Absent Work

In 5th grade we have a student in each homeroom that collects work for those who are absent. This student puts work that is missed in an “absent folder”. When the student that was absent returns to school, they simply get their missing work out of their absent folder. We love that parents are willing to go out of their way and come get work for their student when they are out. With our absent folder system, you would be able to easily get all of their work if you plan to come at the end of the school day. This would allow us to get the folder back and send it to the office for you. If you would like us to send work to the office, you can call the front office or email your student’s homeroom teacher in the morning and we will get it to the office around 3pm.

5th Grade Christmas Parties!

5th grade will be having their Christmas Parties on Friday from 10 am to 11 am in their homeroom class.

If you would like to take your student home after their party please let the office know when you get here. They will give you a sticker to put on your child to show that they have been checked out in the office! This sticker will allow you to leave with your child without having to go back to the office to check them out after the party.

Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for any questions regarding their Christmas party.
