Mrs. Rosenberger's Fifth Grade

April 24, 2015

Testing is Finally Done!


PSSAs are finally completed for fifth grade! Now we can get back into somewhat of a usual routine. I'm ready to enjoy these last few weeks of school with the kids!


We didn't get much time this week for reading because of the testing. The kids finished up some activities with the Hindenburg story we read last week. We will begin a new unit next week.


The science test for chapter 9 will be on Monday and the children should have their review booklet completed before that. Then we will begin a whirlwind tour of cells and plants during the last month of school

Language Arts

This week we set up the Chromebooks so they would be able to print directly to the printer in our computer lab. We had a few issues, but we were able to print the pretest that the kids took on Thursday and bring that home to use to study from. It has all of the words the students spelled incorrectly marked. If they lose their lists, they can get another one by logging on to

Some Important Details

There was a permission slip sent home in the students' folders last Friday concerning our trip to Ft. Halifax on May 1st. We will be eating there before returning to school in time for the early dismissal that day. Your child will either need to bring a lunch, or plan ahead to receive a bagged lunch from the cafeteria. Please respond to the survey below to let me know how many lunches I will need to request from the cafeteria. I only received three responses last week. I need the rest of them by Wednesday, April 29 in order to get the lunches ordered for Friday. I still need about half of the permission slips as well. If they do not have the slip turned in by Thursday, they will not be permitted to attend the trip, even if the form is returned the day of the trip.

Don't forget to send in Grandparents' Day forms this week as well. No one will be admitted to this event without having their names on the list.

Mrs. Rosenberger

I've been teaching at Halifax Elementary for 24 years. I've taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades as well as computers for grades 2-6. I'm married and have two children, a daughter who is 20 and a 17-year-old son who is a senior in high school. My husband and I will be empty nesters in just a few short months! When I am not teaching, thinking about teaching, or looking for new ideas to help my teaching, I love to read and crochet.
