5th Grade Happenings
There has been an increase in students' phones going off during class. This is a big distraction for the students, especially during tests. We realize that students may need their phone after school, but phones should remain off and in their backpack until school is over.

Blast from the Past
In social studies, we will continue to look at the Louisiana Purchase and how it was viewed positively and negatively. We will look at the major events of The War of 1812. Also, we will determine how the character "Uncle Sam" came to be an icon in America and who was the man that Uncle Sam was created from. We will look at our national anthem and what might have inspired Francis Scott Key to write the lyrics to The Star Spangled Banner. WE have a lot of HISTORY going on!
