Parking Lot Procedures

**Parking Lot Procedures** Please remember to be both responsible and courteous when picking up your children. You are asked to not use your cell phone, and please respect and follow the directions of the teachers and staff that are on duty. If you prefer to park and walk over to pick up your child, please use the crosswalk near the stop sign. More and more parents are crossing through the traffic which is dangerous for everyone and slows down the pick up line.

 

Please watch this video to see the parking lot procedures.  Together we can keep all our students safe!

Dear Parents,

 

         Welcome to back to school and the fifth grade. This is going to be an exciting year for your child. I am really excited to return to school this year.

         During the first few weeks of school the main focus will be on establishing the classroom routine, behavior expectations, and creating a positive classroom environment where everyone can succeed. I strongly believe in a positive, structured class environment in which children feel successful, safe, and respectful of each other. I encourage children to take responsibility for their actions, manage themselves, and learn to problem solve. Over the next few days, we as a class will be setting up our class rules. Please ask your child about the class rules.

         I will begin assessment activities tied into our daily plan for the students’ needs in reading, math, and writing. Some of these assessments will be in the form of pretests, observations, computer based, and oral communication. At the same time, I will be observing learning styles and specific behaviors. As I am assessing, I want the students to learn routines, group processes, and good study habits. An important key to success in the 5th grade is organization. This takes on many forms whether it is daily homework, long tern assignments, studying for tests, or just planning ahead to make sure you have everything you need to complete the assignment. We will work on organization throughout the year. Your child needs to become responsible for their work.

         Beginning tomorrow, we will be using our student planners to write down the homework each night. I ask you to please sign the planner at least once a week for the first semester. I will share more on this topic a Back-to-School Night, Thursday, August 12, 2021, at 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.  

         I am looking forward to a wonderful year working with you and your child.

         Please fill out the attached Parent Survey to help me get better acquainted with your child.

Volunteers!

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING?

SRVUSD has implemented a new system for all adults who wish to volunteer on a school campus or drive/chaperone day and overnight field trips and athletic events. This Volunteer Management System features a web-based software application that allows the District and all schools to better track and provide the appropriate level of clearance for school volunteers.

ALL adult volunteers will need to go through this new process. The District will NOT be asking parents to incur any of the costs associated with these clearance processes. For more information, and to begin the application process, click here (http://www.srvusd.net/parents/volunteers)
