Mrs. Nichole Hollomon
Welcome to 5th grade! I am thrilled to have your child in my class this year! This will be my 6th year teaching at Otterville Elementary. I live in Smithton with my husband, John, and our daughter, Hailey. When I am not wokring on school work, or the school website, I spend most of my free time taking Hailey to cheer practices and completitions. For fun our family loves to explore nature through the use of hiking, ATV's, and canoing. I also love to read!
In our classroom learning is promoted through the use of different methods that appeal to all learning styles and students. Our classroom will be a place where students feel free to share experiences, knowledge, and feel like they are part of a team. Through the use of technology and other resources my goal is to motivate students to look beyond the four walls of our classroom to the world outside and apply what they learn to real world situations. Our classroom will be one where creativity is encouraged.
A student's education is the most valuable resource they will obtain in their lifetime. I have set our classroom goals high this year, but I know that we can accomplish great things together. That being said communication between teacher and parents is key. Keeping everyone informed helps keep us where we need to be. A few communications that you will encounter this year are:
A weekly newsletter covering announcements and news from the classroom, this is your best resource for announcements, upcoming events, and our learning targets each week.
Daily communication through the Class Dojo App - I will send home information on how to sign up for this service. This is a wonderful tool for communication!
Eagle Grams sent home by the teacher to brag about your child.
Phone calls home when needed, or when a goal is accomplished that needs to be shared
Finally the student planner will be signed each day and any notes will be included, students are expected to get this signed each night by a parent/guardian.
Standing homoework assignments such as spelling contracts and weekly vocabulary will be on our assignment calendar on my webpage.
I look forward to sharing your child's success in 5th grade, and please feel free to contact me anytime with questions or concerns.
