5th Grade

December 4, 2015

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are now in the countdown for Christmas break. During these next two weeks we have a lot going on to finish up the 2nd quarter of grades. I have reminded your kids how important it is to stay focused and to keep up with their work so grades don't fall. Although I realize it is always hard for them this time of the year! Everyone did a wonderful job making the ornaments for our class Jesse Tree! Also, check out a few of our Advent Calendar pictures below! FYI: girls may wear leggings (blue, black, or white) that come to their ankles and of course they can still wear tights. Thank you for all you do to help your child succeed in 5th Grade! I love my class!

Intermediate Team Advent Service Project

Grades 3, 4, and 5 are working together this Advent to raise money to buy dinners for families in need over the holidays. We will be getting Dinner Angels from Kroger to give our donations to. Each Angel is worth $25 and so we hope to sponsor as many as possible. Kids are asked to find ways to earn money, either through various jobs or maybe using their allowance if they get one. This is a wonderful way for us all to focus on others through our giving.

Having Fun with Science!

Today we played the "Circulatory Game" to gain a better understanding of how our blood moves through the body and the important jobs that are carried out. We will be having a test on the Circulatory and Respiratory Systems next Friday, December 11th!

5th Grade Fundraiser!

Each year the 5th grade goes to the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, TN. The cost of the bus can be a little expensive, so we have decided to collect can pull tabs in order to help lower the bus cost a little. Please pass the word and send in those pull tabs to benefit your child!
