5th Grade Language Arts
Dear Parents and Guardians:
I am excited to welcome you and your child to 5th grade at Steelton-Highspire Elementary school. Your child will have a team of teachers this year. The fifth grade teachers are Mrs. Donnelly for Math and Reading Interventions, Ms. Erdman for Social Studies, Mr. Houck for Science, Ms. Karp for Math and me, Mrs. Heisey for Language Arts. Please check out their websites, too. We aim to promote strong study habits, rigor in learning, responsibility and organizational skills.
During the 2019-2020 school year, we will use materials to research and apply our acquired knowledge. You child should come to school, each day, with pencils, paper, a bookbag and homework ready for a daily adventure! Homework is assigned Monday through Thursday with some assignments extending through the weekend. Your child will copy his/her assignments down in a hw pad or agenda. Reading a book of one's choice for 75+ minutes, per week, is highly encouraged and expected.
I look forward to meeting each of you and working together as your child learns and grows. Your involvement and our open communication is very important to your son's/ daughter's success. Please feel free to contact me.
Simone T. Heisey
