Fifth Grade


School Community Compact Pg 1 Pg 2

February 2019

The fifth grade class of 2019 is preparing for middle school. We have a lot to look forward to in the next couple of months. Be sure to check your child’s backpack everyday for important notices and reminders. Students are working on opening a combination lock. They are having fun following the directions and will be professionals before they enter Middle School.

This is becoming a very busy year for the fifth graders. The SBAC test is vastly approaching and the students continue to work on goal setting to promote self-motivation within all their academic and personal growth. In mathematics, we are going to be working diligently with fractions. Your children will be adding and subtracting fractions with like and unlike denominators.

Here is a strategy that will enhance your child’s mathematical thinking that you can work on at home. Ask your child to explain their reasoning for solving a math problem they have on their nightly homework. Also, we ask that your child continue to work on his/her multiplication and division math facts on a nightly basis. This really is the foundation to their mathematical learning.

Student Take Home Folder and Planner

Students keep their homework assignments, notices, and completed work in their homework folder that goes home with them every night. These are essential for staying organized. Please go through your child’s folder with them each night to stay up to date on what is going on in school and in the classroom. Students also write homework assignments in their planner daily. Please review your child’s planner with them nightly and sign your initials in the space at the bottom.

Behavior Expectations

Hubbell School uses a combination of Restorative Circles and Crew Circles, to which we hold students accountable for being Responsible, Respectful, Having Pride, and Safe in all areas of our school. We have reviewed these expectations together and continue to practice them daily.
