Save the Date: 5th Grade Send Off

On Tuesday, June 7th at 2:30pm we will be having our 5th Grade Send Off. Invitations/information went home in last week's Monday Folder.

Celebrating Dr. Light

Dr. Gina Light, our media specialist, will be retiring after this school year. On Friday, May 27th students have been asked to dress as their favorite book character in her honor. If 5th grade students don't have a favorite character or can't think of an idea, we've asked them to dress in stripes for the book "A Bad Case of Stripes."

What Are We Working On This Week?

Character Education: Review of all character traits

Reader's Workshop: Reviewing reading skills

Spelling/Word Study: Study week 30 words. Test will be on Friday! This is our LAST test!

Writer's Workshop: Opinion writing unit about zoos. It is okay to help them revise/edit their paper, but let it still be their writing. Final draft must be typed by Thursday!

Math: Unit 9 Multiplication and Division with Fractions

Science: Paper roller coasters!

Social Studies and Health: These subjects are taught by Mrs. Kornder. Please check your child's agenda daily to see if they have homework in these areas.
