We leaders learn and flourish


Greetings Parents,

Welcome to week five! Here are a few reminders to help keep you aware of what is happening in your child's classes:

1- Class Reminders

  • Students need 2 black dry erase markers for math.
  • Students need a public library card.
  • Students need The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens for Language Arts.

2- LPA Spirit T-shirts

LPA Spirit T-shirt orders are officially over. Thank you for your participation. You will be receiving more information later informing you when the shirts will arrive. If you have any questions please contact the school.

3- Syllabus

The syllabus for fifth grade is posted on Edmodo and has been sent out via email twice. If you have not already perused it and sent an email to your child's homeroom teacher confirming you have read it, please do so as soon as possible.

4-Cell projects

The 5th grade team would like to thank all students and parents for all the hard work put into the cell projects. Students turned in some amazing work!!!! Students have begun presenting their projects. They should be receiving their grades on Infinite Campus soon.

5-5- Volunteer Hours

We host a Class Dojo party every Friday for students that have earned at least an 80% average for their behavior throughout the week. We would like part of the reward to include an edible treat whenever possible. Sending in healthy snacks/treats and drink boxes are always a great way to earn some of your volunteer hours! In addition, we are always happy to accept ink cartridges for our shared HP-Laserjet printer. Lastly, please note that every 20 Box Top points you send in earns you one volunteer hour!
