Mrs. Melissa Masheff, 5th Grade Teacher

Dear Crawford Families,

I am thrilled to be at Crawford for another year in fifth grade! This year I will teach reading to all of our 5th graders.

Independent AR Project (in your child’s binder)

-1 book per genre, per testing window (total of 3 per quarter)

-In AR level range

Attendance: Regular and prompt attendance is crucial to your child’s success at school. School begins promptly at 8:00 and your child is tardy at 8:05. If your child arrives after 8:05, he/she will need to stop by the office and get a tardy slip.

Snack: We will have a brief morning snack each day. Please send a healthy, quick snack for your child. Snacks will not be shared due to allergies. Mrs. Masheff does not provide snack.

Lunch: Our lunchtime is 11:45. Please keep track of money in the lunch account or send a lunch from home. We have the privilege of having a microwave in our classroom. Please be mindful when sending a microwaveable lunch. Try to keep heating times between 1-2 minutes due to the number of students in the class. Parents are more than welcome to occasionally join our class for lunch.

Cell Phones/Tech Gadgets: Cell phones need to be turned off and left in backpacks while on Crawford property. If a cell phone is used, it will be taken and only returned when a parent comes to retrieve it. Any other “techy gadget” (tablets, handheld games, iPods, etc.) should be left at home.

Fidget Spinners: Fidget spinners/cubes are not allowed in school unless a student’s medical or legal records dictate the specific need for the object.

Birthdays: Feel free to send in celebratory treats for your child’s birthday. Please DO NOT send balloons or flowers, as this is a distraction from learning.

Work Policy: Work is due on the date provided. No late work will be accepted after September 1st. Late work will be entered as ‘0’.
