Hello Grade 5’s



Welcome to Mr. Fox’s Grade 5 class website for the 2016-2017 school year.
From here you can find current information about what is going on in our classroom, view assignments, due dates and notes that have been sent home. It will also be a place for students to show off work from class and share their ideas with the world.
You can also sign up for my Twitter updates at @MrIFox or text message updates at Remind101.
There are links along the top of the page that link to the various aspects of the curriculum being covered.

As always important notes will still come home as a paper copy or through the email address you’ve provided to the school.
