Hello and Welcome to the new school year!
I hope your students enjoyed their first day back at Dolvin. I can already tell we are going to have an amazing year.
Each week I will send out a "Weekly Blast" via email which will be found on my website incase something goes wrong with my email. You can always find updates and past updates on the "weekly blast" tab. Please make sure you read and review this each week as it contains important information. I try my best to keep it short and sweet :)
A few start of term reminders:
- Please check your child's agenda NIGHTLY. Teachers will be signing agendas for the first semester to teach responsibility. This is where you will find notes from the teacher, test dates, student homework, etc. I ask that you sign at least once a week so I can make sure it is being shown to parents.
- Homework- I will start giving out homework on Wednesday. I will assign Wednesday night's and Thursday night's homework on Wednesday. I do this so students can plan accordingly with practices, clubs, and other activities. Homework will be due each Wednesday and Friday.
-Math groups- Our class will have 3 different math groups: Blue, Yellow, and Green. They will get a note in their agenda folder as to their math group so you know what information to look at in my weekly blast.
- Test Dates- I will send out test dates in next weeks email.
- Quizzes- In 5th grade, quizzes are unannounced. Students are expected to study nightly so they are always prepared.
Please always feel free to email me! I believe in open communication between parents and teachers and students. This way they know we are all on the same page :).
Have a great rest of the first week of school!!
