5th Grade Family News
WOW! This week was amazing! We had a team-wide conference night and Science Night this week! They stood by their boards and got to see the hard work of all the other students through out the school. Students were engaged and focused for FAIR testing. They took a math test this week as well. There is a sense of hustle and bustle in this hall way! What a wonderful way to focus momentum before the holiday break. In the next week, we will be celebrating the Winter Holiday with a Winter Program and Holidays Around the World. So much excitement!

Take Home Batman the Hedgehog for the Weekend
Batman is looking to go on vacation with your child! I have some very interested children who would love to take him home.
If you do take him home, I ask that he not be left with other large pets or small children. A shelf is fine where he is out of harms way. He eats cat food and needs to have his bedding cleaned out daily. Your child would receive a Mini Batman Training Course before they take him home. He is easy to take care of. He will have so much fun in your home! Sign up today!
