Student Learning Intentions for the Week

Big picture

May 18th- May 22nd

This schedule is to help keep students organized on which Specials activities to complete. However, students will be able to access Specials activities throughout the week. The letter day will be shared by your child's homeroom teacher each day.


Parents please remind your child to make sure they are completing the activities in the Special Area classrooms as well each week. Your special area teachers are also working very hard to provide your child with content from these specialized areas as well. We appreciate your assistance.


Monday, May 18th is a F day.

Attention: Parents of 5th Graders

Virtual Move Up Day!

With schools being closed for the remainder of the year, our students, especially our fifth grade students, have lost the opportunity to engage in their final elementary school moments such as the Color Run, Field Day, Spring Choral/Band concerts, and our spectacular move up day ceremony. While it will most certainly not be the same, we still plan to host a Virtual Move Up Day ceremony for each fifth grade classroom. More details will be coming in the next few weeks. Stay tuned.

Barclay's Code Playground Event

The Barclays Bank was supposed to run a code playground event for your 5th graders this spring. They have moved it online and will be held on June 5th.


You will receive a SwiftK12 Alert with a link for you to sign your fifth grader up. It should receive the link approximately 1 week before the event.

Time is Running Out!

The yearbook staff needs more pictures of the graduating fifth graders' time at Sussex Avenue. Please upload any photos you'd be willing to have published in the yearbook from their time at Sussex to the yearbook's Shutterfly account here: https://sussexavenue5thgradeyearbook.shutterfly.com/


All photos are welcome, however, if you have any of past years field days that would be especially helpful.


If you don't have a Shutterfly account, you can create one for free to upload your photos. We want to have every student represented, but we need your photos to make that happen!
