There will not be a vocabulary quiz this week, but students do have a new list of words to study for a quiz next Thursday. Quizlet.com is still a great option for studying.

Language--We will have a test over the first unit on Verbs on Wednesday.

Spelling--We will work with list #5 (words with long U ) Please look into using www.spellingcity.com to assist students in practicing for Friday tests. Search for the list under teacher "5story"

Math--We will have a test on Thursday, review division and get another new equation (GxE=T) on Friday.

Science--We will finish watching the insect presentations and go outside for a real insect hunt.

Social Studies-- From Mrs. Priego: "A Social Studies extra credit assignment will be handed out to students next week. If your child had a "sign and return" Social Studies quiz this week, it is highly recommended that they complete this assignment."

A Note from Mrs. Story


  • Fifth Grade Service Project sign up sheets are due back TOMORROW.


  • The class has earned their first "Whole Class Reward"!! Next Tuesday afternoon we will relax together with a G movie and some popcorn. Students are allowed to dress down and also they may bring a pillow or blanket if they choose.


  • If you have not already done so, please send in a pair of headphones or earbuds for your child to use at school.


  • Thank you for all of the plasticware! We will be set for another few months.


  • Students should wear Shalom apparel during the Race for Education on Friday, September 30th. If your child doesn't own a Shalom shirt contact Mrs. Crilley and one can be sent home.
