Dear Families of Ms. Van Damme’s Class,
We have had an awesome start to the year! Your fifth graders are already hard at work in Math, Language Arts and Social Studies and are looking forward to starting a fun Science unit later this month. We have lots of exciting field trips planned for the year, so if you’re interested in joining us for some of them, please make sure to fill out paperwork in the office. We are always looking for parent volunteers. Your student should bring home a planner detailing the day’s activities and a homework folder on the days homework is assigned. In class we have discussed our homework policy for the year, so please make sure to have your student tell you about it. I also hope to see you at Curriculum Night on Tuesday, September 22nd to discuss any questions you may have about the year. As always, feel free to contact me as needed by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking forward to another wonderful year at Fruit Valley!
