5th Grade Newsletter

April 4th - April 8th


The state finally got the tests up and running! We completed all of the ELA tests this week! We will move on to math this next week and then science after that. Please keep reminding your students that they need to get lots of rest in order to be completely ready for each test.

Upcoming Field Trip Information

Strataca Salt Mine Field Trip

Date: Tuesday, March 17th

Time: Approximately 8:15 - 3:00 pm

Cost: $8.00 per student and $12.00 per adult

More details and Permission Slips to come!

Please read the information below regarding parent drivers.

Due to Strataca policy, only a limited number of parents can accompany us in the salt mine. Siblings are not allowed. We can only have 5 or 6 drivers per class (depending on the class size). Since there is a limited number of drivers, we are requiring that anyone who drives be able to hold 5 or more students in their car. To be fair about this, we are going to open a Sign Up Genius link on Thursday, April 12th at 7:00 PM for a first-come-first-serve sign up. We know that this is a popular field trip for parents to want to drive on and unfortunately we can't have everyone go like we would like. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to e-mail your child's homeroom teacher.

If you are unable to drive to the Salt Museum, please know that just 8 days later, we will be going to Colwich City Park for our class picnic and we will need as many drivers as we can get for that field trip!
