Mrs. Shields' 5th Grade Class

Click here to edit subtitle

Students will typically be offered time in class to work on homework and ask the teacher for assistance. Any work that does not get completed in class will then be for homework. Every day homework will be written on the board and students will have the opportunity at the end of the day to copy their homework in their planners. I will update this page with weekly assignments to help parents keep their student on track. If at any time you have a homework concern please do not hesitate to reach out to me. If you feel your student is struggling with an assignment I will be happy to work with them to accomplish the task in a format that suits their needs.


What if my child is absent?

If your child is going to be absent we kindly ask that you call the office to let them know. If you wish to pick up your child's homework please let the office know when you are calling them off. Homework will not be available before 1:30pm in the school lobby.


Students will be required to make up the work they missed. Students will meet with the teacher to discuss a make-up schedule! 


Consequence

If a  student left his/her homework at school and did not complete it, they will have to stay in during recess to work on the assignment.

 Parents will be notified as well.
