Ms. Valles\' Fifth Grade Class
Welcome to Our ClassWelcome to the 5th Grade! I am excited about our year together. We will be working on many interesting projects this year, and will certainly need your help to work as a team – parents, students, and teacher. You can support the work that we are doing in the classroom by overseeing homework, encouraging nightly reading and reinforcing our classroom expectations. This year we will strive to foster a learning environment that encourages academic and personal growth for our young scholars. I hope to achieve this by creating a comfortable atmosphere in which students share their thoughts and actively participate in class. They will learn to advocate for themselves and their learning. Specials Schedule: Monday/Tuesday: Music Wednesday/Friday: Gym Thursday: Art Absences: If a child is absent from school a note of explanation must be written and brought to school when the child returns. Make up work is due within the same amount of days he/she was absent. For example: if your child was absent for two days, he/she has two days to make up the missed work. Please let me know ahead of time if your child will be missing school for an extended amount of time. I will prepare work for him/her.
I am happy to be working at Thomas Hooker School. I look forward to getting to know parents and families throughout the year. Feel free to contact me as needed.
