Dear Eagle Families,

Every Monday by noon, the 5th grade teachers will post weekly learning activities in the "suggested weekly review" tab on the 5th grade webpage.  A suggested learning schedule for all students is posted below. To be clear, in this crisis everyone needs to follow a schedule that works for your household. There will be no new content delivered at this time, but your child has an opportunity to review skills we have learned this year to prepare for middle school.

We will have 3 Zoom sessions a week with Mrs. Stephenson's, Ms. Astley's  and Mrs. Hagy's classes.
Tuesday and Wednesday meetings will be 11:00-11:30am.  Friday meetings will be 1:00-1:30pm.
I will send the Zoom link out through email, dojo and text prior to each session.

All 5th grade teachers are available for office hours at the following times:
Tuesday: 9:00-9:30am
Thursday: 1:00-1:30pm

These are times I am always available through Dojo or e-mail to answer questions and provide feedback on any student work.  I often check ClassDojo and e-mail throughout the day, so you can send questions or work at any time. These are the times I can guarantee I will not have any meetings or distractions from answering questions and supporting you.

Please continue to check www.pwcs.edu for updates from the superintendent. I will continue to update with relevant information for my class and school.

Due to the challenges related to this historical world health event and national emergency; it will be necessary for our teams to adapt how we support our students. As we ensure the safety and well-being of students our leaders at the local, state, and federal level as well as PWCS school leaders, recognize that services on IEPs, 504 plans, gifted education plans, and required EL services will not be met in the same way they would if schools were open. Our team members will continue to work to find alternative methods and positive proactive strategies to continue engagement in learning for our English learner, special education, dually identified, and twice exceptional students. While every support given to students in a face-to-face setting may not be possible, it remains our intention and expectation to make a good faith effort to provide every virtual/distance learning support possible to our students during this unprecedented time.

Please visit the 5th grade page for up to date information on every subject!

Do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or just to say hi!

       I hope everyone is getting some much needed relaxation, family time, and most importantly staying safe! At time I am missing my class and our time together.  Please know I am thinking about you every day and can't wait for class again!
       The county is constantly monitoring and updating the situation.   I will be staying in touch and providing information (as I receive it) through email and Class DoJo.  Please check these often and do not hesitate to contact me. We are all in this journey together!
        If you would like to work on anything school related, please see your review calendar for available resources.  I will be keeping these updated and current.  Resources in your clever app would be a great way to stay current - read a book (I am!), practice math, learn about the Midwest, review using SOLpass or IXL, or review using a video on Brain Pop (now available on your Clever app)!
Please check Ms. Astley's webpage for math and Mrs. Hagy's webpage for Science updates.

I am very excited to welcome my new 5th graders to a wonderful school year! I am originally from Guyana, which is located in South American. I currently reside with my husband, our four wonderful children and my niece in Bristow, VA. This is my 8th year at Sinclair and my 16th year in education. I have a Bachelor's in Elementary Education and a Master's in Educational Management. This school year as a class we would be doing the best that we can and breaking through the glass ceiling. Nothing is impossible!!!
