**Religion Project was distributed today. We went over in class thoroughly the written directions, the task, the rubric, etc that they all have a copy of. They can choose the Beatitude the wish to work on. A group means no more than 3. This is an outside of school project. If working in a group, students must be able to meet outside of school. Students CAN WORK ALONE IF THEY CHOOSE. If you do not have a printer, the typed portion can be emailed to me at my email,  jpaolino@olcacademy.net. 
 
( A social studies project related to their current Reading Street text will be distributed this week. That project will not be due until November 30th so that way there is plenty of time to complete it without having to do the work during Thanksgiving. They will get it this week though so they know what to expect and they can work on it if they choose  earlier than next week or the week after. This one will be an individual project. Students did finish the reading today that their project is related to).

Today, 9/6/18:
 
      Good Evening Parents and Guardians and I hope all is well. Today was another great, but busy day for class 5-2! Students received many more supplies and we reviewed basic multiplication facts, as well as multiplication of two digit and one digit factors. As this should be review for all students, it is important that we practice these skills and refresh our memory of these integral skills before diving into 5th grade GoMath Units. 
 
These are the supplies students received today:
  • Handwriting book 
  • GoMath Workbooks
  • Planners
  • Lunch Menu for September ( in their blue Parent-Teacher Communication folder)
  • Reading Street 5.1 Textbook
  • Religion- Family Life, one for parents and one student edition (most students put the student edition one in their desk).

** These supplies are in the students’ desks. More should be delivered tomorrow. If they brought any of these supplies home to show you, it is to come back tomorrow (except for the Religion-Family Life Parent Connection) so students get into the habit of bringing their supplies to and from school to ensure they are always prepared for class and have the materials when we will be using them. 

Homework due tomorrow, 9/7/18:

  1. Multiplication worksheet
  2. Reading Comprehension Worksheet
  3. Please sign your child’s planner where they wrote their homework ( 9/6/18). 

** If you did not complete the Family Information Sheet front and back located at the back of the Family Handbook and/or submit the Summer Packet, please do so no later than tomorrow.  Also, please keep the Family Handbook at home for easy reference. 

     If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email me at jpaolino@olcacademy.net. My email can also be found on the school website. Thank you and have a wonderful evening! 

Sincerely, 
 
Ms. Paolino

Good Evening Parents and Guardians,
    
        Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year! I am delighted and fortunate to introduce myself to you as Ms. Paolino, your child’s 5th grade teacher this year! We had a wonderful first day today! This is my first year teaching at this specific Academy, but my second year teaching 5th grade and am excited to do so again! I have also taught 4th grade previously. Below, please find some important information regarding today, the rest of the week, important events, and important general information. Additionally, I will post on here everyday with updated information as it arises, including homework, so please check here daily:
 
Today, 9/5/2018:
  • Students came home today with their Blue Pocket Teacher-Parent Communication Folder. In this folder, students should have a gold September Calendar, Parent Letter, and the Family Handbook. We went over the handbook in detail today in class. Please fully complete the last page of the Handbook, front and back, and have your child hand it in to me tomorrow! Please also discuss the handbook with your child so it is reiterated what is expected of them, as that was also gone over with them today in class and will continue to be. 
  • Students also were given a black pencil-case that was supplied to them by the school. Some students brought it home and some may have left it in class; as it was their choice. Students are more then welcome to use their own or an additional one if they prefer. More materials will be distributed to them over the next few days.  

 Tomorrow, 9/6/18:

  • Parent Contact sheet due (front and back sheet of the Family Handbook). 
  • Tomorrow we will continue to review classroom routines, review basic prerequisite math skills (multiplication facts), and do some community building to continue to get to know each other!

Friday, 9/7/18:

  • Summer Activity Packet due. Thank you very much for those of you whose children have submitted them today! There was quite a few! 

Classroom Expectations and Communication:

  • We went over today the very high expectations set forth for them this year, and we will continue to do so this week. As 5th graders, they are expected to be fully prepared for class each and every day with their required books, completed homework and 3 sharpened pencils, be organized, display exemplary behavior all day, be unwavering in their commitment to learn and remain on task, submit their best work, listen to directions fully and intently the first time given, and show the utmost respect and kindness to everyone they encounter. They are also required to come to school with a constant positive ” I can” attitude, embrace challenges, ask for help when needed, and know that they will succeed to their fullest potential with everyone’s guidance and support. Students know that these expectations are strictly enforced by myself and school administration. With that said, teacher-parent communication is essential and of the utmost importance to me. Your child’s success is a full team effort, so if you can continuously assist in reiterating these very high expectations, I would significantly appreciate it!  If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, I can always be reached at the following email: jpaolino@olcacademy.net. Please note that this will be the primary communication method, unless an in-person meeting is absolutely necessary. 
  • Lastly, please check your child’s blue Parent-Teacher Communication Folder, planner (which they should receive tomorrow, 9/6/18), and our class page daily for any important notices, handouts, information, homework, etc that may be in there. 

Tuesday, 9/11/18:

  • Back to School Night!

 

    *** Again, I welcome everyone to the beginning of the 2018-2019 School Year and I look forward to working with all of you and your amazing children! 

 

Sincerely, 

Ms. Paolino
