Parent Note

Dear Parents,
 
 In the event of delay of school opening/school closing, please listen to the local radio station or television station for information.  You can also sign up for REMIND on the Etowah County school system website for up to date information.  This service will provide instant class and school updates, as well as emergency information.
 
Please be aware of the Etowah County School Board Attendance Policy.  This can be found in the code of student conduct handbook that was given to every student at the beginning of the school year.
 
 
Please check your child's Daily Communication Folder.   A spelling list will be placed in the folder on Monday.  A spelling test will be given each Thursday. We will do daily activities in class to reinforce spelling skills. If these assignments are not completed in class, they will need to be completed at home and placed in their folder.

A reading study guide will be placed in the Daily Communication Folder on Monday.  
 Also, on the weekly reading study list you will be given vocabulary words with definitions and these will  need to be reinforced at home. Reading assessments will be given weekly on reading comprehension, vocabulary, and weekly skills. Thank you for your help. 

We are using Go Math as our math text and practice books.

Language assignments will be completed at school.

Science, Social Studies, and Health are taught across the curriculum following standards set in the Alabama Course of Studies.

Three times a year your child will be assessed using the STAR reading test. This will determine their reading level and progress. 
 
Our supply list for 2016-2017 has been posted to our fifth grade website for your convenience.

I hope to use this website as a communication tool along with the Daily Communication Folder. Please check both regularly for announcements and special information. You can e-mail me at school:

Working together we can accomplish great things for our children.


Sincerely,
Mrs. Walker
