September 6: Chapter 3 Religion Test

September 12: Chapter 2 Math Test

September 14: Chapter 4 Religion Test 

September 18: Memorare Prayer Test

We have had a wonderful first few weeks of school! The students are getting the hang of switching classes in the afternoon. Please make sure to check your child’s agenda for daily assignments as well as upcoming tests.

Religion: We will be working on a chapter a week in our religion books. We will usually have a chapter test on Friday. We take notes all week over what they need to know for the test. The notes should always be in their binder under the religion tab. I will keep the website updated with the dates of the upcoming religion tests and prayer tests.

Math: The students will have math homework every night. It will consist of around 20 problems. The dates of the math tests will vary depending on how long the math chapter is. I will send home a study guide for math tests so your child knows exactly what to study. The dates of the math tests will also be on the website.

Science: The students will occasionally have science homework to bring home. The dates of science tests will also vary, because each chapter consists of a different amount of lessons. We take notes in science every class and they are to be kept in their binder under the science tab. These notes will be useful when studying for the science tests. I will also put the dates for the science tests on the website.

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome back! I hope everyone had an awesome summer. My name is Ashley Doty and this is my 8th year teaching 5th grade and my 4th year at Magdalen. I am delighted to have your child in my class this year, and am looking forward to having a very successful school year.

I believe that communication is the key to a great parent-teacher relationship. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. You can e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . I will also do my part by sending out monthly newsletters to update you on what we have been doing in class as well as things that are up coming. For individual concerns, I will contact you by phone, send a note home, or email you.
