Class Dojo is a communication tool every teacher uses. There, you are able to get information about your child’s classroom as well as message their teacher. You can also email us from our class pages on the Allendale website.

The hours that we work every day are: M - F: 9:00 am - 3:55 pm.
Parents are encouraged to email/DOJO throughout the week as needed with questions or concerns. If it is after schools hours, we will respond the next business day.



Regular attendance is essential for academic success. Teachers will be taking daily attendance and tracking students’ participation in school, Google Meetings, and assignments. Your student’s participation is expected and required. Not only will this ensure your child’s success, but will be necessary to promote your child to the 6th grade. Participation and work are expected and graded for in-person and virtual learning.


Students will either:

1. Be Face to Face at Allendale


2. In a virtual class with Mrs. Persichetti using Google Meet.

Academics - Pacing Guides


A pacing guide is used by teachers in order to make sure the standards for the grade level are taught.  This is a guide that we will use throughout the year. The dates may change depending on how the students are learning the content. This, however, is a general outline of what and when your child will be learning throughout the year. Due to the consequences from the pandemic, standards that need to be reviewed or taught more thoroughly from the previous grade have also been added.

Students may not, at any time, take pictures or record any part of the course materials or live meetings that they participate in. Doing so will result in disciplinary action per the student code of conduct.
