Ms. Scott

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


Room 377

On this site, you will find important updates, a calendar with important school dates and classroom dates and some pictures of what we're doing throughout the year! If you need to reach me, shoot me an email at mscott@dcsdk12.org! 


October Newsletter!

 

Happy almost October! This month has lots of different things going on, so please read for updates and clarifications about things going on in our classroom!

 

Class Webpage

Please periodically check our class webpage for updates, pictures and a calendar that has important dates for parents and students!  

 

Conferences

         I can’t believe it is conference time already! This year is really flying by! To sign up for a time slot, please go the Online Scheduler on the IHE webpage. The link is here and the password is engineer.  

 

Battle of the Books

Battle of the Books is about to start up! With that being said, it would be a huge favor to us if a few parents would be interested in reading some of the books on the list and writing questions that the team could use to practice with while prepping for the meets. If you are interested, please let me know and I will send you the 5th grade battle list as soon as I get it!

 

Nightly Homework

         The kids should still be doing 20 minutes of reading, math facts and spelling words each night. I am in the process of setting up spelling online through our Google Classroom so that kids can do it online and in a more organized manner. If your student doesn’t have access to this at home, they are expected to keep doing their spelling words on paper. The expectations for spelling have not changed, just a new place to do them! This should hopefully be up and running by Thursday.  

 

National Elementary Honor Society

Congratulations to those who were selected into membership from our class! The faculty council had to make some very difficult decisions and I couldn’t be prouder of them!

The Initiation Ceremony for this will take place on October 22nd at 4pm in the gym. Meetings will start the very next day on Wednesday October 23rd in my classroom until 4:15pm. Meetings will be EVERY Wednesday until this same time as well. I will be creating a calendar with dates to remind students and families once we get going. All dates for this will also be on my classroom calendar on my webpage.  

 

Snacks

I am noticing a higher volume of unhealthy snacks coming into the room. Please try to keep snacks as healthy as possible so that kids have good fuel to keep them powered up throughout the day! I also ask that students come with a water bottle each day to limit our trips out of the classroom for a drink!

I want to thank those of you who have donated some snacks to the classroom! The kids and I appreciate them greatly. We do go through our supplies rather quickly though, so please feel free to donate some snack foods to the room if you would like!

 

Author Visit

We have another author coming to visit our school this Friday. It is Kim Tomsic, author of Guitar Genius! If you are interested in purchasing the book, they will be $13.50. Please send your child in with either cash or a check for this! If they purchase a book, they will also be able to get the author to sign it that day.


 

Fun Run

         The kids did amazing during the fun run! Our class won for most laps with an average of 31.1 laps! Since we won that, they will be receiving extra recess as their prize! The fundraiser is not over yet! The kids can still be raising money in person and online until the 26th, so keep going!
