FSA Practice ONLINE (See separate smore communication)
Due to the fact that our assessment is on the computer this year, 5th grade is HIGHLY ENCOURAGING all students to go online and practice taking a simulated test using all the tools. Please follow the instructions provided in the .pdf link (separate smore communication). Students will benefit greatly having the extra practice before the test.
End of the Year Event/ Student Consumables Fee
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We are working on scheduling end of the year event for our 5th graders. In order to put on a great event for our students, please consider paying the student consumables fee. This will help up determine what kind of BUDGET we will have for their end of the year event. Please see the link for the student consumables fee so we can send our 5th graders to middle school with the most rocking end-of-the-year event ever!

5th Grade Professor Corner
Miss Anderson's Language Arts Class
This week, students learned about the universe in the first lesson of our new cross-curricular science unit! Students really seem to enjoy this subject as it allows us to not only practice our reading skills, but also learn some interesting science facts!
Our next novel study will be Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper. Students should have their copies of the novel already, since we are beginning to read on Monday. I do not have any extra copies this quarter, so please make arrangements for your child to get a copy of this novel, either through purchase or borrowed from a local library.

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!
