Notes and Such From The Class Of The Future


Economics Fair -- Our 5th Grade Economics Fair is coming up in about 2 weeks. The Economics Fair will be held on Friday, December 12. We need to have all the students in the gym with their displays setup by 9am at the latest. That means if you would like to come a little early that morning, we will be here with the doors open and ready for you. DOWNLOAD THE PACKET

Spelling Bee -- As a class we will be having a qualification round on December 10 or 11. The grade level spelling bee will be on the afternoon of December 12. We will start it shortly after lunch. If your child is one of the top 8 spellers from the grade level, they will compete in the school spelling bee, which will be held sometime in January.

Science Fair -- Written information for the science fair went home last week. The registration packet is due back to me by December 2nd. That doesn't mean the project has to be completed, it just means your child needs to decide on their project and fill out the packet. The science fair isn't until after Christmas Break. It is scheduled for Thursday, January 8.

Hope Of America -- The participation slip / T-shirt order form for the Hope of America went home with your child this last week. They are due back to the school no later than December 3, with a check if your child will be participating in the Hope of America. I realize that it isn't until spring, however, in order to get the t-shirts made and the other practice materials produced, we have to have the money and forms turned into the event organizers by the end of that week.

Spelling List -- Our spelling list this week will be Unit 3 Lesson 2.

Weekly Brain Boggler

I get most of my work in the summer

Other times I am not seen - what a bummer!
I look the best at night events,
Where my flashy colors spark.
But after I am done with my shots
Everyone's left in the dark.
What am I?
