It is our belief that homework should be a time when children practice and reinforce lessons taught during the school day. Parents should understand that homework encourages independence and creativity. Parents can provide helpful home atmospheres that encourage their child to do their best. Homework is generally assigned Monday through Thursday in the fifth grade. Approximately 50 minutes a day should be spent on homework. Individual fifth grade teachers have their own homework standards that you and your child should be aware of. Check with your child's teacher to ascertain these.

Major infractions are dealt with in a different manner. School policy states that any violation of district rules will result in time spent in the in school suspension room. This room is staffed with a full-time aide whose job it is to monitor children who have chosen to break these rules. The length of time served depends on where the child is on our discipline system.
For further information, please contact our building secretary.
We also have a banquet in the spring which is a culmination of a fifth grade unit on manners. Local businesses help us by donating food, decorations, and a banquet room, while parents organize and prepare the banquet.
To enhance the fifth graders cultural awareness in our area, a full day is devoted to visiting a museum, a library, a local newspaper, and the recently hand-carved carousel.
As a building we enjoy a day of outside competitiveness during our annual Track and Field Day. Each child chooses the events that they wish to participate in. They may choose from a list of track, field and fun events.
