Report Cards: Tuesday March 11th
There will be two sessions: From 1 pm to 3 pm and from 5pm to 7:30 pm . If neither of those sessions works, please contact me to make an appointment.
State ELA Exams
The ELA exam is unusually early this year.
The state ELA test is April 1st through 3rd. Class 503 is well prepared, especially those who have been with this since 4th grade. We will be working to hone our writing skills in the coming weeks.
The school is setting up a Saturday academy to help students prepare. Class 503 will be taught by the great Ms Ebanks! We are very fortunate!
Thanks to Ms. King and our own Senor Science, Mr. Taveras , some class 503 students will be able to learn coding during Monday and Tuesday afternoon extended day lessons. Computer coding is involved in a myriad of items we use daily: apps on our smart phones, websites, robotics, automobile engines to name a few. The field of software engineering is one of the great growth areas of opportunity and we are pleased to be able to provide our students with an introduction and foundation in this great field.
Sample Student Documents
For students who want to see an example to help them write an essay, our website has documents and powerpoints. You can use our class computer,or if you have Microsoft office, your own computer. The samples are located below the homework section. See Mr. Samuels if you need help finding them.
Khan Academy is a free website that provides video lessons,mostly in mathematics. It also has lessons is a variety of science subjects,including computer coding. It is easy to use, if you have internet access on a computer or tablet. Just put the subject in the search box (like partial quotients division) and you will find a group of lessons and practice problems.
Scholars' Trip at Year's End
At the end of 5th grade, we celebrate graduation with a series of events including the scholar's trip. Going on the scholar's trip is a privilege that must be earned through consistent effort in academics and behavior. Each week students get a grade of 1 through 4 for academic/behavioral effort. To qualify for the trip, a student must maintain a 3 average for the year.
