Providing Students with a Choice
Choice board allows students to decide how they will learn. Choice boards offer a
series of activities that focus on students’ specific learning needs, interest, and
abilities. Students are able to decide which activity they are most comfortable with
and/or to challenge themselves.
Special Projects
● 505 Class Movie Project: Students create characters, sets, and props, write, and
direct an original animation (and possible live) film production.
● International Day & Culture Fair: Students will conduct research projects on an
international country including culture, language, history, geography, food, &
other features of their country. 505 will host a school-wide International Fair
where students will share their knowledge, sell international food & exhibit
music, art, and cultural artifacts.
These projects are subject to adapt and truly only made possible with the assistance
and involvement of parents. We will be sending out more information in the future
describing ways to get involved.
What to Expect for Homework
•Students are required to read for at least 30 minutes every day
•Students should spend about 60 minutes on homework each night
(including reading time).
•Math practice needs to be reinforced nightly (expect no more than 30
minutes most nights).
•Homework should be written in the agenda by your child. It is posted
in class and time is given to write down assignments. If your child is
absent or missed homework meeting, they can check our class website
for assignments.
Homework is intended for extended practice of classwork. If your child
is struggling with an assignment, have your child come speak to us! We are
happy to work with your child on time management and extensions for special circumstances, but we
encourage our students to work on self-advocating and coming to speak with us directly.
Graded Homework/Projects

This is another way in which we are working to keep you informed of your
student's progress within the fifth grade curriculum. Grades are given on the
district wide established scale of 1 to 4.

Level ME Score= Indicative of work which EXCEEDS grade level expectations

Level MA Score = Indicative of work which is ABOVE grade level expectations
Level MT Score = Indicative of work that MEETS grade level expectations
Level MP Score = Indicative of work that is APPROACHING grade level
Level MB Score= Indicative of work that is in an AREA OF CONCERN and
requires our cooperative involvement.

● Out to Lunch is a privilege that 5th graders must earn through responsible behavior and completion of
assignments in and out of school
● All teachers and staff who work directly with a student will have input on out to lunch privileges
● Parents will not be permitted to bring a lunch card to their child if they forgot it at home. Out lunch is a
practice of responsibility and independence. This is a grade wide policy.
● Students who have out lunch permission do not have to go out every time. Alternatively, students are
allowed to bring food from home and eat outside during out lunch.
● If your child is not permitted to go out to lunch this first round, they will have opportunities to earn this
privilege as adults see fit. In the same way, unsafe or irresponsible behavior or repeated missed work
can result in a revoking of out lunch privileges.
