Upcoming Events

October 19 will be a busy day for 5th grade. In the morning, we will participate in the Paw Pride Prowl (Walk-a-thon). At 11:00, we will be leaving for Martin Elementary for Wonders of Water. All kids will need a sack lunch and drink. We will be outside all day so please make sure they are dressed appropriately. At 3:00 is the extra recess for those that earned it from the Walk-a-thon.

Conferences are next Thursday, October 20th. If you need to know when your scheduled time please contact your child's homeroom teacher.

We are fortunate to have many Chromebooks in our classroom. There are times when we assign a video for the students to watch in class. To help with noise, it would be helpful if each student had their own set of headphones/ear buds. If you have an extra set at home that you would not mind sending to school for your student that would be greatly appreciated.

We will have a daily snack time around 10:00am. Your student may bring a healthy snack for him/herself to eat during that time.
