Welcome to 5B
May all our actions, words, thoughts, and spirit be centered in God, on God, and for God! Let us keep our passions well-disciplined and our spirit pure and faithful. Fidelity to our way of life will help us keep our thoughts centered on God. Then our words will be an inspiration to family, friends, and acquaintances.
-St. Jane Frances de Chantal
**If you have clearances and can be available between the hours of 11-12:30 please consider helping out at school with lunch coverage, your support is in much need and greatly appreciated.**
I am going to start posting Homework in Google Classroom. The students will have an opportunity during morning work to copy their homework into their agenda books. Parents can find homework for each day of the week in our Google Classroom posted within ‘morning work’. Students are also responsible for completing their morning work and any other class assignments they did not complete in school. All classroom activities may not be posted each day and are subject to change. I will try to post all classes each day when there is a student absent so students can find what they missed while they were out.
Students all need to have headphones or earbuds to keep in school.
I will be posting occasional reminders on Remind. Please join me on Remind App! You can contact me through Remind, in addition to email. Download from the App Store or Google Play to your phones or mobile devices. There is no limit to the number of devices that may join. Once you download the app, click “Join a Class”. Then, enter this class code: @5bstj . You’re in!
Seat sacks for the fifth grade are $12.00 each. Please send in your money in an envelope labeled seat sack and your child’s name.
Students will need an Art Box to keep in school. Art boxes are clear plastic shoe boxes about 4 1/2 x 14 inches you can find in many stores. The Art Box does not have to be sent in the first day, take the time you need to plan, shop, have delivered, etc. Here is a link to one such box: https://www.walmart.com/ip/Sterilite-6-Quart-Storage-Box-White/15442432?athbdg=L1600
Please send your child to school with a water bottle each day. Water fountains will not be available for drinking.
Thank you to everyone that has sent in donations of tissues, hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. I truly appreciate your generosity as we go through these items very quickly. In fact, we just opened up our last box of tissues! I have been asked to create a wish list of items I would like to have for our class. Here is a link to Amazon for some of the items I am planning to purchase for our upcoming class projects and activities this year as well as a few books I feel the class would enjoy finding in our class library. If this is something you would like to help with, I again thank you. Amazon Class 5B
