Fifth Grade Newsletter

January 31, 2016

Dear Parents:

The new security doors at school are installed and are operational. We are pleased to have this added level of safety for our students.

PE Reminder

Please send students with gym shoes on the week they have PE. They will not be allowed to participate in PE activities in snow boots for safety reasons.

English

We finished reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe on Friday. Students will continue to work on their question packets this week. We will also be watching the movie and comparing it to the book.


I am planning for a test on Friday, but that could be pushed to Monday if we need more time to complete our review.

Social Studies

We are finishing our unit on explorers. Last week students were assigned an explorer, in which they will needed to learn 10 facts about this person, and share with me in some way. This is due on Monday.

We enjoyed the Geography Bee Finals!
