CASH Fifth Grade

DARE Program

On Wednesday, the fifth grade students will begin the DARE Program with Officer Staggs of the TN Highway Patrol. He worked with my students last year and does an excellent job of discussing issues such as bullying and substance abuse.


Please continue to encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes each night. Students will again be expected to read at least five books and pass the AR quizzes for those books. I am happy to share several of the students have already read one or two books the first week of the quarter.


Last quarter, we studied the solar system. Students did some research on the constellations, made a model, and then a quick movie. I have attached those for your viewing pleasure!

Also, today students made quick movies about plate tectonics. I will attach those, as well.
