Monday Mail - October 5th
October 5, 2009
We have been extremely busy in 5D. The most powerful work we have done has been learning about goal setting. We have set the stage to begin setting our short/long-term goals. This is meaningful work and our children are setting challenging and inspirational personal and professional goals. I am touched by their personal and thoughtful intentions. Please be sure to check in with your child each week about his or her aspirations. Your support is appreciated in assisting them in obtaining these goals.
It feels refreshing to have a full and uninterrupted week ahead to engage, connect and continue to build our community together. Please ask your child about his or her MAP scores. It is important that you remain informed and enlightened by all that your child has accomplished thus far in 5th grade.
Here is our upcoming week at a glance:
We will finish our fourth and final MAP testing Monday.
October Reading Logs begin on Monday.
After School Activities begin on Monday.
Data Analysis Unit is culminating with a
Summative Assessment in the works. (date TBD)
Personal Narratives are developing and evolving.
Cells Summative Assessment on Friday.
We have been planning and discussing our camping night for Monday October 12th. It is going to be a significant and memorable event for all us this year. I have placed informational documents on our website on the Announcements page and under Parent Handouts for you to browse. Some children are expressing concerns about our camping trip. Your encouragement is wanted and your positive influence is needed in some cases.
I cannot end without mentioning how much I am enjoying being 5D’s teacher this year. Each day brings new experiences, laughter and insight. Our community is shaping into a spirited and loving entity. I smile simply writing about it!

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to travel the world and to make a difference in other people's lives. I truly didn't believe I would become a teacher though; however, I am so glad that I am 5D's teacher! I am originally from Washington state but have enjoyed living in both West Africa and Lebanon. I am very blessed to have lived such an incredible life thus far.
