Recent Happenings

What a busy week we have coming up in fifth grade! The Patton Walk-a-Thon is on Wednesday from 4-5:30. Students that will be participating in the walk will stay after and we will walk down together after the bell to prepare. The fifth-grade musical, School House Rock, is on Thursday at 7:30 PM in the Patton Commons. It will be a great show! There is no school for students on Friday, 5/24 or Monday, 5/ 27. Enjoy the long weekend!


We will be finishing reading From the Mixed-Up Files this week, completing Chapters 9 & 10.


Due to the School Improvement Day on Friday (no school for students), we will be taking our vocabulary/spelling pre-test on Monday. All the homework, therefore, will be moved up one day. Students will be assigned spelling corrections on Monday night, definitions/part of speech on Tuesday night, and sentences on Wednesday night.


Students have been writing very creatively with their characters! We have also participated in fun fantasy writing prompts based off of a picture, and 5-4 students came up with what was happening in that moment. We will be continuing to develop our fiction characters this week.


Students are continuing with the energy unit. Looking forward, they will soon be coming up with sketches involving their own chain reactions!
