READING TEST

Students finished their last reading test in elementary school this past Wednesday. Yay! You will find a hard copy of the reading passages as well as the scores in students' communication folders this week. However, the test questions and answers can be found on Google Classroom. There were a total of 18 questions, but I curved this test and gave every student one extra point. So, a student who answered 16 questions out of 18 correct, will earn 17 points out of 18. Please let me know if you have any additional questions about the scoring of this test.

IB EXHIBITION

Students in both classes will present their Exhibition projects on Tuesday, 5/21 @ 8:00 AM in the gym. We hope you can make it!

PARODY PROJECT

Students have one last final project to complete (aside from Exhibition) in my class. They will receive an ELA grade as well as a Social Studies grade for this project. See the attached rubric. Please note that this project is due on Wednesday, 5/22.

GRADUATION

Students should arrive no later than 5:00 PM at North Atlanta High School on Wednesday, 5/22. This way we can get everyone ready and can begin the ceremony by 5:30 PM. Boys are encouraged to wear a coat and tie, while girls should wear spring dresses.

LUAU

The 5th Grade Luau is on Friday, 5/24, which happens to be the LAST day of school! It's going to be another hot day, so make sure your child wears sun screen and brings a water bottle. We look forward to having fun and celebrating all they have accomplished this year.

COUGAR PREMIER
