It's Exhibition Time! We Need YOU!

A Message from the Providence Hall Elementary fifth grade team:


Hello all you wonderful people! Here in 5th grade we are gearing up for the wonderful Exhibition Time! We are so excited for it, but we are definitely in need of your help! Here is a little breakdown as to what is happening and where we could use your help!


The fifth graders are getting the opportunity to choose an issue that they are interested in, that they can then learn about, take action on, and create an engaging presentation on. They will be in groups of 1-4 students, which makes for lots of groups, and just not enough teachers to go around and help as much as we need. This is where mentors come in.


If you are able to mentor, here is what it would entail. We would assign you a group, and then starting the week of March 7th, you would come and meet with your group once each week for around 30 minutes. You can come and meet with your group at a time convenient for you - it doesn't have to be during exhibition time. When meeting with your group, there is no prep for it. Your role is simply to help guide them. They should be doing all the work! So you might give them ideas of what questions they could ask, or where specifically they might want to look for information, or where they might find someone they could interview about the issue, or also just making sure that they are staying up on completing their necessary tasks. This would be for five weeks. Exhibition day is on Thursday, April 7th.


Thank you so much in advance, we can't tell you how much it means to us and to the students!

Our Intervention Teachers

Note from Mrs. Phelps

Parents, please work with your child to memorize your phone number. It's a great mental exercise and in case of emergency or other need it will be much easier for them to reach you. It's always good to check Skyward as well to make sure your contact information is up to date so that we can reach you when necessary.

Thank you!
