• My class is a combined 3rd, 4th and 5th grade English Language Development classroom focused on developing English proficiency in listening, speaking, reading and writing.  The four hour block of ELD instruction includes: reading, writing, conversation and vocabulary and grammar.  Every student participates in math instruction at their grade level with their grade level peers.   

     

    • What is most important to me? Your child’s safety and your child’s learning. Please communicate questions and concerns about both of those things to me. If you need to change how your student gets home, please call the office 696-6880 before 2:00 pm.
    • Homework:  Students receive reading homework from me on Mondays or Tuesdays which is due on Fridays. It is helpful if they have a regular, quiet space and time to do their homework. It might be the kitchen table or a place in the living room or bedroom. The routine helps students be more successful.
    • Take Home Tuesday Folder: this red folder will come home every Tuesday. Please expect it, look for things that need to be returned to school and information to keep at home.
    • Each grade level has special events: Fifth Graders will be going to Starbase starting in September. Fourth Graders will be going to the Tubac Presidio Schoolhouse in April and the Third Graders will go to the Gem and Mineral Show in February. All three grades will participate in the Tucson Symphony Orchestra assemblies here at school and then go to the symphony at the Music Hall in May.
