Ms Booth's Grade 5 Class
Welcome to our Class website!
It felt good to have a full week with our lovely class. We are slowly starting to move away from the beginning of the year start up activities and getting into lessons and assignments. It will still take a few weeks for students to remember all the new routines and expectations. Here are some that parents can help with at home. Your child needs to have a full water bottle at school daily, if they choose to bring a device, they need to have it charged before coming to school, a coat (not just a hoodie) because they will go outside during the rain, and library books at school of Tuesday for book exchange. Thursday is our meet the teacher night from 5:00- 6:00pm. I would love to see you and introduce you to our wonderful student teacher Ms Amy Fuller. No appointments needed, just stop by and check out where your child spends their days. Mrs. Macdonald sends out a Friday flash to the parent community weekly. Please look it over for school wide announcements and important information from the PAC. Thank you to the parents who have completed the survey below. This provides me with your email contact and useful information about your child. It's not too late to do it if this is your first time to our class website. This Friday coming up will be our school wide orange shirt day in recognition of Residential Schools and Truth and Reconciliation. I look forward to another great week of learning with your children.

Please complete the Parent survey. I will use this information to help support your child and plan lessons appropriately.
Every Sunday evening (by 6:00pm) I will update this home page with a bit of a weekly newsletter. I will also update the parent page with planner information. The planner portion of the parent page might change depending on how are week unfolds. Typically it doesn't change too much. I will have it up on the projector for us to discuss and for the students to see at the end of the day. It really is an online planner. It has been my experience that the paper planners get left and home or school too often and then communication issues occur.
If you have a message for me, please email email@example.com
Thank you and take care,
Please make sure your child has a rain coat each day and a change of pants and socks in their backpacks. Staying inside is not an option if the Principal has deemed it an outside day. Here is a little peak into our current learning:
1. We don't use students full names when blogging.
2. We respect each others ideas and use positive language when blogging
3. This is a site for my students and their families, please do not give out any passwords to extended family and friends.
4. Pictures of students can not be shared unless permission has been given.
Our class rules
1. Be Respectful
2. Be Safe
3. Always try your best at everything you do.
