down each day.
5th Grade Tips for Parents
What should my son or daughter bring home each night?
Students should bring home the following items every night:
-their assignment book (please read and initial this each night)
-a chapter book to read every night, including weekends
-their folder binder with all 5 five folders inside
If they do not, they will most likely be handing-in an assignment late.
Will my son or daughter have homework every day? How much?
Yes. Every student will have homework every day. At the very least, a 5th grader should read their Reading Challenge chapter book for 50 minutes, seven days a week. This will allow them to meet their weekly reading goals. 5th graders receive 10 minutes of homework, per day multiplied by their grade level. So that is 5 x 10 minutes for a total of 50 minutes every day.
