My name is Mr. Thompson, and I will be teaching your 5th grade student this year. I am excited and have curriculum planned that will help your student have a great school year! The purpose of this letter is to let you know what your student needs to bring for class, and ways you can reach me during the school year.
For our classes, the items your student will need are:
Three packs of pencils for the class to share (I sharpen pencils daily for the students)
Three packs of notebook paper for the class to share
A package of pencil-top erasers for the class to share
1 box of crayons for the class to share
Backpack/Book Bag (needed to carry folders and books to and from school)
2 Composition books (for class notes & work)
1 box of Kleenex would be greatly appreciated!
1 container of Lysol (or other) wipes
Earbuds to use with Chromebooks in class
A desire to learn!
The fastest way to contact me and to keep up with your student in our classes is through Remind. I can contact you using Remind via text or e-mail (text messages are the quickest way). The Student Information sheet you will receive from me has a place for your cell phone number so I can connect with you. If you would like to speak to me about your student, the curriculum, or any other topic related to your student during the school year, you can also call me at school during the day (I will call you back after school is out). If you prefer to e-mail me, my e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can e-mail me anytime and I will either e-mail or call you back.
I look forward to working with you and your student!
