Grade 5

Classroom Information

Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim.

Welcome to 5th Grade!

As-Salaamu-Alaykum My name is Sister Monica and I am the fourth & fifth grade homeroom teacher. I will be teaching English Language Arts, Social Studies and Islamic Principles for both grades.
I am truly excited for the new school year and look forward to working together to bring out the best qualities in our children.

A little about me; I take enjoyment in working with children. I've spent my childhood and young adult years working and volunteering in daycare centers and being a private childcare provider. I've studied Teacher Education courses at Drexel University and have spent the last three years tutoring literacy and reading comprehension to children at an inner city school in the Philadelphia area. Some of you may know me from around the school, as I have had children attending Tarbiyah beginning in the year 2011. I have also served as PTA President and more recently School Board President. I have relinquished my duties at one role and taken on a more fulfilling path. I am delighted to join the team and guide our children on an exciting journey!

May Allah guide us all and make this year a safe, positive and productive journey- Ameen
As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullaah.

Homework will be posted on this page every week. Check the homework for different subjects. Please make sure that your homework is done and all books are returned by the due date.

All textbooks will be available on-line which is wonderful thing Alhamdulillah as those books are extremely heavy. Please click on the link for Textbook Online Access from the left menu.
Our Grading System will be as follows:

1. Trimester Exam= 35%
2. Classwork /Weekly Tests= 25%
3. Homework= 25%
4. Behavior=10%

We have a strict policy concerning behavior and discipline, as the school policies require you to be well behaved, cooperative, and mannered towards each other and your teachers.

If any exceptions take place punishment will be as follows:

1. Verbal warning
2. Lunch detention, the student will spend his lunch period in with a teacher and after eating, write an essay regarding the behavior that is being adjusted.
3. Contact parents and school suspension consideration may follow.
