Title: Welcome To 5th Grade at Southside Middle School

Welcome To 5th Grade atSouthside Middle
  •     Welcome to fifth grade!  We are excited for
    the opportunity to work with your child this
    year.  Fifth grade is a big step and a year of
    many changes as your child enters middle
    school.   We are looking forward to assisting
    him/her through this transition.  In preparing
    for the changes, your help is needed too   

  • Check student agenda each night for
    assignments and notes from school.
  •    Enforce a quiet study/work time each
    evening so that your child accepts responsibility
    and completes his/her homework appropriately and
    on time.
  •    Encourage your child read every night to
    help him/her become a better reader and
    accomplish his/her AR goal..
  •    Communicate high expectations regarding
    academic grades, homework, behavior, etc.
  •    Praise and encourage your child for his/her
  •    Contact us immediately if you have any
    questions, concerns, etc.

  • A good learning experience is built on a
    cooperative effort between family, the student,
    and teachers.
  • Studies show that parental involvement in a
    childs education is one of the strongest
    indicators of student achievement.
  • We hope you will make it a priority this year to
    be involved in your childs education.

5th Grade Teachers and Teams
  • Team 1
  • Mrs. Herring - Reading, Language Arts and
    Character Education
  • Ms. Burton Math and Science
  • Team 2
  • Mrs. Hughes Math and Science
  • Mr. Eckstein - Reading, Language Arts and
    Character Education
  • Team 3
  • Mrs. Smith Math and Science
  • Mrs. Kuehndorf - Reading, Language Arts and
    Character Education 
  • All teachers will teach Social Studies to their
    homeroom classes.

Agendas/Locker Bins
  • Each student will buy an agenda from his/her
    homeroom teacher. Your child is responsible for
    writing assignments in the agenda and other
    important information.
  • This is also the student pass and is required to
    be in the hallways.
  • Agenda Cost - 5.00
  • Lockers bins are the property of Tallassee City
    Schools and are subject to inspection and/or
    search at anytime.

Dress Code
  • See Student Agendas and SMS handbook for any
  • 1.  Shoes or sandals must be worn.
  • 2.  Hair must be clean and well groomed, not in
    the eyes, and not of length dangerous around
  • 3.  Clothing or paraphernalia related to or
    associated with gang affiliation or activity is
    prohibited. Clothing with pictures, symbols, or
    writing conveying a general or personal message
    rather than a specific message on a public matter
    is prohibited.
  • 4.  With approval of the principal, activity
    sponsors may establish different rules for dress
    and grooming as a prerequisite for membership and
    participation in specific activities.
  • 5.  Hats, head wear or head coverings, and
    sunglasses are not to be worn inside school
  • 6.  Facial piercings are limited to the ear.
  • 7. Shirts must have sleeves.
  • 8. Traditional pants, shorts, or skirts that
    cover to the knee are appropriate.  Pajama pants,
    and sweat pants are not allowed.

  • There will be a 10 minute fifth grade break.
    Students are expected to use this time as a
    bathroom break as well. There will be no horse
    play, playing chase, or throwing objects during
    break. There are too many people in the area for
    this to be considered acceptable behavior.
  • Students may bring snacks and plain water from
    home. This needs to be quick and not messy.

  • Students must keep the noise level to a minimum.
    Excessive noise will hinder the digestion
    process. Students are expected to be respectful
    of the facilities and other peoples space at
    lunch.  When we are finished, we will go to the
    trash cans as a group and line up quietly. There
    will be students from each class asked to wipe
    tables and sweep up after the class is finished,
    but they will have limited time before the next
    group comes in, so students are expected to clean
    up their own mishaps and trash. The cafeteria
    staff will brief all students on specific
    cafeteria procedures. If outside lunch coupons
    are used, respectful behavior and clean up is
    expected to be allowed that privilege. Parents
    can access student accounts to pay online.

Accelerated Reader (AR) Reading Teachers
  • The Accelerated Reader program is a
    computerized reading-management program that
    tests students on books that they have read, and
    assigns points based on the length and difficulty
    of the books. Before students begin the program,
    they take a computerized assessment test that
    helps teachers determine a student's reading
    level. Points are assigned based on reading time
    in school and the students reading level. AR
    will be 30 of the reading grade. No tests can be
    deleted because of failure.

Renaissance Home Connect

  • Review results on AR quizzes.
  • View number of books read, words read, and
    quizzes passed.
  • And much, much more.
  • Renaissance Home Connect involves parents by
    providing a direct link to what students are
    working on at school. Get Parents Involved with
    Renaissance Home Connect - Accelerated Reader
    (Passwords will be sent home or can be gotten
    through the Media Center)

    book to try to pass the test.

    are allowed with plain water only (frozen water
    should be in a plastic bag). Spills are easy to
    clean up and will not cause ants or sticky
    problems in the classrooms.
  • Water fountains are available.

Internet Usage Policy
  • Southside is connected to the global community
    by use of the Internet. The Internet offers ways
    to share ideas, transmit information, and add to
    the educational opportunity of students and staff
    alike. An Acceptable Use Agreement is used to
    ensure that everyone who accesses the Internet
    does so knowledgeably and responsibly.
    Accordingly, the school has established
    regulations for the use of the network system. A
    permission form must be signed for Internet use
    and to allow us to share class pictures and
    student pictures and accomplishments.

    slip, the student does not accompany the class.

Awards and Honor Roll
  • Students making perfect perfect attendance,
    perfect attendance, A or A-B honor roll, and the
    AAA students will be recognized for each nine
    weeks in an announced assembly each semester. AR
    is also recognized. You can check the web site
    and/or your childs agenda for the dates and
    times when they are scheduled.

  • Homework is the key to success and therefore each
    student is responsible for completing classroom
    requirements on time and with quality of thought.
    Work is due the next class day or specified time
    by the teacher and must be easily located.
  • Students are given time in school to begin their
    homework. If your child is consistently coming
    home with a great deal of homework and/or
    spending more than an hour a night on homework,
    then he/she is not using time wisely in school.
    Discuss this with your childs teacher.
  • On a rare occasion a child may be sick in the
    evening and unable to complete homework but is
    well enough to attend school the next day. This
    seldom happens, but if it does, send in a note
    the next day explaining this situation.
  • Homework assignments are posted in each fifth
    grade classroom. Each student is responsible to
    record the assignments in his/her agenda, ask
    questions, and make sure he/she has the necessary
    materials to take home if the work has not been
    completed in school. 

Study Tips
  • Choose a well lit, quiet place at home to do
  • Frequently replenish school supplies throughout
    the year.
  • Schedule a specific time each day for homework.
  • Give your child help only if he or she makes a
    real effort to do the work first.
  • Review assignments in your child's agenda DAILY.
