Ms. Rickey's 5th Grade ELA and Social Studies

  • Welcome to another exciting year at East Marion Elementary!  Glad to have you all back and ready to learn.


    For students returning to campus, we will have as typical of a learning environment as safety allows.  For our on-line learners, assignments and lessons will be live on Microsoft Teams (on the student portal).  Students will be expected to show up/log-on for each class at their scheduled times.  All instruction, assignments, grades, teacher feedback, and conversation posts will be added in real time.


    Parents may email me at anytime with comments, questions, or concerns at .  You may also leave me a voice mail by calling the school at 671-4810 and asking for Ms. Rickey's voice mail.  Please be aware that contacting me outside of the school hours may mean that you hear from me the next school day.  We are all going to have a great time learning together.


    Marion County Public Schools may record online classroom sessions utilizing third-party platforms (Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.).  These recordings will only be used for educational purposes and may be shared on other learning platforms.  If you do not want your child’s image or identifying information recorded, utilize your device/platform controls to stop the camera feed from your device.


    On-line students need to check into each class period at its start time.

    All BOBCATS are expected to model ROAR behavior expectations at all times. 

                R = Respect Myself & Others

                O = Own My Choices

                A = Act Safely

                R = Ready to Learn

    Online learners should follow the following tips:

                Attend class dressed appropriately following the Marion County dress code. 

                Log in to each class on time.

                Participate appropriately and pay attention.

                Sit up and avoid distractions like outside conversations, eating, pets, and playing.

                No extra electronics that are not necessary for class.

                Follow all teacher directions.

    Additionally, please try to find a quiet place for your student to work and minimize surrounding noise.  The on-line class can hear what is being said and done off-camera.

    Online learners will receive a conduct grade for their classes.  Failure to abide by rules and expectations will result in a lowered conduct grade, phone call, and/or discipline referral.
