Mrs. Kimbrough - 5th grade

Happy New Year!

The beginning of the second semester has started off nicely. With it being the “downhill slide” of the school year we are getting down to business! We will be working hard to fill our brains with all things fifth grade before we move out and move on to sixth!

That being said, I would like all parents/guardians to know that I’ve reminded the students that late assignments will not be accepted after 4 days. Each day late 10% gets taken off the assignment as well. With all the papers flying around keeping track of current assignments and stacks of late assignments gets a little crazy, for them and for me!

            There has been a change in how we do our book reading/ AR comprehension points. They will no longer strive to meet a weekly 3 point goal. I met with each student individually and looked we at their progress and abilities thus far. Together, we then came up with an individual goal for the month. Each month we will revisit their goal and increase it or keep it the same, depending on how they did the month prior. If they reach their individual goal they will get to attend an AR party at the end of the month! We are all really excited about this new incentive!

            There are no 5th grade activities this month but February will be a busy month so stay tuned!

            The only scheduled day off from school for the remainder of January is the 21st for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
