Welcome to 5th grade class with Mr. Jellis!

The goal in my classroom this year is for students to become young readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, engineers, innovators, critical thinkers, problem solvers, and compassionate citizens of the Eccles community and beyond. In my growth mindset classroom, I believe that all students have the ability to learn, grow, and reach academic success. I want the students in my class to believe this too, which is why everyday students will be challenged to take educational risks and expected to push through failures with determination. I look forward to celebrating every student’s effort, perseverance, and continual progress towards academic goals this year.

To keep up to date on the lessons for each day, follow this link to Mr. Jellis’s calendar on Planbook:


Homework expectations:

  • 20 minutes per night of Math practice at home – this includes reviewing, finishing homework pages and practicing using Kahn Academy
  • 20 minutes per night of independent reading – there will be book projects and presentations related to the independent reading also completed at home
  • Occasionally there may be other projects or work started at school that need to be completed at home on a case-by-case basis.
