Write Your Child an Encouraging Note!

The morning of STAAR tests can be stressful for our fifth graders. A note filled with love and encouragement from their parents can set just the right tone and put a smile on their faces. Please, take a few minutes this week to write something special. Put it in a sealed envelope with their name on it, and tell them to give it to their homeroom teacher. We will be sure to place it on their desk the morning of the STAAR tests. If you want to write one for each day, please be sure to mark the dates or math/reading, so we know what day to set the correct note out. Thank you for your continued support!

Last Week to Meet Stride Goals!

Starting this week, using Stride 80 minutes a week (20 min 4 times a week) is mandatory. Your child has been challenged. We have put up a football field on the wall. Their football player or cheerleader (they colored themselves) start at one end zone. Their goal is to move across the field to the other end zone. To do this, each week your child must meet their 80 minutes on Stride Academy goal. We will have twelve weeks to complete this challenge, including Spring Break. That means they only have 2 weeks that they can miss their goal. If they “score a touchdown,” meaning they met their 80 minutes goal 10 times, they get to attend a pajama, popcorn party the week of the STAAR test. There will be smaller rewards along the way. Please help them in their success by checking to make sure they are meeting their weekly goals.


Learning Targets

Language Arts- We will be writing a paper about the Civil War. This is the last week to meet your Stride goals, make sure to get on Stride for 80 minutes.

Math- We are completing the study of coordinate planes and scatter plots this week. We will take the end of unit test and complete the week looking at customary and metric capacity conversions.

Science- This week we will be supporting math and reading to help prepare for STAAR tests next week.

Auction Donations

We are doing weekly Friday auctions, where the kids can spend there 5th grade money. We are asking for donations to help sustain our auction materials. Gently used items, old toys, dollar items, fingernail polishes, notepads, games, g-rated movies, craft supplies, etc. are all welcome. Please send donated items to your homeroom teacher. The students work hard to earn their money, and we want to maintain a high incentive for good behavior. The auctions play a significant role in the positive environment we are creating. Thank you for your involvement and support.
