Welcome to 5th-grade at Decorah Middle School. Our first three days together have gone quickly. We are excited for the rest of the school year.

Attention 5th grade students: Are you looking for a quiet place to do homework? Are you having trouble finding a structured time to get your homework done? There is a solution to your problem! You may join Study Buddies! All 5th grade students are invited to Room 220 (Mrs. Suhr’s room) any day you wish to have a quiet place to do work after school with a teacher that can help answer questions. Keep in mind this is not tutoring, but rather, an opportunity to find a quiet, structured place to work. The room will be open and supervised until 4:00 each day Monday through Thursday. This is voluntary; you choose to come when you have homework to do and only stay until your work is done! If you are interested, ask your parents if you may attend. We just need to know that your parents know where you are, so have them fill out this sheet and return to your PrimeTime teacher. Be sure to communicate with your parents about where to go when you are done each day.
