Hello! My name is Olga Todman and I will be your child’s fifth grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. I have been teaching for 14 years. I am so happy to get the opportunity to teach your child this school year and I look forward to working with you to ensure that your child is successful in 5th grade.
I will maintain high expectations for every student and encourage your child to do their very best. These expectations will be discussed in great detail during the first week of school and throughout the year. Our school continues to use PBIS to promote positive behaviors. Students are able to earn Ram Bucks for displaying desired behaviors. We will focus on being “Ramtastic” and as such, your child should:
Respect self, others and property.
Aim high to succeed.
Make safe and positive choices.
Because success is the ONLY option!
If at any time you would like to send in donations (snacks, pencils, tissue, Clorox wipes, sanitizer, etc.) please feel free to send in items with your child and refer back to the list of classroom materials.
Homework is assigned nightly and every day, students are supposed to bring and I sign homework agendas after checking that each student has accurately written their homework assignments down. SOMETIMES, I may also write a note about your child’s day or tape important reminders or information in their agenda. I encourage you to also sign each night showing that you have seen what their assignments were for the evening or signifying that you have read any notes that I have written. You may also write any notes you want me to read as they will be seen each day your child brings me their agenda. This is a valuable communication log and a way for us to stay connected.
This year, I will also be using Class Dojo. You can register to keep track of messages I post and your child's behavior throughout the day.
