Week 2

Posted by Becky Gracey on 9/8/2023 4:00:00 PM


We had another great week! We finished setting up our room and did more team building activities. I am very impressed with their collaboration!


Please help your child remember to charge their Chromebook and bring it back to school each day. Also, help them to remember to bring back their binders and empty Friday Folders on Monday. 

Dismissal Plans

It is important that I know your child's dismissal plan. Thanks for letting me know how your child will get home Monday - Friday on a normal basis. Please notify me if there are any permanent or temporary dismissal plan changes before 11:30 the day of the change. Please see Mrs. Clinkscale's Dream Keeper Newsletter for other arrival/dismissal information.

Curriculum Night

Curriculum Night will be September 13th from 5:30-7:00. The 5th grade format is listed below and it will be in person. Please remember that Curriculum Night is in regards to curriculum. I will not be able to answer questions about/discuss your specific child. The best time to do this is at our conferences later this fall (dates TBA). If there is something pressing that cannot wait until conferences, please email me to set up an appointment. I hope to see everyone there!

5:00-5:30 Camp Meeting

5:30-5:40 Principals' Presentation

5:40-6:30 Classroom Teacher Presentation


I am so excited that we will have the opportunity to go to Howell Nature Center for an overnight camp from September 27th to September 29th! There will be a brief informational meeting before Curriculum Night on September 13th at 5:00. We are going to have t-shirts for every 5th grader for camp. Please fill out the form linked here indicating your child's size by Tuesday, September 12th, so that we can put in our order in time to get the shirts.

NWEA Testing
NWEA testing begins next week. Please see the calendar for specific dates and times.
