Muddy Sneakers!

As you may have noticed, our final expeditions have been hard to accomplish! Our plan is to make it to our 'Force & Motion' expedition tomorrow. This will be a half day walking trip to Weaver Park. We will leave school at 12:20 and return by 2:45. Please consider attending this exciting afternoon activity!

Our final experience with Muddy Sneakers is currently set to take place on Friday, May 27th. This will be our Aquatic Ecosystem trip. We will be set to do a stream study and will classify living organisms we capture (and release) in our local Reems Creek. Students will need to be prepared with shoes that are close-toed and can get wet. I will send a more detailed list for this trip next week.

EOG Testing

We plan to take 5th grade Math EOG tests on Wednesday, May 25th. The EOG test for 5th grade Reading will be taken on Thursday, May 26th. Our 5th grade Science test (completed online) will be taken on Wednesday, June 1.

Please make sure that your student is well-rested and arrives on time or a little early for school. We plan to begin testing no later than 830 each day.

I would like to have healthy breakfast items available for students on all three test mornings. Please consider sending in items to share. Please email me if you have questions or need ideas about what to send.

If you are interested in being a proctor, please let me know. We have a need for additional people to help monitor our testing sessions.

Reading Buddies!

This year, our class has enjoyed time with our reading buddies in 2nd grade. Mrs. Morris's class is also our EOG Buddy class. This past week, we received some sweet encouragement from them in the form of cookies and hand-written cards. Please enjoy the pictures of our sweet partnership below.

End of Year Clean Out!

As the next few weeks pass, you can expect that your child will bring home many more finished projects as well as notebooks and other items that have been with us for a large part of the year. Students have worked very hard this year to complete the rigorous 5th grade content set before them. I hope you enjoy the fruits of their labor! :)
