Welcome to our 5th grade class website. I will post updates here for students and parents. As we progress through the year, the students will begin to write about the happenings in our class. They will be working on blogs and news articles as it pertains to our class. We will be doing a lot of writing and reading this year.

The students have been working very hard in our class. We have moved into decimals in math and will begin working with fractions soon as well. We will begin Project Lead The Way (PLTW) very soon. We will begin building robots in science and the students are very excited. I have posted the Social Studies project on the web so students will have access to the directions and requirements outside of school. They will research an Explorer and put together a presentation for their classmates. This is a group project.
We are starting a new book called Wonder
Looking forward to a fun December.

Welcome to 5th grade at Big Sky Elementary. I am excited to have your student in my class. It is going to be a great year with a lot of fun and exciting activities.
Our schedule is going to be a busy one and we will start rolling on the first day.
We have specialists almost everyday:
Monday – Health
Tuesday – Music
Wednesday – PE
Thursday – Library
Friday – Music and Art
We will be busy and we need to stay hydrated so, students are encouraged to bring water bottles and snacks if they would like. Please make sure they are healthy snacks such as fruit, veggies, jerky, cheese, and crackers. We do not want sugary snacks in the classroom so; we will ask that those be left at home.
Our lunch is from 12:00-12:35. Students will eat lunch first, and then they will go outside. We go outside everyday and in most weather. Please send your student with appropriate clothing. We live on Montana and the weather changes on the drop of a hat. We want everyone to be comfortable outside and in
I am very big on rules and procedures being followed in the classroom. It helps to keep us organized and safe. I ask that you be supportive of our rules and encourage your student to be as well. We are classroom family and we need to support each other as such. We will be kind and respectful to others and ensure that we have a safe environment where we all feel safe and cared for. Bullying is not tolerated at Big Sky and especially not in my classroom. Please let me know of any issues that hear about so that we can solve them.
