Ms. Scott

Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Marissa Scott and this is my fourth year teaching at Iron Horse. I am so excited to have another wonderful year at this school and with all of you!

December Newsletter!


Happy December! I can’t believe our first semester is almost completed! Please read this over to learn about things that are taking place in December!


Iready Testing

We will be starting our Iready Benchmark tests in reading and math on December 1st. Please discuss with your child the importance of taking their time and trying their best on these tests. I will be going over this as well with them! Also, please make sure your student comes with a healthy snack and plenty of water for the next few weeks so that they have good brain food for these tests!


End of Semester Party

To celebrate the end of a great semester and reward all of the hard work they have done over these past 18 weeks, we will be having a small party on December 16th! We will be having a hot chocolate party and spend the last little bit of our day watching a holiday movie of their choice! Feel free to help this get set up by signing up and bringing in a treat from the Sign-Up Genius link.


National Elementary Honor Society

NEHS members will be having a meeting on December 1st to get the last-minute details ready for their next service project!


Author Visit

On December 3rd, we will be having a virtual author visit at 1:30. The author we will be seeing is Chris Grabenstein, the creator of The Smartest Kid in the Universe books! If you would like to order one of his books, please fill out this form!


Every Night Homework

Please make sure your students are doing their nightly homework! Reading logs should continue to be filled out (100 minutes per week) as well as practicing math facts nightly. If your student sees me for math, we typically have a sheet of math each night unless we are reviewing or taking a test!

12/1-12/10 Iready Testing for about 30-40 minutes a day

12/3 Author Visit
