Schoolwide Learning Expectations

3rd Grade • Mrs. Sue Arnold, 4th Grade • Mrs. Nicole Smiland and 5th Grade • Mrs. Aubrey Moeller

While continuing with the foundation of academic well-rounded Catholic individuals, demonstrating respect and concern for others, our 3rd, 4th and 5th grades grow in knowledge and respect for their community. Students are often encouraged to ask themselves self-reflection questions like, “Am I being a responsible and respectful member of the classroom learning community” and “What Would Jesus Do?”

As the curriculum begins to advance and broaden, our teaching staff continues to embody their positive interactions with students which creates a welcoming setting that benefits all learners. Students are consistently galvanized to assess their own behavior and performance and determine whether or not they are meeting our school-wide learning expectations or SLE’s.

Student/Parent Portal:

The school uses Schoology to manage all classes. Both parents and students will have access to the program in order to keep up with what is going on in the classroom. Daily assignments, test/quiz dates, homework lists, classroom news, and student grades will be available through Schoology.

5th Grade iPads

Students will be issued an school­-owned iPad sometime at the end of September or early October. They will be able to take home the iPads daily for use, but must bring them back fully charged each day. Please make sure to get your child an iPad bag (with a shoulder strap), a stylus, and headphones (ear buds or over the ear) before they bring the iPad home. Optional iPad accessories include a keyboard and a mouse.
