Every individual matters. Every individual has a
role to play. Every individual makes a difference.
Welcome to Hailey Elementary School and the wonderful world of 5th grade! Our names are Kristin Barsotti, Matt Nelson, Jenica Alexander and Mary Gin Barron. We will guide your children through this very important year and prepare them for the great things to come.
This will be a challenging and maturing year for your children, culminating in a comfortable and smooth transition to middle school next year. Our goal is to prepare the students for the challenges that lie ahead. Not only will we expect our students to do his/her part, but also as their support team, parents and teachers, we are dedicated in helping them meet their goals to ensure success.
We are excited about the year ahead and hope that you are too. Please feel free to contact us via email, phone, or letter if you have any questions. Take care and we will be visiting with you soon!

The 5th Grade Homework Policy
The Big Three
In Skyward, we will weight the big three (homework, in-class work/quizzes, tests projects) as follows:
- In-class work/quizzes---2
Our expectation of late work is as follows:
- Homework will not be accepted after 2 days---2 days--too late.
- 10% will be subtracted from final score of paper.
- If a student is absent, he or she will get 1 make-up day for every day out of the classroom.
