Due to the situation we now find ourselves with the school closing, here are some important points to know as we adapt to our new arrangement. 

  1. The first place to check will be on the school’s website www.Saintpiusv.org. Once you are on it, you go to the seventh-grade page where you will find the assignments and information from me.  Any new assignments and information will be posted at 2:30 on weekdays. Check back every day at or after 2:30 for information and assignments to complete for the following day.
  2. You will use my email mroberts@saintpiusv.org to contact me or The Remind App to contact me. I will be available from 8:00 am until 3 pm every day. 
  3. While I would appreciate students to keep up with the work missed as much as possible, no student will be penalized if they are not able to access certain materials due to an inability to access technology. 

Thank you for your understanding and patience in this trying time.

God Bless,

Ms. Roberts

Good Evening 5th-Grade Students,

Online learning has begun. Welcome to the 21st century. We will take this learning initiative very slowly. So, below you will find a list of assignments that you can do. The expectation is that all work is completed before you return to school on March 31st (hopefully). All work will be accounted for that first week we are back in session.

In addition, I have created some online assignments through Khan Academy (www.khanacademy.org). Below you will find the class codes you need to join the class. The first assignments are due this Friday, March 20, 2020, by 11:59 pm. Khan academy is very accessible to all forms of technology. On your cellphone, tablet, chrome book and Ipad just download the app and create a login for yourself. It is that simple. On a laptop, chrome book and desktop computers just go to the website and create a login for yourself and join the classes.

Assignments:

Khan Academy class codes: 5th grade Math (GAR9CCYZH);

5TH grade ELA (4PGR9NH7)… Please use your school Gmail to join the classes.

Please be sure to log on to the school webpage under 6th grade to find the information needed for your assignments.
