Welcome to Fifth Grade




Fifth grade at the Hebrew Academy will be a time of growth for your child. Not only will the curriculum be taught at a faster pace, but your child will start taking on more responsibility for him/herself. As he or she matures, you should have to do less ’reminding’ and checking about things such as homework and personal belongings.


Homework is given in order for your child to practice things we’ve covered in class, or to prepare for something we’re going to cover the next day. It is truly important that your child complete his/her homework. In general, the assigned work  will be spending approximately 40 to 45 minutes of focused attention a night.


-Students must respect themselves, other students, teachers, and property.

-Students must be on time, and bring all required materials.

-No food or drinks (except bottled water) are allowed in classrooms. Chewing gum is not allowed on campus.

-No students are allowed to be in the classroom unattended at any time.

Positive behavior will be rewarded in a variety of ways. The reward and consequence system is posted in our classroom and the students are well aware of the expectations.
