Dear Parents,

Ms. White has given the 5th grade teachers permission to allow the students to create tie-dyed tshirts. Students will be able to wear the tshirt on field day and on May 30th. Each student will need to bring in a white tshirt by Monday April 22nd. The plan is to allow the students time to create the shirts on Monday afternoon. Please call me if you have any questions. I am having students write pen pal letters this week, that will be sent to 6th grade students at Saluda Trail. The plan is for those students to write us back, answering questions that our students have about 6th grade.


Thank you so much for everything that you sent in for Ms. Cartner's basket. It is simply beautiful!!


Students are currently working a science project with partners and a social studies project. Next week, students will be given a science study guide to begin working on as a PASS review. I will also have them working on a math PASS review beginning next week as well. We will be working on PASS review for the up coming next two weeks. I plan to given them a study guide for social studies as well.


Beta Club will meet next Thursday until 3:30pm.



Have a wonderful weekend!
