Dear Fifth Grade Parents,

We are very excited about the 2016-2017 school year.  Thank you for entrusting your child to us.  Please take a few minutes to look over the attached packet regarding the Fifth Grade classroom policies.

Our theme this year is Jesus is our real “Journey off the Map.”  Each month we will explore how to follow God’s lead.  The way God works in the children blesses us every year.  We look forward to what God has for all of us this school year.

Our academic day will begin promptly. Please make a habit of saying goodbye to your child prior to heading to the classroom.  If your child has a cell phone, it may be at school in a backpack pocket, turned off.

Dismissal will be from the classroom each day.  The students will be dismissed every Tuesday at 2:00pm. The rest of the week dismissal will begin at 2:40. Students will need to be picked up by 2:50 or they will be signed into extended care at that time. Our students will have a quiet time right outside our classroom during the 2:40 – 2:50pm dismissal time.

We look forward to seeing all of you at Back to School Night next Thursday, September 8th from 7:30p.m. to 8:30p.m.

There are several ways we can communicate throughout the year.  Ms. Locke can be reached at klocke@linfield.com. Ms. Wieczorek can be reached at swieczorek@linfield.com.  Also be sure to check the class website http://linfield5.org regularly. We will team teach the class for many activities. Ms. Locke will teach both classes History and Mrs. Wieczorek will teach both classes Science this year.  Each week the newsletter will be posted with information regarding the upcoming events, nightly homework assignments will be listed, as well as handouts that are needed. More information regarding this site will be shared at Back to School Night. Periodically I will send out a text message regarding important timely news. Please sign up to receive these messages. See attached page for directions to enroll in the Remind app. Your child will receive a free Homework pass if this is done prior to Back to School Night.

We look forward to an exciting year,


Ms. Karen Locke
