Paula Horning

    Welcome to Fifth Grade
I am so excited to be your teacher this year. My name is Paula Horning and I graduated from Elon University with a BA in Educatiion K-6th grade. I feel honored to be a part in your child's education. I believe that it takes hard work and dedication from the student, parent and me, the teacher. I promise to do everything I can to meet all your child's educational goals.  I believe that with hard work, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. My moto is
    Good Better Best
    Never Let It Rest 
    Till your Good is Better
    And your Better is BEST!!!!!
Please check over your child's homework every night before signing the homework note pad. I am still having problems with ALL STUDENTS finishing homework. Please let your child know how important practice is in learning new concepts. With practice they will learn faster and more efficiently. If they work hard, doing all their work, then they will never have homework on the weekend.
 I have been disappointed that I have only had one day when every student did their homework. This is unacceptable!! I really need for you to sign the homework pad AFTER checking the homework saying that they have finished it.
Friday or Weekly folders should be emptied each week. The only papers to sign are graded quizzes and tests (hopefully they will be in the daily folder)
Remember any concerns for your child, please let me know ASAP. No time to waste!
