5th Grade

Week of January 14th

We are in the spring semester. Time seems to go by very quickly this semester. Please stay up to date by reading the newsletter, checking planners, and following Red Oak Elementary on social media.

  • Dress Code: Please make sure your student is following dress code daily.

  • Please continue to check your student's planner daily. This is a great resource for communication.

  • As the weather continues to be cold over the next couple of months, please make sure your student has a warm jacket for recess. We like to go outside even on cold days.

  • SNACK Reminder: Because 5th-grade lunch is not until 12:20, we are allowing 5th graders to bring a HEALTHY snack. The snack must be something they can eat while continuing to work, and the snack must not require a spoon and cannot be messy.
