Welcome Looping 2017-2019 Looping Students and Families!!
 
Are you ready for two wild and crazy years of looping?? If you said "yes", you're on the right team! Mrs. Spring is so excited to weave her crazy magic spell on you so that you go will wild about math and science! She has just returned from Yellowstone National Park, where 5 families (4 from Twinsburg) went wild learning about the natural world. We observed predator prey relationships in action and hiked as much as 34 miles! 
 
While in 5th grade, you will go outside (Center Valley Park) to learn about ecosystems, our first science topic. Predator - prey relationships is a big topic. Also, be ready to get dirty! I am hopeful that some of your parents can go out with us. It's tons of fun.  
 
I will be updating this webpage often during summer. I am hoping that you will spend some time completing the 4th grade objectives for math on Study Island. This program is available all summer and will be helpful to get off to a good start in math in August. 
 
Be sure to sign up for Remind notifications from our team. These are VERY helpful throughout the school year. 
 
   If you have a smartphone, go to:  rmd.at/looping and follow directions to receive push notifications.
 
   If you don't have a smartphone you can receive text messages by texting @loopingte to the number 81010.  
 
 
Email me if you have any questions about the upcoming year. I check my email often. My email address is:  [email protected]
 
Can't wait to meet all of you in August.

MY POLICY IS THAT STUDENTS WILL HAVE LITTLE TO NO HOMEWORK IN SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES (ONLY SPELLING CITY AND STUDY ISLAND IN SCIENCE). THEY ARE TO WORK HARD AND PLAY NICE IN MY CLASSROOM, THEREFORE DOING THEIR "STUDYING" DURING CLASS. I AM ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO HELP STUDENTS WHO NEED EXTRA REVIEW/TIME TO LEARN CONCEPTS. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS.
