June 7th - Palmyra for the Erie Canal - According to signupgenius, we have 3 parents joining us on our trek to Palmyra. This trip is free for all students and parents. Everyone will need a lunch! Contact me if you didn't sign up but you'd like to join us!
June 13th - Granger Homestead - This will be a walking field trip to Main Street. The focus of the trip will be on the Carriage Museums. We will leave school at 12:15 and return around 2:30. I am planning to have kids eat in the classroom before we leave. As a result, kids can still buy from the cafeteria or bring. Parents are welcome to meet us at school and walk with us!
June 14th - Onanda Park - Always the best trip of the year! More details to come as we get closer to the date. The fee is $1 for students and parents should plan to pay $1 at the door.
- Permission slips for Palmyra, Granger, and Onanda are in a packet in your child's Friday Folder.
- Parents who are meeting us at GCV&M, Palmyra, and/or Onanda.....I will send you a special paper that gives you the opportunity to take your child home directly from the field trip site. If this note or another note isn't turned in to the 4/5 office the morning of the trip, you can't take your child home. You'd have to come back to school and sign him/her out from the receptionist.
Mrs. Gleason's Class ~ The children are working hard in module 6. In this module the students are working with decimals out to the hundredths place. They will be comparing them and adding them. We will also do some word problems involving money. This week we also took some placement tests for fifth grade.
Mr. Philipp's Class ~ This week the students received their fractions assessment. Please look for it in your child’s Friday Folder. Corrections can be made on a separate sheet of paper and turned in by the 20th. Students took a 5th grade math placement test before diving into Module 6: Decimals. Students discovered the relationship fractions and decimals have. Ask your child about our discussions in determining decimals when presented a fraction and vice versa.
You'll find your child's historical fiction picture book in his/her Friday Folder. Kids love to write stories! Including those Colonial America details in their stories was a challenge.
Next week we'll review the parts of a friendly letter as the kids will be collecting thoughts and details to include in their letter to Susan B. Anthony.
