Week of SEPTEMBER 14, 2020

Your children are doing a wonderful job with learning and navigating our virtual learning environment.

Our daily meetings begin at 8:35 a.m. 

This week we will continue to work on assignments on TEAMS and the varied apps on CLEVER.

Always have a pencil and notebook ready to use!


September 3, 2020

Welcome to Fifth Grade!

It is going to be an exciting year and I am very happy that you are in class!

Parents you should receive an email from me with some beginning of virtual school year information. If you haven't received the email, please email me at and in the subject line please put your child's first and last name. 


On Tuesday, September 8th we will have our first class meeting on Office365 TEAMS. Sign in time is 8:35 a.m. Please be patient it might take a few minutes. If you are unfamiliar with the sign in for TEAMS, you can find links and steps on our School Five page.  

In order for your child to sign in and to access Office365 TEAMS and the other digital apps, they need to first sign into CLEVER. The steps to sign in for CLEVER (and TEAMS) are as follows: the user name is your child's six digit id and their password will be their birthday (2 digit month, 2 digit date, and 4 digit year of their birth). 

We have found that students working on computers and laptops have better access to CLEVER and Office365 TEAMS. If you are working on a mobile device it might be limiting.


At this time the best way to reach me is through email:


I look forward to getting back to school and I hope you are too!


Have a great weekend and see you on  Tuesday, September 8th at 8:35 a.m.
