Dear Parents and Guardians,
Welcome to room 17! I am so happy to be your childs teacher in fifth grade and I know we will have a great year. This is my sixth year at Charles Kelly. I have taught 3rd grade for one year and 4th grade for four years. This will be my first year teaching 5th grade.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please feel free to send in a note, email me, or call the school at (610) 638-1070 extension 5770 to leave me a voicemail on my direct line. I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are leaving a message about a change in transportation please contact the main office so that they can let me know right away.
Whenever your child is absent from school, you must call the attendance answering machine prior to the beginning of the school day (610-638-1070). Upon returning to school from an absence, student must submit an absence note within three days of the date of absence (either handwritten stating the reason for absence, a complete green absence form or an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org).
A Day- Art
B Day- Music
C Day- Gym
D Day- Library
Your child will complete homework in school for the first 6 weeks of school. This is so that I can teach the expectations and requirements for homework. Your child will need to bring their completed homework home to show an adult their work. Please sign your child’s assignment page every night, and return it the next day. After 6 weeks of practice homework in the classroom, your child should be able to complete homework at home without difficulty on their own. If you notice any problems or have any concerns, please contact me.
Fifth graders eat lunch at 11:05 in the school cafeteria. Students can bring lunch from home, or receive free lunch every day. Snacks such as chips and ice-cream will need to be purchased separately. Please keep in mind when packing a lunch that microwaves are not available to the students. A menu will be emailed each month.
We will celebrate your child’s special day as a class. You are welcome to send in a healthy snack. Please do not send in cakes, as they are very difficult to distribute to the class. Party hats, balloons, and games are not permitted as a school rule. If your child is having a private celebration, please contact me regarding the distribution of invitations or consider sending invitations through the mail. For those who have summer birthdays, we will celebrate on a day that they have chosen during the school year. Please refrain from sending snacks or food that contain nuts.
