5th Grade Expectations
- Be on time
- Be responsible for all assignments
- Show respect to yourself, your classmates, and your teachers
- Follow directions inside and outside the classroom
Your child will be asked to practice appropriate behavior at all times. Bullying of any kind will not be tolerated. Note: Bullying is considered physical contact, physical threats, or verbal harassment. Also, disrespect to any teacher will not be tolerated. If a 5th grade teacher makes a request of your child, he or she is expected to comply immediately and with appropriate respect.
As a 5th grade student, your child will be changing classes throughout the day. Students will work together according to their strengths and weaknesses. This arrangement should allow for more appropriate instruction and success for all students. To ensure your child is where he or she should be and is following directions, all 5th grade teachers are in charge of discipline.
Each student will use an agenda book to write down all assignments. Homework assignments will be written on the board each day. Dates of upcoming tests and projects will also be written on the board. It is the student’s responsibility to fill out his or her agenda each day and complete all assignments. Your child’s teacher does not have time to check student agendas so please do not ask your child’s teacher to sign off on his or her agenda.
As part of their homework each night, students are required to read 20 minutes daily. An adult must sign the student’s agenda each night after this assignment and all others are complete. Missing signatures are counted as missing assignments. Incomplete, missing, and/or late assignments are counted together on the homework policy.
Missing assignments include:
-incomplete classroom or homework assignments
-assignments not turned in on time
-assignments not completed correctly (ex. wrong page completed, directions not followed, all
steps not complete, etc.)
-missing agenda signature
-not returning parent notifications that require a signature in a timely manner
-consistently unprepared for class (ex. forgetting pen, pencil, paper)
If your student receives a missing assignment, it will be noted in your child’s agenda. It may be necessary to have a parent conference if missing assignments become excessive.
Field Trip Policy
There will be certain situations that can prevent students from being allowed
to participate in grade level field trips.
Parent conferences need to be scheduled prior to your visit so that all teachers can make arrangements to attend.
Parent signature on student assignments may be necessary if your student is not successful. It is student responsibility to make sure graded assignments are brought home each week. If there are any questions about an assignment, please email the teacher.
