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

I hope everyone had a great and relaxing winter break! I definitely missed seeing all their smiling faces! This semester is packed full of new topics, experiences, and more!

ODE Butter Braid Fundraiser

         Our Outdoor Ed. Butter Braid Fundraiser is a way for families to offset the cost of Outdoor Ed. We have had many in the past sell enough where they don’t have to pay anything for their trip!  Butter Braid sales will start on February 6th and go through the 21st. All forms have to be turned in by the 21st and late forms will not be accepted. The delivery date of the items will be March 5th at 2pm. If your child sells a good amount, please plan on picking them up from school that day as these boxes can get extremely large and heavy! We will be sending out more information about this later in the year as well!



         Every semester I wipe the slate clean for the kids. This means we will be starting a new homework tracker in the classroom and a new Friday Afternoon Club board. The kids are still expected to be reading nightly and completing their spelling words for the week. On top of that, the will continue to receive nightly math homework once we start our fractions unit. Please continue to sign their reading logs and check up on them about assignments.  


Young Ameritowne

         Our trip to Young Ameritowne is starting to come up very quickly! We will be going on this all-day field trip on February 25th. Here is the link to sign your child up for them to go.

We are able to take 14 parent volunteers with us, so if you are interest in going with us, please let me know if you haven't already. We will be picking names for volunteers on January 17th. Please know that you will have to drive yourself there, take a short prep class online, have to be cleared to volunteer through the school district, and will not be placed in the same shop as your child.      


National Elementary Honor Society

January 11th will be our first service project of the year. We will be at Pine Grove Crossing Senior Center from 1:30 until about 4pm. Please have the kids arrive a few minutes early in order to be checked in. Please also have them wear their new NEHS t-shirt to the project as well.


To access the Google classroom, the kids will need to log into Google under their DCSD account. If you are unsure of their email/password, please reach out to their classroom teacher for it! Then once they are logged into that, the class code is 5psf55c.   



Make sure kids have at least one healthy snack to be eating throughout the day and a water bottle filled with just water! This will help them stay alert and energized which will help them do their best during the day!

If you have any unwanted cereal or other healthy snacks that are not being eaten at home, I would be more than happy to add them to our classroom snack supply! We tend to go through our supply every 2 weeks, so anything is appreciated!
