5th Grade Detention:

Last week, students received a letter to take home to their parents regarding Detention to be held each Thursday from 3:45-4:45 p.m. for students who have problems following the Core Values.  The letter explains how students receive detention, and a copy of the letter is as follows:

Dear Parents,

PBIS is our school-wide behavioral management system and is based on students adherence to the district’s Core Values of honesty, integrity, responsibility, respect for self and others, and citizenship. Monthly PBIS Reward for students requires no student  have more than 7 card flips  a month.  To minimize disruption to the learning process, the 5th grade team has decided to hold detention every Thursday after school from 3:45 until 4:45 p.m for students not adhering to the Core Values or disrupting the learning process.

Students who flip their behavior card three (3) times in the week will be required to stay in detention the following Thursday.  Students who have missing assignments during the week will also be required to stay in detention and complete missing school work the following Thursday.  Parents will be responsible to pick their child up at 4:45 p.m. promptly at the front of the building.

If your child is expected to stay in detention, he/she will receive a letter indicating the date and reason of detention on the Friday before detention.  Parents must sign and return the letter on Monday morning, confirming acknowledgment of the detention.

Don’t forget– PIZZA Sale every Monday after school in the cafeteria!   Slices are $1.00, or buy a whole pizza for $8.00.

The week of Sept. 18, 2017, students learned about “shadow shifting” in Science, and they were able to explain what causes shadows.  Students drew their partner’s shadow at 10:30 a.m., and then went back outside at 2:15 p.m. to stand in the same place and trace where their shadow was in relationship to the morning’s shadow.  Students had to have three items in their notebook drawings:  their body, their shadow, and the correct placement of the sun in their drawings.

Don’t forget to join us for Open House on Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

You may sign up for your November Parent-Teacher Conference time slot at that time.

I look forward to meeting all of my students’ parents!  See you tomorrow.
