Welcome to 5th Grade

May 28, 2024

Hello soon to be 5th graders! I hope you are having an awesome summer! I am excited to meet you and learn together!

Please mark your calendars for Back to School Night on Monday, August 19thfrom 6-8 pm. Presentations will be given every 30 minutes starting at 6:00 pm, with the final session beginning at 7:30 pm. Our classroom is in the south hallway, the last door on the right, Room 158.

The First Day of School is Wednesday, August 21st. The first three days are early out days with dismissal at 1:10 pm.

Here are a couple of things you can do now to prepare:

  1. Please subscribe to my blog by clicking on the icon to the right and inputting your email address.
  2. Parents and students, please read through the Class Disclosures together and sign the form Class Disclosures Signatures.
  3. Please complete this short Family Survey to help me get to know your student better.
  4. Instead of purchasing school supplies, please pay a donation of $30 here: Online Payments, marking “Donations-Class Supplies” and selecting “5 Beal” in the teacher drop down. You can also pay in the Q1 Office. Please do so on or before Back to School Night and I will take care of all the shopping, labeling, and organizing of class supplies. To see what your $30.00 will cover, please click on the class supply list under the Parent Info tab above. Please note, that these are the only supplies allowed; anything else will be sent home.
  5. Make a $20 donation for a special end-of-year field trip. This can be paid at the same time as your school supplies by marking “Field Trips“.

Additionally, students will need to bring the following items on the first day of school:

  • Headphones or earbuds – labeled with the student’s name. Parents will be responsible to replace broken or damaged headphones/earbuds throughout the year. We use headphones multiple times every day, throughout the day in the classroom. Please try to find the highest-quality headphones possible. 
  • Water bottle – Student may bring a small water bottle that they can have with them throughout the day.
  • Small bag if needed – Only small bags are allowed for personal items if needed. Please, no large backpacks. They are not necessary. We are a technology school so we don’t send papers home often and classroom storage space is limited.

Students can prepare for 5th grade by reading for 20 minutes every day, and practicing their multiplication and division math facts. Most of all, I hope you can get outside and have some fun!

Please email me with any questions or concerns you may have. We’re going to have an incredible year!

See you soon!

Field Day at Ogden Junction

April 26, 2024

Dear Parents and Families,

I wanted to share some exciting news about our upcoming 5th-grade Field Day at Ogden Junction. Our students will have the incredible opportunity to enjoy activities such as iRock, iFly, FlowRider, and Fat Cats Bowling. It’s sure to be a day full of fun and memories for our children.

To make this event possible, we are asking for a minimum contribution of $20 per student. Your support will help cover the costs associated with these fantastic activities and ensure every child can participate.

In the event that we are unable to raise enough funds for the entire 5th grade to attend, rest assured that all money collected will be used towards another engaging field day activity for our 5th graders.

Your generosity and support are sincerely appreciated. Together, we can make this field day a memorable experience for our students. Thank you for being part of our school community and for your continued involvement in your child’s education.

Maturation, Friday 4/12

April 10, 2024

This is a reminder that our Maturation class is this Friday, April 12th. We encourage parents to attend and I appreciate that more than half of our class will have a parent attending. 

Friday, April 12th

Girls – 8:35 AM

Boys – 9:30 AM

Please meet Dr. Dave & Mrs. Angelee in the lunchroom. They will quickly set up chairs for the girl’s class as soon as school starts and all students are in the building. If you can help that would be wonderful. Similarly, at the end of the boy’s class, we will take down the chairs to prepare for Kindergarten lunch. If you can stay late to help that would be great. 

Remember, we are now requiring picture identification to enter the building, make sure to bring your ID. See you Friday!

Electronic Day

Our class has won a party. We will be having electronic day tomorrow, March 29th. Students can bring an electronic from home to use ONLY during the party. Students will also be allowed to access their Chromebooks if parents wish to not send an electronic. As always, I will have an arts and crafts project for students as a secondary option.

They will wear their Quest school uniforms. Please make sure they are dressed appropriately for the weather. No cell phones or electronic devices are allowed on our field trip unless your child has a previously documented need. The office will be able to contact and relay any messages to us at the museum.

If you would be interested in joining us as a parent chaperone for this field trip, please indicate below to be entered into a lottery. We will notify you if you are selected by Friday, February 9th. Please no siblings or additional guests. If you are selected, the cost will be $10 for parent chaperones. You will have the choice of riding with us (preferred) or driving separately (parking is limited) and meeting us at the museum. Thank you for your support!
