Welcome Back!!

by on Aug.29, 2017, under Uncategorized

Dear Parents and Families,


It’s finally here!  The new school year!  This is an exciting time for kids, teachers, and especially parents.  Let me welcome you to the 2017- 18 school year.  Fifth grade is a big year in your student’s academic career.  Working together we can ensure that this is a memorable one for your child.


Behavior Expectations


Fifth grade students are expected to come to class everyday prepared to work hard, give their best effort, and have fun.  We also need to be respectful to all students, teachers, and staff here at Central Point Elementary.  The three school rules are-

  1. Be Respectful
  2. Be Responsible
  3. Be Safe

In addition to these three school rules we have three classroom rules-

  1. Keep comments positive
  2. Bring all books and materials to class
  3. Participate in class discussions respectfully

During the first few weeks of school we will learn what each of the expectations are and how they look in the classroom.  We will also discuss the consequences if we choose to break a rule.  These include, but are not limited to-

  1. a warning
  2. 5 minutes from recess
  3. 10 minutes from recess, PBIS visit, parent contact   


Any homework given has been carefully planned out and is designed to practice skills learned in class that day.  Homework will never be given on material that has not been introduced ahead of time in class.  The only exception to this will be for independent research projects.  Homework should never take more than one hour at night.  There will usually be a math assignment (30 min) and a daily reading log (30 min).  Homework is due the next day, and is to be placed in the basket at the start of the day.


Reading Log

Strong reading skills are essential for a solid academic foundation. Like riding a bike, reading takes practice, practice, and more practice to become fluent. As part of our nightly homework, students are asked to read 30 minutes per night. They are free to read anything they wish during this time. They can read independently, or to you out loud. Please have your child fill out the reading log to document how much they are reading at home and have you initial nightly.


Classroom Website

Nearly everything you need to know about our classroom appears on, our classroom webpage.  You can watch tutorials, print forms, watch for special events, and much more.

Major Areas of Study

Instruction is based on the National Common Core Standards with an emphasis on math, language arts, American history, and science.  We will be using a blended classroom this year, integrating technology with the traditional learning set up.  Many assignments will be given and turned in using Google Classroom.  If access to a computer or the internet is an issue for your family, please let me know.

In addition to academic standards we will also focus on our Central Point Elementary Core Values.  These include: a sense of purpose, engagement, creativity, determination and perseverance (grit), empathy, collaboration, a sense of community, and respect.

Contacting Me

I look forward to working with you to provide your student a memorable school year.  Please feel free to contact me by stopping by the classroom, email at, or by phone 541-664-6500.


Here’s to a great school year!
