Being a student is each fifth graders' JOB
Students will not receive a paycheck at the end of the month,
but the learning that they "earn" will last them a lifetime.
Students in fifth grade have many responsibilites. 
  • Students are responsible for following all school and classroom rules and expectations.
  • Students are responsible for showing respect to their teachers and classmates at all times.
  • Students are responsible for moving about their classrooms and the hallways appropriately.
  • Students are responsible for listening to and following all verbal and written directions/instructions given by a teacher, instructional assistant, cafeteria worker, or other adult.
  • Students are responsible for paying attention during class.
  • Students are responsible for putting forth their best efforts and showing a positive attitude.
  • Students are responsible for using their time wisely throughout the school day.
  • Students are responsible for behaving appropriately in the classroom (i.e., not causing distruptions).
  • Students are responsible for using appropriate language at all times.
  • Students are responsible for copying all of their homework assignments correctly into their agenda each day. 
  • Students are responsible for placing completed work and any forms/notices to be turned in in the proper place in the classroom.   I do not go through HW folders for 5th grade students!
  • Students are responsible for packing up the materials that will be needed for homework to go home. 
  • Students are responsible for completing their homework ON TIME.  Homework assignments are for students to PRACTICE what has been taught in the classroom, so they should be able to complete homework independently.  Math homework is graded on whether it has been completed on time or not.  I will keep accurate records of whether math howework has been completed on time or not.  Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science homework may be checked in class or collected and graded. 
  • Students are responsible for following all school and classroom rules as well as maintaining proper behavior and conduct throughout the school dayMisbehavior will not be tolerated.  Students are at school to LEARN.  This is their job.  If a student is having difficulty in meeting the requirements of his/her job, the student may have to be removed from the classroom for their issues to be addressed.
I do have high expectations for my students, as they need to understand that they are accountable for their learning.
