 Conley Elementary
 Welcome

This website is my class newsletter.
Please check it DAILY for updates.
Parent Announcements:
(5/24) Grades were finalized last week and reportcards will be available on the parent portal tomorrow Thursday June 4th..
(5/23) Tomorrow, the last day of school... We will have our 5th grade "byebye walk" at 9AM. Parents are welcome to come watch as our rising students take "one last walkabout" the school. Please allow time to check in at the office and be advised that you can check Junior out afterward if you would like...
(5/21) School dismisses at 12:20 all week. Please be aware, and if you are a car rider, be on time.
(5/21) Monday is our planned 5th grade fun day. If the weather goes poorly, we'll shift to having it in class.
(5/17) Ms. McCallum, in the front office, has informed me that there are about 10 extra yearbooks available on a first come basis. If you want one, please contact her.
(5/12) FAST Score Reports The scores for the 3^{rd} – 5^{th} FAST ELA and Math testing are available on the LCS Parent Portal. Click the icon on the right side of their screen next to each student. There is a video on access if you are having difficulty finding it here: https://youtu.be/nRkLaRQzGZM
 (5/10) Another parent letter about the end of the year activities is going out today on goldenrod colored paper. Look for it in Junior's bag.
(4/13)(5/5) I place missing work lists for both Math & Science in everyone's mailboxes today. I will give them time today to get copies from me (I already have them printed) during the day and tomorrow morning. Mid  Term reports come out next week.... (WHAT) so please look for these missing assignment lists and help them to sort things.
((4/6)(5/4)) Originally posted 3 weeks ago) Many have been asking about end of year activities and dates. Children are bringing home this letter today... (it'll be on BLUE paper)... with dates for activities happening around the 5th grade. This has dates for testing as well.
(5/2) On Friday and Monday we went over the Space Presentations that students will be working on and present in class. I am giving them 50 minutes to an hour, each day, in class, all this week, and Monday and Tuesday next week, to work on the project. We plan to present these 710 minute presentations in class. These are presentations and SHOULD NOT require you as a parent to buy materials (unless Junior is using a model or posters in their presentation).
(4/28) An important letter from Mr. Threadgill concerning the upcoming FAST tests. Click here to see the letter.
(4/21) Late next week I will give details to students about a science presentation/project that they will work on in class. Here is the scoring matrix which I shared with them Friday.
(4/20) A new VERY important note from Coach Vance about the community bike ride next Wednesday... see the note.
(4/18) The plan is to take a math test on chapter 11 next Tuesday (the 25th) and the test for chapter 11 in Science on Wednesday (the 26th). This will be our last major grade for Math this year. We will be spending the last few weeks going through a topical review of major concepts and working on our "Getting ready for 6th grade" material. We plan to spend a couple of weeks preparing and presenting small group projects in science during the final weeks (for a grade) as well as topical reviews in preparation for our end of the year science test.
Here is the Chp 11 test review. It should be turned in on Monday next week, SIGNED by the student and a parent, showing the student's work.
(4/17) From Coach Vance and Coach Kev... Students received a form allowing you..the parent... to opt them out of the planned community bike ride planned for April 24th. This will be the culminating activity for their bike/pedestrian safety unit. If you DO NOT want them to participate in the ride, please fill out the form and return by Monday the 24th. Here's the form.
(3/29... 4/13)Middle school course requests have been sent out over the past 2 weeks... Your student should have brought one (or more) to you. These must be filled out and returned to their teacher for processing.
(8/09) Because Ms. Bailey and I will be involved in teaching activities throughout the day. We often will not be able to answer phone calls. The best way to contact us is through email. I check my email 2 to 3 times a day and will do my best to contact you by the end of the day. I’m sure there will be a lot of questions, from both you and me… My email is christianos@leonschools.net and Ms. Bailey’s is Baileyc@leonschools.net . By using email as your primary means of contact as it will allow us to get back to you in a more timely manner. I communicate only through school email, school landline phone or my school Zoom account.
(/8/5) Click here for the Orientation Day PowerPoint we veiwed in class on Friday.
