~5th Grade~

JANUARY 7, 2016

Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas break. Hopefully everyone is rested and ready to get back to work! It's hard to believe half of the school year has already passed by. We will be taking our second MAP Test this coming Monday and Tuesday. We will be testing math, language arts, and reading. The tests will be given in the mornings so please try to make sure your child arrives on time and is ready to go!

THANK YOU!

Thank you for all your help with the "How to . . . : videos! They really turned out cute and everyone watched in awe at the skills of their peers. With all the technology on our phones now, I hope you found this to be an easy assignment to do with your child. My goal is to help them become more fluent in speaking and being able to organize and plan a presentation. Who knows - we just might have a future president among us!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED?

Please check to see if your child needs to replenish their school supplies. Many students need scissors, colored pencils, pencils, and/or glue stick. We are also getting low on tissues if you would like to donate a box!
