There are no more available chaperone spots on the bus, but if you would like to drive yourself, the cost is $10.00

Where did the time go? It has been an eventful first 9 weeks. The routines that have been established in the classroom have become almost second nature to our class. The students have done a great job of becoming more responsible and aware of what they are accountable for doing in the class. Please take a moment to review your child's agenda after school for homework assignments and other notes. Thank you so much for all of your support this year with your child's education. It takes a village!

I hope this finds you all safe and well from our recent experience of Hurricane Irma. I understand many of us have been affected in many different ways. Please know that I do understand, and drop me an note or email if there is something that you feel may help me with your child's situation.

Dear Parents, - There seems to be a glitch in Moby Max and SOME of you may not be able to see the Vocabulary icon. I am working on this diligently. Please know that if there is a teacher error/computer error, I will not count off homework. Remember it is due on Friday :)

Welcome to 5th grade! I am looking forward to another great year at FIE. Please make sure you purchase your planner no later than August 18, 2017. We will be using them on a daily basis. I will be having students put in their schedules, and other important information in the agendas beginning this week. Don't forget to purchase deodorant for your 5th grader, they will need it this year!
This year in ELA (reading and writing) and Social Students students will be required to be writing in a much more detailed manner than previous years. I will be building on their past knowledge and skills to prepare them for the requirements of 5th grade. Social Studies will be incorporated with the ELA lessons and activities, so there will not be a separate text book assigned to your child. We will also be using DBQs - data based questions for the majority of Social Studies information.
It was so nice meeting all of you - again I am looking forward to a great year!
