Ms. Jessica Malone
5th Grade ELA & Social Studies



I miss having all 57 of you squeezed into one room working together!! You are just the BEST group of students a teacher could ask for!!


Parents, if you are not a part of our Remind group, please text @5maloneela to 81010 to join.

Be sure to scroll through the entire website for needed information throughout the year.


I have been blessed to work at LCES for the thirteen years of its existence. What a wonderful community of educators, students, and parents we have.

I have learned as the P.E. teacher, a 2nd grade teacher, a 4th grade teacher, and now get to begin my continued learning as a 5th grade teacher. Yes, I am the teacher, but WE learn together each and everyday.

I gained my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from the University of Mississippi, and am a National Board Certified Teacher in Early and Middle Childhood Literacy. I cherish my time spent with students gathered eagerly awaiting the next move from our current character during class novel. My goal is to create a safe, loving, challenging learning environment for all in which my students build character in the ownership of their learning and future.
Distance Learning began March 25th. Continue scrolling to find assignment resources ...

Important News:

Parents and Students,

   On Wednesday, May 6, we had a pick-up day for personal items of students that were left at school. If you were unable to come that day, please contact me if you are trying to get their belongings.

This week's Zoom meeting will be our last. On Monday at 6:00, Ms. Motes-Davis and I will host a watch party for the middle school's 6th orientation video. This video should answer some questions about what to expect transitioning to middle school.

This Wednesday is our 5th grade drive-thru graduation. Decorate your car if you like and come get your graduation goodies with one final elementary goodbye!

There are two links below for parents. The first is sign-ups for beginner's band. If your child is the slightest bit interested in learning an instrument, now is the time to try it out! Also, the link for the orientation video is posted in case you are unable to attend our zoom meeting.
