This week....

We are so proud of how well our students applied themselves to the math and reading STAAR tests last week. In science, we will be continuing to study life science. Right now, we are looking at how human interactions with nature affect our world both positively and negatively. As we get closer to the science STAAR test, we will now be allotting I/E time in Mr. Peri's classroom to science review concepts. In math, we are starting a "Step Up to Grade 6" unit. This is a neat time when students get to review fifth grade concepts while also getting some skills introduced that will be a part of sixth grade curriculum. This is a time when we love to boost their confidence in math skills. We are beginning by looking at negative integers on a number line and absolute value.

We will take a practice Science STAAR test on Thursday in homeroom class.

In social studies, we are continuing to study the Industrial Revolution. We will continue to learn about Industrialization and Urbanization. In reading, we are exploring different Tall Tales. The spelling pattern this week is using suffixes -ness and -less.


One of the RMH 5th grade graduation traditions is to purchase a tribute for your graduating 5th grader. After six years at RMH, they are almost ready to set sail for middle school. What better way to send them off, than with a special congratulatory message letting them know how proud you are of their accomplishments! Your message will be printed in the 5th Grade Graduation Program which will be distributed the evening of their graduation.

Messages are $20 each and can be up to 30 words in length. Messages can be purchased by parents, grandparents, or anyone wanting to send cheer or a note of congratulation to one of our graduating 5th graders.

Purchase deadline - May 6th

Message submission deadline - May 11, 5:00pm. Late submissions will not be printed and refunds will not be given.
