5th Grade Newsletter

February 24-28

Rotation and Schedule Changes

Next week we will begin prepping for the upcoming STAAR for Math and Reading. We will have 5 weeks to review everything that our students have been learning all year. Ms. Lehr, our new 5th Grade teacher, will have her own rotation now as well has her own class of students. Students will be changing their schedules based on their academic needs per week. As we progress over the next 5 weeks, all students will be moving around quite a bit, but all students will still receive all subjects throughout the day.

Assembly Permission Slip

The 5th Grade Puberty Talk is scheduled for February 27th at 1:30. Permission slips have gone home with students. As stated on the slip, it only needs to be signed and returned if you do not want your child to participate. If we do not receive a permission slip, your child will be participating. A parent meeting is scheduled for February 25th @ 6:30 pm in the cafeteria

Toy Drive

The Ambassadors are sponsoring a toy drive for Children's Medical Center Dallas in honor of Mrs. Bravenec's daughter, Blaire. The toy drive starts on Monday, February 3 and will end on Friday, February 28. Please help us provide new, unwrapped toys to kids in the hospital who are injured or hurt. Make sure to put the toys in the box in front of your pod. The grade level with the most toys donated gets to have recess with the 5th graders. Thank you for your support! #LiveLikeBlaire
