Mrs. Byers - Room 4-3


WELCOME!  I am looking forward to a very exciting and productive year with each of you. In an effort to facilitate a successful year for your fifth grade student in my class, I am providing you with a copy of the materials, class procedures, grading policies and procedures. Please read and discuss the following information together. If you follow the rules, we will have a great year.


* Please feel free to ask for clarification of anything of which you are unsure.



1)   Pencil

2) Textbook EDM journal

3) Composition book- Student Reference Resource


Class Procedures:

1)    Check and discuss previous day’s assignment.

2)    Activities: Notes, sample problems, explanations, discussions, guided practice, work together, etc.

3)    Independent practice: assigned problems.     

You must copy, complete, and show work for all problems to receive full credit! Answers only will not be accepted!

4) Participation: I expect you to take part in class.  If the class does not want to talk, random people will be called on.  If you have questions please ask.          



These rules are used to have an orderly run classroom as well as to have a classroom where the students feel ‘safe’ and ‘comfortable’. By ‘safe’ and ‘comfortable’, I mean a willingness to explore math and express ideas without feeling that they will be ridiculed or reprimanded for a wrong answer or idea. My goal in writing these rules is to have a successful year for all students.

       Respect ~       Yourself 




            Follow School Rules

            Be a person of character

            Meet and Reach Beyond Expectations!


Grading Policy/Procedures:

1)      Homework: Every problem copied, work shown, and answer circled.  All work must be shown and relevant.        

2)    Tests/Quizzes: There will be a quiz and test in every unit.

3)    Class participation: Discussions, volunteering answers, paying attention, being on time and ready to go, and working until dismissed by the teacher. All students are expected to participate. 

4)    All of the above count for points.

6)    Grades will be posted in Sapphire, please check student progress regularly.


Teacher Contact Information:


Students: If you need to reach me, the best way is through email.  Please feel free to email me if you have questions about an assignment or topic.


Parents/Guardians: Please use email to ask me any questions about your child as well.  I will be checking my email more than I will be sitting by the phone.


Thank you for your time and understanding. Again, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I am looking forward to an outstanding year working with you and your child.
