Rm 5 - Mrs. Hetherington

Welcome to Room 5's web page!

I update my web page weekly to give an overview of what we are learning about in each subject. Please also look here for information about important upcoming dates and projects. I do not post daily homework, that is what their organizers are for :)

If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at

Week of August 28-30: Happy first week of school! 

Wednesday: First day of School! 

Parents walk their children in to school and bring them to Room 5.  We will dismiss at noon and there is Extended Day.  Please be sure to pack a nut free snack along with place mat and trash bag in your child's lunchbox. We are a nut-free classroom which means your children may not eat anything in the classroom processed in a facility that has nuts or items that contain nuts. Thank you so much for your support on this matter.

We will distribute books and supplies so if your child did not order supplies from school back in the spring, please send them in their backpack in the morning.

Thursday, August 29th:

Full day of school - 3pm dismissal (there is Extended Day).  Children will need a snack and lunch.  We will be eating lunch in the cafeteria so they may eat items that contains nuts (for lunch only).

Friday, August 30th:

Noon dismissal- there is Extended Day.

Please be on the lookout for important papers coming home in your child's red folder this week.
