Room Mom

I am in need of TWO Room Parents this year. The PTO is requesting each class (Virtual and F2F) have TWO room parents.  Room Parent duties will help with communication between the teacher and class parents. They will help organize class parties, teachers gifts, etc. While parents are not allowed on campus at this time, restrictions may be lifted throughout the year, and room parents will need to be in place if that occurs.  If you are interested, please send your name, email and phone number to me and I will forward to Samantha Herington our PTO Vice President.  Thanks!!

Message for 5th grade Parents

Good Morning 5th Grade Parents!

I just wanted to send out another reminder about the slideshow I am putting together to honor our 5th graders this year. I am asking that every child send me a baby/toddler photo and a recent photo. These photos do need to be school appropriate for the slideshow, so if you are in doubt, please choose another.


Sometimes the school e-mail blocks attachments, so please send them to me via e-mail as a JPEG or PDF to  britneyculver@tomballisd.net  and  britney.culver@yahoo.com. I will always reply back when I receive them, so if you don't hear back from me, please follow up. Please include your child's name in the e-mail so that I can get their photos on the correct slide.


As of this morning, I am still missing about 83 student photos. If you can send them in ASAP, it helps me get get the timing and everything right with this slideshow. :o)  The last day I will accept them is May 22nd. If you have any amazing photos from class parties or school events that only include 5th grade students at our school, please feel free to send those as well! 


Have a great day and let me know if you have any questions!

ELA Google Classroom!

I hope all of you are doing well amidst the current situation we are all in. I am happy to inform you that my google classroom is up and running however assignments will begin to be posted starting NEXT MONDAY. Each Monday at 8:00 A.M students will be able to view the assignments for ELA and work on them at their own pace throughout the week. I will only be posting two ELA assignments weekly at this time, per district guidelines. They can choose to do it all in one day or space it out throughout the week.
My goal is that my students stay engaged in their learning while also not feeling overwhelmed. My conference time will be on Tuesday's  from 9:30-10:00 should you need to have an immediate response to your email. Aside of that feel free to email me anytime during M-F and I will get back to you as soon as I can. 
I have sent an invite for your child to join my google classroom so please have them log in asap and check to see the invite so they can have access to my classroom:)
