Back to School Night

Thank you for attending back to school night! It was nice meeting all of you and making family connections.

Here are instructions for signing up for Remind101. (The widget is also at the side of the blog, but has some texts from previous tests I ran.)

Please know that the Parent Homework is not required and will not impact your student's grade. However, it will be a great help for me and I appreciate you completing it.

If you have not done so already, please fill out the Parent Information Form (

Thank you!

Parent Information

Hello Parents and Guardians!

Would you like to get a head start and beat the lines on Back to School Night? I will be asking for you to complete the following survey that night, but it is available to you now. If you are interested in filling it out just click the link below! (I will also have paper copies available that night, but it is easier for me to use the form.)

Parent Information Survey

Sign ups to be an art docent and room parent will be available on paper during the evening.

Science Lab Parent Sign Ups Available Here

Thank you for your time! I look forward to meeting you at Back to School Night! (6pm in the MP and then we will move to the classroom)

First Day of School

Hi All,

Thank you for an awesome day one! I hope you enjoyed out time together and look forward to the rest of the year together! I have something exciting to tell you tomorrow morning - which will definitely be some experience for you. Enjoy your evening, but don't forget to READ! Tonight is a great night to get ahead. I will have a paper log for those of you who prefer it over the online version. (Remember, online stuff for class is not required. Let me know if you need or want paper copies.) If you have any questions feel free to send me an email or ask me in class.

See you tomorrow, ready to learn and grow!

New School Year

Hello 5th Grade Students!

Tomorrow is our first day of school together! I hope that you are excited about the adventures that we will embark upon together throughout this year. There will be many challenges for us to struggle through together, but there will also be many fun lessons and shared joys. This year will help us all learn and grow in ways beyond what we might imagine today.

I will be using this blog to keep you informed on things going on in the classroom and for your homework - should you forget what was said in class or that you wrote in your planner. As the year goes on, I will add more information and links, so don't forget that you can search the blog to find something specific and you can subscribe to it so that it is automatically emailed to you. If you cannot find something or if a link does not work please let me know.

I am looking forward to this year together and meeting you all in the morning!

Mr. Funk
