I am extremely excited to continue on with our education. We take a closer look into athletes that helped changed our society, fractions, and how spheres in our world intermingle.

I hope you are maintaining a sense of calm while staying healthy during these times. I know I have had my moments of doubt, worry, anger, sadness like many of you. Nevertheless - we prevail.
Thanksgiving Break will occur from Monday November 23 to Friday November 27.
The week after break Monday November 30 to Friday December 4 all in person students will remain at their place of residency to complete virtual learning. As of right now, this is for one week only. Students who have elected to come back to in-person learning will reutrn to the classroom on Monday December 7.
If you find your student is terribly bored over break - I have posted new Freckle assignments, Readworks passages to read, and as always students can practice in IXL to work on their math skills. Please have your students read 20 minutes out loud every day. There are plenty of Thanksgiving and Native American related books on Epic to excite your scholar.
Enjoy the time off. Take care of yourself and loved ones.
I will see you through the computer screen on Monday November 30!
Love - Miss Fassett
Hello Parents and Guardians-
On Monday October 26, some of the students will be welcomed back to Shenandoah for the first time since March. I am so excited to have students back in the classroom.
These are items I am asking for students to have when returning on Monday:
- Fully charged iPad ready to go for Monday
- Esperanza Rising novel
- Kleenex box or Kleenex packet to keep at desk
- Earphones to keep at school or travel with
- Water bottles
I understand not all items will be achievable, but would appreciate your help in making sure some of this list is sent on Monday October 26.
Please note the bathroom schedule will look a little different. Students will not just be able to go whenever they please. We will have scheduled breaks. I will do my best to get to them to the bathroom room once in the morning, at lunch, and once in the afternoon. Please have your student go before they come to school. We have such a short day that we need to focus on learning.
The first week back will be a bit of challenge as we navigate teaching in person and virtually. Be patient. We will work through the kinks. I will not let your students down. My goal is to maintain rigorous teaching no matter where the student is.
I have disinfected my room to the max- desks wiped down, furniture is socially distanced, soft items removed to limit spreading of virus, and cleaned so much more! I have some masks, disinfecting wipes, and gloves. Each day we will wipe down our area and materials to make sure we are staying as safe as possible. If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home. We are starting cold and flu season; let’s take care of each other and ourselves.
I appreciate all that you have done during this virtual learning experience. I also want to thank you for sending your students back to school. I cannot wait to see them on Monday October 26.
Sending Love and Thanks,
This week marks the end of Quarter 1 - all completed virtually. I am so impressed with the rigorous learning, tech support, and just plain fun my class has done.
On Monday October 19 we will start our class time at 8:40 am and go until 3:07 pm. This is to get back on the real school schedule.
Starting Monday October 26, 5th and 6th grade students will start to trickle back into room 206. We will have half our the class learning virtually and half of the class in the room. I am so thrilled to have students back in the school. I miss their energy, spunk, and laughter.
We do not have school on Friday October 16.
Have a lovely weekend!
Students are becoming experts on human rights, using mental math skills, investigating matter vs mass, and learning about the cultural ramifications of territory expansion. We are doing great things in 5th and 6th grade. I cannot believe we are already enetering a full month of school.
Please make sure to check ClassDOJO for extremely important announcements.
Progress Reports will be sent home Friday September 25.
Reach out if you have any questions.
Teachers are back in sessions. Students will soon be welcomed to virtual class on August 31. I am EXCITED to be getting to know and teaching my new 5th and 6th graders.
Stay tuned for more information!
