Mr. Digiovanni's classroom websiteWelcome to 5th Grade math and science (also referred to as Inquiry). I look forward to working with your family this year!2019-2020 will be my fourth year at Sand Creek and 23rd year in education, and all have involved teaching fifth graders! Prior to coming to "The Creek", I spent most of my career at nearby St. Michael-Albertville working both in elementary and middle school settings. I graduated from St. Cloud State with my undergraduate degree and earned my master's degree through St. Mary's University.My wife and I live in Elk River with our three kids and dog. If I wasn't a teacher, I probably would have become a meteorologist because I love watching and learning about the weather. When I'm not in the classroom, I enjoy coaching high school basketball and football.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success--let's make this a fantastic year!
Daily Assignment Planner
Below you will find this week's current assignments which will be updated daily. Please compare it to your child's planner to help them complete and return homework on time. You can expect math homework via Student Workbook pages or Home Connections worksheets on a regular basis while science assignments will be more occasional. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
Due to the statewide school closure, we will be practicing Distance Learning and using Google Classroom to conduct our lessons and learning activities through the month of April. If you are unable to access your child's Google Classroom page through the Lock-and-Key, please let me know as soon as possible.
Stay tuned for further news regarding the status of classes at Sand Creek as information is rapidly changing. Stay safe!!
