5th Grade

May 6, 2016

Wow, only two full weeks of school left! It's hard to believe the end of the year is upon us. Today we took our last science test. :) So over the last few weeks we will be working on force and motion. There will be a short quiz on this. Everyone is working hard on their poetry books with a turn-in date of the 20th. I will not accept any books after that date. Students are allowed to type and print at home if they need to. We will have several days the next two weeks to do some typing. This is going to be something you will treasure and want to save for your grandchildren. Please check with your child to see if they need to be reading in order to have enough AR points for the quarter.

FIELDTRIP TO WKU, HARDIN PLANETARIUM

This past Tuesday we went to the Planetarium to learn more about how to find constellations in the night sky. Students worked in groups to name and write a story about their own constellation. What a wonderful resource we have in our backyard!

Adventure Science Center

Friday, May 13th we will be going to Nashville to the science center. If your child still wants to order Subway, please send in by Tuesday, May 10th. I have extra order forms if you need one. If your child is not getting Subway, please remember to send their lunch and drink. Lunch boxes are ok to send. We will be leaving school @ 7:45 a.m. sharp. I sure wouldn't want to leave anyone behind! We will not return to SJS until around 3:30 p.m. Students will be allowed to go to the gift shop. Your decision on this! Students are to wear their uniforms. This makes it so much easier to keep track of them in the center. I'm looking forward to a wonderful trip and excited for all the learning that will be taking place. Thank you for making it possible for your child to go!
