PVE Reading Movement in October

In the month of OCTOBER we'd love to know more about the characters you are reading about. Here are the ways you can show us:

--Decorate a pumpkin with your favorite character. Bring it to school for display. The top 3 votes in K-2 and the top 3 votes in 3-5 win a prize!!

--Sketch or write about your favorite character. ALL work will be displayed in the main hallway.

As a campus we are working on reading with fluency and expression and understanding what we read. Our reading challenge this year will be a little different so stay in touch so you know what how you will participate!

Stride Academy

Above are the KCS codes for Stride academy. Students know how to log on. They will also use their student id number, which they should have memorized by now. This website is taking the place of HOMEWORK, other than reading. The expectation is 15-20 minutes nightly.

Parent Survey Feedback


Thank you so much for taking the time to fill out our parent survey! We hear you and we will do our best to make the following changes:

  • Offer more information about events
  • Have events where you can see your student's work

We know that several of you said Tuesdays are not a good time for you to come to school events. Unfortunately, we cannot change that. Tuesdays across the district are the designated night for school events. However, we will make our events "come and go" so that if you can't make it until later in the evening on Tuesdays, you aren't missing everything. And if you need to leave early to get your kids in bed, you don't have to stay the whole time. Please feel free to join us at any time during all of our events!

Check it out.... It's SOCKTOBER @ PVE!

Kid President! How Do You Socktober?

During the month of October, PVE is collecting socks to donate to a local shelter. Our goal is 300 new pairs of socks to help men, women, and children who do not have basic essentials to keep warm in the winter. Help us meet our goal by bringing new socks and placing them in the “Socktober” collection box in front of the library. Thanks for helping those in need!

For more information on Socktober, visit the official Socktober website http://soulpancake.com/socktober/.

Together, we are going to do something awesome!

Veteran's Day Pictures Wanted

If you would like to send a picture to honor a Veteran in our slide show at our Veteran’s Day Program on Nov. 11th please email them in jpeg format to Mrs. Nassiff by Nov. 1st. If you sent in pictures last year or previous years, I still have them so you don’t need to send them again unless you are sending one for a different person.

Please include the person's first and last name, branch of service, years of service, student's name and their relationship to student.

Important Notice about ride changes


Please note that our conference time is at 8:00 in the morning. Sometimes this is the only time during the day we can check our emails. If you send an email with important information about ride changes that day, please include llewis@nisdtx.org and/or sjackson@nisdtx.org. This will guarantee we get the information in time. Thank you for your help in this matter.

The 5th Grade Teachers

Learning Targets

Language Arts- I hope everyone had a great three day weekend. This week in Language Arts we will be finishing our DBQ. We have been learning about three reasons why so many colonists died during early Jamestown and this week we will put our ideas down onto an essay. Your kids have been working very hard looking at 5 documents and coming up with their reason why they died. I am really excited to see what they think happened.

Math- We will be diving into 4 digit by 3 digit multiplication this week. Our learners will review and extend a variety of strategies learned in fourth grade. We will complete this instruction with the multiplication algorithm. The end of the week will conclude with our introduction to volume.

Science- We will continue our studies of forces. Friction and gravity will be our focus.

Spelling Test : October 19

Auction Donations.....

We are doing weekly Friday auctions, where the kids can spend there 5th grade money. We are asking for donations to help sustain our auction materials. Gently used items, old toys, dollar items, fingernail polishes, notepads, games, g-rated movies, craft supplies, etc. are all welcome. Please send donated items to your homeroom teacher. The students work hard to earn their money, and we want to maintain a high incentive for good behavior. The auctions play a significant role in the positive environment we are creating. Thank you for your involvement and support.

Please bring headphones/earbuds/pencil holder

With all the technology we will be using this year, having some headphones/earbuds would be a great convenience for your child. So if you have an old pair laying around the house that you don't mind losing, please send it with your child. They will be able to keep it in their pencil pouch or locker. Also, if you still have your pencil holder from last year, please bring it in.

Parents that are picking up your child tomorrow and/ or any day after. Please make sure you have a green sign with your child's name on it in dark letters. It is for the safety of your child. It also helps the carline to go by faster. I want to thank you ahead of time for your patience, as we anticipate the carline taking longe than normal this first week. If you walk up to pick up your child, you must have a green sign. We realize that many of you know your teacher and they know you, but we will be very strict with this procedure for your child's safety. If you do not have a green sign, be prepared to show your id. Thank you for your understanding!
