Ms. Wierenga's Homeroom

Upcoming Christmas Fun!

Hi Parents,

During these next two weeks before Christmas, I wanted to let you know about a couple of things. As part of our class party on Dec. 16, the students will be doing a Fun Christmas sock exchange. For this class game, please send a pair of wrapped socks labeled boy or girl. ( boys bring boy socks and so on.)

Also, during the last week before break, the students may bring a small treat( candy cane, Hershey's Kiss) as a secret treat for their classmates. The students are putting up old Christmas stockings in the classroom and will secretly put the treats in the stockings. This is not mandatory! Just something fun if you want your child to participate.

Thanks for your help! Please let me know if you have any questions.


SPELLING BEE! Please go to the Google Classroom Homeroom page to find words to study for the Dec. 6 5th grade spelling bee



  • Correct and Return Policy for Math: If a student receives a grade lower than 70% on a homework page or a test, they are allowed to correct it and return it for a better score. The paper will have a CR on the top. I will also make note of this in the FACTS grading and you will be able to see how your child is doing with correcting and returning their work if needed. Papers are allowed to be corrected and returned during the quarter the assignment was originally given. I encourage students to get it in sooner so the concepts are still fresh in their minds. I also have let the students know I am available if they need extra help.
