Kelly Thomas Duff
Welcome to Ms. Thomas Duff's 5th grade class! Go #TeamCommunity!
I am grateful to start my 19th year in education and my 10th year with Pearland ISD. I'm a graduate of the University of St. Thomas in Houston and the University of Houston-Clear Lake. As a lifelong student myself, I love to read and hope to instill the same love of books and sharing our reading journeys with my students. Your kids become my kids for the school year, and, for some, for a lifetime. I'm excited to work with each one of them this year!
Please remember to check Monday folders for returned papers as well as any school flyers. Your child should also bring his/her planner home nightly to help with homework organization. Please feel free to call the front office at 281-412-1440 if you need to contact me.

Monday Communication Folders
A folder will be sent home every week on Monday. The folder will contain announcements or memos as well as the Conduct Card which should be signed and returned the following day. Also, graded assignments will be there for you to review. If an assignment has a grade below 70, students should make corrections and return the assignment with a parent signature no later than the following Monday in order to receive correction credit. The date the assignment was given to the student for correction as well as the return due date are stamped on the paper and noted in Skyward.
Missing assignments are also sent home in the Monday folder. Students need to complete these as soon as possible, but return them with a parent signature no later than the following Monday to receive credit. The grade for these assignments in Skyward is listed as a zero and "MA" (missing assignment) also appears until the paper is turned in. The date the second copy of the assignment was given to the student as well as the return due date are stamped on the paper and noted in Skyward.
