Dear Students and Families,
Welcome to the Fifth Grade at St. Michael’s School. I am looking forward with great enthusiasm to a wonderful year of growth and achievement for each student. As a team we will have fun learning and working together to be the best we can be.
I look forward to seeing students on Friday, August 18, 2017. Please bring your summer reading book logs, the required book, Flora & Ulysses, and the completed math requirement on first day of school.
Please make certain all clothing and items brought to school have the student’s name printed in permanent marker. Just a reminder that your backpack MUST fit into the cubbies(17” deep, 12” wide, and 15.5” high).
We do not have refrigeration facilities or microwaves for the students in the Intermediate grades. Please send a cold pack in the lunch box during the hot weather. It is extremely important that students bring a reusable water bottle to school each day.
Please have students arrive at St. Michael’s by 7:50am. School starts promptly at 8am. I open my classroom door for students at 7:45am. The extra minutes give students time to unpack, turn in homework, and get organized for the day.
Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday evenings. It will consist of written work, studying, and reading(a mandatory 20 minutes a night, 7 days a week). In addition, there will be a few long-term assignments. Time will vary with the student and the assignment, but in general, homework will require about one hour each evening. We go over the directions for homework in class so students should be able to complete homework with very little assistance.
Have a wonderful last few weeks of summer. I am looking forward to a great school year. Please feel free to contact me at any time with your questions, concerns, or comments.
Ms. Penni Hayward
