Open House is Almost Here…

Hello parents and students!  As a reminder, our Georgetown Open House (Gr. 1-5) is tomorrow, Thursday, August 24th, at 6:30 PM!  I am so excited to meet you and begin our year together!

I have been working hard to get the room ready for our learning.  I have made it a goal to provide a calm and comfortable atmosphere that will help set the tone for the culture of our room.  I can’t wait for you to see it!

Also, I am looking for more pictures to add to our “Caught Reading” board!  This is something we’ll add to throughout the year, however, it would be nice to have some already up on the board as we begin the year.  These can be funny posed photo or can be a true “caught reading” capture.  Either way, it’s meant to be neat way to get students excited about reading this year.  Once again, email photos to and I will print and post.  Thanks for your help!

See you tomorrow!!!

Welcome to Mr. Cooley’s 5th Grade Blog

Welcome Students & Parents!

I’ll use this blog as a way to communicate important information that affects my 5th classroom. Reminders such as, field trip dates, conferences, updates to policies etc, will be posted in here. Also, you can find information out about me, as well as the  whole 5th Grade teaching team. My goal is to communicate effectively with you to ensure a positive home and school relationship that best supports the learning that is happening in the classroom.  

Please SUBSCRIBE to this blog to receive automatic updates anytime a new post appears.  This way you’ll always have the most up-to-date information on all things happening in our room!

I’m looking forward to a fantastic year!
