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. Our fifth grade team includes Mr. Houck, Ms. Donnelly, Ms. Erdman and me. Please check out their websites, too. We aim to promote strong study habits, rigor in learning, responsibility and organizational skills.
During the 2020-2021 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 should 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 sign up for Class Dojo - a free app for us to easily stay connected. I will post upcoming dates and reminders.
