    5th Grade
    Mrs. Schmidt-Mansour:) 
    updated 9/21/18
    Early release days on Friday, Nov. 9th thru Friday, Nov. 16th.
    Monday , November 12th is Veteran's Day Observance hence, it is a holiday:)
    Parent Conference Schedule 
    further down this page:)
    If you cannot come in for a conference, we can schedule at a later time...after Thanksgiving is fine. I will send home the portfolio with grades for you to look at. I have included many work samples for you to see where the grades come from.
    Parent Conferences have begun. If you do not have an appointment ( see at bottom of web page) please call:) 619.956.2455.
    Some work is not getting turned In. This will affect the student’s citizenship grade and may prevent them from getting onto Honor Roll.
    All other communications for this class will go through the same channels:)
     Please resolve/commit to:
    1. Make sure your student has sufficient sleep as I do myself so I will not be a daily, cranky hag:)
    2. Eat a significant breakfast that will last them until recess or lunch:). (I do this also)
    3. Allow sufficient time to arrive at school on time:) 
    These three commitments by parents can impact a student's self image and efficacy significantly in ways that are wholly positive in every respect.
