Welcome to 5th Grade

August3

Church Website Welcome Message Example

Get ready for an amazing year!  I am so excited to welcome you to 5th grade.  This is going to be a year unlike any year before.  Not only are you the oldest and wisest, you also get to do it online!!  We will be meeting everyday in live sessions where we will teach and learn together as well as having time every day to work independently and in small groups or one-on-one with the teacher or other students.

This is a new experience for all of us.  We must remember to be patient and work together to make it the best experience possible.

WUNC's My Teacher Series Wants To Hear Your Story | WUNC

I am Mrs. Page Gillett.  This is my 21st year teaching.  I have taught 4th and 5th grade, but 5th grade is where I have spent the majority of my time.  I am also Gifted Certified which is why I was chosen to teach the AC 5th grade class.   My passion is children and teaching, but I also have a love of reading. gardening, and crafts.  I am a wife and a mother.  I have a 16 year old daughter who is a junior at Pope High School as well as one cat and one dog.

I believe that the most important thing in a class is the relationships that are built between the teacher and the students as well as between students and other students.  That means that I encourage interaction and discussion throughout the day.  This will be a little harder to accomplish in the digital classroom, but I am busy finding ways to make sure that we have lots of time for collaboration, cooperation, and teamwork to make sure that you are building social and communication skills as well as learning the required academic information.

The best way to contact me is through email at page.gillett@cobbk12.org.  I will have office hours between 12:00 and 12:30 every day to make sure I am available for student and parent questions.

Please subscribe to this blog by placing your email in the white box on the bottom right, and you will get an email when it gets updated.  Most information will be through CTLS, but the blog is a good place to look back for information as well.

Series: What Next? - Bulldog Catholic

Once you have been assigned to my class, you will be able to access the information you need to see our online digital classroom.  Most of you will have me for all subject areas, but a few of you will have Mr. Bridges for math.  You will be able to log in to CTLS Learn and see the classes you will be taking this year.  They will be ELA (Reading and Writing), Math, Science, Social Studies, STEM, Art, Technology, PE, Music, and Counseling.  Target teachers and schedule will be announced after the first week of class.

You are expected to be logged in to CTLS Learn a little before 8:00 every day except Wednesday (see schedule below).

 

Supply List 2019-2020 - Washington Wilkes Primary School

The school supply list is much shorter for virtual learning.  Please make sure you have the materials to start the school year.  I WOULD LIKE YOU TO HAVE 4 COMPOSITION NOTEBOOKS INSTEAD OF 3.  If you can’t find a white board, I can provide you with one when you pick up your textbooks.  We will schedule a time for textbook pickup as soon as possible.

Trisha Elmer - Indian Lane Elementary School

We will have live online sessions on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Wednesday will be used for independent study and for me to schedule small groups for needed areas of teaching or review.  Our Target day will begin in a couple weeks, but I do not know which day it will be yet.

5th Grade Awards Ceremony

May20

Good morning,

Here is the link for the 5th Grade Awards Ceremony.  It is not what we would have liked for today, but we are making the best of the situation in which we find ourselves.  I have enjoyed this group of students so much.  I have been amazed at their intellect and resilience.   Instead of thinking of all the things they are missing, we can hopefully find joy in the things they are gaining.  They are spending more time with family.  They are learning technologies that they didn’t know.  They are growing and changing in ways that wouldn’t have been possible without the pandemic.

You can watch the ceremony at your leisure.  Please stay in touch and enjoy your summer!

Report Card Distribution

May15

IMPORTANT PARENT INFORMATION

You Need ParentVUE!  As Cobb County adapts to our changing times, some of our procedures are changing as well.

Going forward, in order for parents to access report cards, change personal information (addresses and emergency contacts) and register studentsALL families will be required to have an active ParentVUE account. This will be the ONLY way to see your students 4th quarter report card and update your family’s personal information for the upcoming school year.

Parents will now be responsible for logging in and updating all their own personal information such as home address, emergency contacts and  phone #’s.  It is very important for this information to be accurate and up to date. The office staff will no longer update any personal information. If you have any questions about how to update information, feel free to email Lori or Kathy and they will assist you.

You also need a ParentVUE account to register siblings for the upcoming school year.  All of your CCSD students will be included on one account.

If you do not have access to ParentVUE or have forgotten your login, please email kathy.parks@cobbk12.org or lori.edwards@cobbk12.org and they will be happy to get you set up with your account.

Revision to Sign Order Procedure

May13

Hey Parents!

***Very important: Some parents have chosen “Paying for a good or service” and a fee is charged to Jen. This has happened 5 times and these payments will add up if this were to continue.

Please see change in ordering process. Should be much easier for everyone!

Please call Ronnell at 770-734-3950 USA Party Store to place order and payment over the phone and USE COUPON CODE KINCAID 2020. You will receive an invoice at pickup.

I will be returning payments to the parents who have already sent to me. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Thank you so much! So excited for the kids!

Jen
