Report Cards

A report card is not a judgment of your child's worth as an individual. It does not measure the delight he or she gives, the humor in those young eyes, or the hope for tomorrow. It measures only one aspect of a young life with so much untried potential. After only a few years of life we cannot judge their lives to be successes nor failures at anything. Please look at your child's report card with love and acceptance of how things are right now. Give it only the importance of the moment - notice and point out the good and positive, emphasize what your child is doing right and build on that to improve what needs improving. Young developing egos are fragile - handle with care and nourish all that your child is and can be.  Finally, remember the report card is simply one picture of your child's progress, not the entire photo album!

Report cards are issued the week following the end of the quarter. Progress reports with appoximate grades are issued the fifth or sixth week of the quarter.


Homework will be given most nights, and occasionally even on long weekends. Students should have one hour to one and a half hours of homework each night, depending on how they manage their time.

However, assigning homework encompasses many factors.  Did the student successfully complete today's lesson outcome?  Does the student completely understand the standard from today's lesson? Did the student use their time wisely in class? For these reasons homework is a fluid component of our everyday instruction.   

The students are responsible for recording their homework daily in their planners.  If a student is absent he/she will have some limited additional time to complete assigned homework once he/she returns to class.  

Regular fifth grade expectations are that students read a minimum of 30 minutes each day outside of class, at least 6 days a week. Daily assignments also include math, occasionally reading sheets, and making progress on special projects as assigned.  Your child's daily planner should include more detail; enough so that they can remember the specific pages or requirements of an assignment given for practice or completion.

If you think your child is having trouble completing homework, or not writing an adequate amount of information in his or her planner, please let me know. To find out the current day's homework, you may email me or call the classroom. Often, but not always, longer term assignments will be posted to the assignment calendar under the date they are due.



Missing Assignments

If a student misses school, they will have two days for every day absent, starting the day after their return, to make up the work for credit. Late assignment without a valid excuse will be given a zero, unless other arrangements are made with the teacher beforehand.  Students should learn to be their own polite advocates in these matters, talking to me about any questions or problems before an assignment is due.


Daily planners are expected to be filled out each day by students with the assignments of the day.  They are given 5-10 minutes at the end of each day to copy down all notes and assignments I have listed on the board.  They are expected to be thorough, and copy everything I have written.  The planner is also a good place to communicate with the teachers, and I will check them daily for initials and any notes from you.
