Welcome to 5th Grade and welcome to 5R Team Odyssey!
My name is Mrs. Connie Ellis and I have been a teacher for 24 years. I am married with two boys, ages 16 and 19. I love anything with "Bling". I love sparkles too! I love U of H too. My oldest son attends U of H, is in the Spirit of Houston Marching Band, and is on the U of H Men's Lacrosse team. Both of my son's are Eagle Scouts! I am so excited for this school year!
I will be teaching 5th Grade Language Arts and 5th Grade Social Studies and I have very high expectations for all of my students. Every student must purchase a planner and bring it to every class, every day. The students are expected to write down the agenda from the board for every class in their planner. If the planner is lost, it must be replaced as soon as possible.
CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS: REWARDS: CONSEQUENCES:
Be Patient *Self Satisfaction - Warning
- Be Prepared *Academic Success - Conduct Mark
- Be Positive *Praise and Recognition - Parent Contact
- Be Prompt *Positive Parent Contact - Loss of Privileges
- Be Productive *Tickets - Detention
- Be Polite * Prizes - Office Referral
ISN: Interactive Student Notebooks
Each student will be expected to maintain an interactive student notebook, one for Social Studies and two for Language Arts and keep them in their locker. They need to bring both of them to class everyday. These notebooks will be used in class every day. Students can take their ISN, Interactive Student Notebooks, home to study for their tests, but they will need to be returned the next school day as we use them in class everyday.
I look forward to a great school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 832-736-6400 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conference time is 9:30 to 10:00
