Dear Parents,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the fifth grade at Paper Mill Elementary School.  I hope it will be a successful, as well as a pleasant year for all of us.

The following are some frequently asked questions that students and parents seem to have as the school year begins.

Will there be any homework?

Homework will generally be assigned on a daily basis Monday through Thursday, largely to promote the responsibility of taking it home, completing it, and returning it when it is due as well as reinforcing the skills taught in class.  Rarely should the assignments exceed forty-five minutes to an hour.  Long range assignments or studying for tests may necessitate performing some of the work on the weekend.

What subjects will there be homework in?

Daily reading is always included for thirty minutes each night.  In Math, there will be weekly quizzes followed by a topic test.  There may be some homework in Science and Social Studies.  When studying for a test in these subjects, a study guide will be given one week prior to the test so the student has ample time to study and prepare.

How can students and parents keep track of assignments?

A homework planner will be provided for each student. This planner will allow the students a place to record their assignments so that you can verify what is being completed.  I ask that you check to see that homework is complete and show quality work.  Students will lose their extra recess if homework assignments are incomplete, and will need to make up any missing assignments during that time.

Are the assignments posted on a  website?

Homework assignments can now be found on our website: www.schoolsofwestfield.org. Go to District, then to schools, then find Paper Mill, then classrooms, then find fifth grade, and finally Mrs. Morin.  However, if you need to contact me or have any questions, please call or send a note instead of using this email.

How can I keep track of my child's progress?

I will be sending classroom papers home every two weeks.  Please sign the signature slip that will be attached to the folder showing that you received the papers.  At mid term, you will receive a Mid Term Academic Progress Report showing your child's progress.  This will give your child the opportunity to work on any improvements that may be needed before the end of the marking term.

What do I do if my child is absent?  Do they need to make up any assignments?

When a child is absent from school due to illness, I will prepare a list of assignments that he/she will need to make up.  Please feel free to call and let me know if you would like to stop by the office to pick them up.If your child is to be away on vacation, all assignments will be given when they come back to school.  All make up assignments will be due one week from when they return.  Any assignments not completed will receive a failing grade.

What if I have any questions or concerns?

To make this a productive and pleasant year for all, cooperation from all is necessary.  If you have any questions that have not been answered at this time or if any arise in the future, I will be happy to provide answers.  Appointments may be scheduled with 24 hours notice.  If I have any concerns about your child and his/her work or behavior, I will contact you.

I look forward to a rewarding and productive year with you and your child.  Thank you very much!

Mrs. Jeanne Morin









Dear Parents and Students,
