First Week of School Letter, 5-1 & 5-2, Douglaston

Posted on September 10, 2016

Dear 5th Grade Families,
As we know, fifth grade represents a big change for our students. Students are navigating through the
transition as fourth graders to fifth graders, and at times there are challenges to overcome. Over the past
several weeks students were given quizzes in both of their classes. Many students approached this
challenge and found success, but some did not. It is important that students do not get discouraged by
these challenges, but work on different strategies to improve.

In the classroom, we:
-Go over the topics to be assessed
-Practice the ideas and concepts in various ways
-Approach classes with time for individual practice, whole class lessons, and cooperative learning
-Give opportunities for students to ask questions

At home, students can:
-Go over notes and examples from class
-Practice with homework
-Write down any further questions to ask
-Check out online resources and the school website
-Contact the teachers when the obstacle seems too difficult

The recent quizzes that we have given are just a part of the student’s overall grade for the classes. In
addition to formal tests and quizzes, students will:
-be assessed informally through teacher circulation and observations
-engage in various hands-on projects
-apply their skills to real-world applications

These are just some of the tools that the students, parents, and teachers may use to help students approach
new ideas and concepts with their best foot forward. The school website is an invaluable tool to see
assignments, and online review. Please feel free to contact us at fdelmonte@dwcaonline.org and
msalamone@dwcaonline.org with any questions or concerns. We want the best for our students, and we
want each student to have the opportunity to succeed.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Delmonte and Mrs. Salamone
