    5th Grade Expectations 

    As we are nearing the end of the school year, (can you believe it!? 😭) we have been noticing that many students are needing many reminders! Please check in with your child about the concerns below, and as always, let us know if you have any questions.

    No GUM

    We would appreciate your support in our NO GUM rule. This has been the rule since the beginning of school, but we are continuing to find gum on our new floors and furniture. Please check your child's backpack to make sure that they are not bringing gum to school at all. 

    Healthy snack-sized snack-Please NO SUNFLOWER SEEDS. 

    Please check in with your child to make sure that they are bringing only water to school for the classrooms and a snack-sized snack. We are very close to the water fountain as well, and there are many opportunities to drink water throughout the day.  No sunflower seeds 

    Respectful & Responsible Behaviors

    We are losing precious teaching time and would greatly appreciate your support! We will have students call home for repetitive disrespectful behaviors. Use the questions below and their monthly evaluation to support your conversation with your child. 

    Are you speaking Spanish without reminders?

    Are you being kind and respectful to all of your teachers and classmates in the classrooms, hallway, park, and cafeteria? 

    Are you walking silently in the hallways?

    Are you focused and producing quality work during independent work times?

    Are you actively listening when the teacher or another student is talking and not interrupting, drawing, writing, or reading? 

    Are you proud of yourself at the end of each day for doing your best work?


    Thank you so much for your on-going support. We truly value our relationships with all of our families!
