Mrs. Melanie O'Dell

 I would like to welcome all the 5th grade students and their families back to school!  As we start the 2020-2021 school year, much about the way we teach and learn has and will continue to change.  Please know that I am committed to making this year a successful year for all students, whether they are in the classroom or learning completely virtual.  The 5th grade team and I will strive to keep you informed about all aspects of your student's learning through constant communication.  Please make sure that you inform me and the school of any changes in your address or phone number.  In the ever changing world of COVID 19, it is absolutely essential that parents and teachers are able to communicate.  Please know that our 5th grade team is excited to welcome our students back to school and we are looking forward to a fantastic school year!

 

 

Please feel free to reach out to me if you need anything.  You can reach me by email, Class Dojo, Google Classroom, or by calling the school.

School Announcements

  • Beginning of Grade (BOG) Testing Letters

    As your child begins third grade, you will see a concentrated focus in ensuring students can read at or above grade level and is making progress in reading proficiency, so they can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. As part of the Read to Achieve law (G.S. §115C-83.1) passed by the General Assembly in 2012, your child will take the Beginning-of-Grade 3 (BOG3) Reading Test to establish a baseline measure of beginning third-grade reading skills. This test will be administered within the first 20 days of face to face instruction, October 26 - November 23, 2020

  • Updated Social Distancing Procedures

    Information on social distancing in school settings has been recently updated by the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS). Upon receiving information from the NCDHHS, we consulted with the Johnston County Public Health Department on the impact these updates will have on our school system. This ongoing collaboration continues to guide our decision-making as students return to classrooms for in-person instruction.
