When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.




Welcome to fifth grade!  

Please check my Teacher Connection Page weekly for important events, to find out what we are learning for the week in class, see daily homework, class newsletters, links to important websites, and any other information you may need.  Remember to also check Mr. Conroy's website for information relating to Math and Science.

End of Course Exams:-)  

Please make sure your child studies for his or her Social Studies End of Course Exam.  The study guide has been provided to your child, however, sometimes things get misplaced.  If this happens to you, you can click on the PDF file below and print out another one.  Also, you can go back into your email and find it there as well.  Thanks for your patience and understanding with all of this testing;-)

If you have not had your yearly conference with us yet, please click on the button below to sign up for a parent conference.  There are dates and times available from now until April.  If you can't find a day and time that works for you, please email me to let me know.  Mr. Conroy and myself will do our absolute best to accommodate you:-)

Just a few reminders, please parents when you are looking at the agendas on a nightly basis don't forget to sign all homework papers up in the right hand corner too.  Thanks so much, I just feel it is an excellent way to stay in touch with what your child is doing academically in school.  Please do not hesitate to call me at school or email me with any questions or concerns you may have.  I am here to serve you and your children:) 


Helpful Information

**You will find my website to be a very useful communication tool this year.  I will post homework assignments, spelling, and vocabulary words, as well as, test review on the calendar.  I will also keep you up to date with all the wonderful happenings in our classroom.** 



I highly encourage you to take advantage of the A.R. resources that are available to you online.  A detailed letter went home giving you both user instructions as well as your child's password for AR Home Connect.  Please make sure to sign up!  It only takes a few minutes. It will alert you through your personal email every time your child has taken an AR test, and will inform you what they scored on that test.  Your personal account also lets you know what books your child has read since they've been involved with AR.  Check it out by clicking on the link below!


Spelling City 

You can find VCS Grade5's Vocabulary and Spelling Online Resources by visiting the website Spelling City.  Here, you will find all of our spelling list for the school year.  On the web, students select a list by clicking on the list name. They can then complete the Spelling TeachMe activity by clicking each word on the list, select the Play A Game button to practice their words using any of VocabularySpellingCity’s free activities, or select the Spelling Test button to quiz themselves on their words and help them prepare for any upcoming tests.  Check it out by clicking on the link below!
