Hello My Name Is...

Caroline Fongemy

Mrs. Fongemy

Welcome to My Fifth Grade Classroom

Welcome to Jackson Park for the 2017-2018 school year!

I am so excited to be your child's teacher.  I moved to Kannapolis 9 years ago with my husband and we LOVE being part of the Wonder family!  Our eldest is a freshman at Catawba College, our daughter is a freshman at A.L. Brown and our twins are fifth graders right here at Jackson Park!  This year I am moving to Jackson Park from Kannapolis Intermediate School.  I am very excited to be part of the Jackson Park family!
   
I love to read and write!  My favorite thing is sharing my love of reading with my students.  Your child will finish this year loving to read and write as much as me!  What I love most about 5th grade too is our science curriculum.  Seeing the students fall in love with science is amazing! This year, your child will be with me all day and we will study Reading, Math, Science, Writing and Social Studies together.  
Feel free to contact me by email by school phone at (704) 933-2831 or on classdojo. We will partner together to ensure your child has a great year!
 
College(s) Attended/Degrees Earned:
I earned my BS Education and English degree from Central Connecticut State University in 1996.  After that I have taught many grades, but most of my time has been spent in 5th grade.  (Between me and you, this is the BEST grade to teach!)
 
 
Educational Philosophy/Vision:
 I believe that ALL students are capable of learning.
 I teach so that my students are well prepared for sixth grade and a lifetime of
   successful learning.
 
Great on-line resources for parents:
Please also see my link on the left to sign up for Class Dojo.  This is a communication system that will come to your phone about classroom updates and homework happenings.  I use Dojo a lot to communicate and also share work, pictures, and also as a behavior tool.  Please sign up today!

To help in our partnership, you can:

 

  • Check homework folders and planners each night for important information.  Please sign them weekly on a Friday.  I initial each day if all homework is written down correctly.

  • If your child is missing homework, please check their agenda and it will be noted in there.
  • I will use the agenda to communicate with you how your child is doing and our classroom behavior plan will be documented in our agenda daily as well.
  • Never hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
  • Thanks for your cooperation and partnership!
