Scholastic Book Orders

Our first book order for the year is coming home! If you have never ordered before, please consider doing so. This is a great opportunity for you to select age appropriate books with your child, while at the same time, earning free books for our class! Each time you order books, our class accumulates points that we can use to add to our library! If you would like to order, send in a check or money order made out to "Scholastic Book Clubs". No cash, please. All orders are due back by Wednesday, September 11th.


We desperately need tissues for our classroom! We have only had four donations so far this year, and the students are on the last box. If everyone could donate 2 or 3 boxes, that could last us all year. If you do not want to send in boxes, you could donate 2 or 3 dollars and I will go purchase them myself. Thanks!

Math Test

Students should be studying for their Unit 1 Math test this weekend. They received a study guide on Thursday and the test will be Tuesday.

DARE and 4H

This week, students will begin DARE and 4H. DARE will be a weekly program in which students will learn how to resist drugs and how to deal with peer pressure. You will be receiving a paper next week that will need to be signed and returned in order for your child to participate. 4H is a monthly program that will help reinforce Social Studies concepts taught in 5th grade. Each month, they will receive a newsletter from the 4H instructor.

Picture Day

September 18th will be picture day at our school. More information will be coming home soon.

School Fees

I have been asked by the office to send home a reminder that school fees are now overdue if you have not already paid them. It is very important for us to collect fees each year because this is how our school and classes get money in order to buy supplies need each year such as workbooks, materials for projects, textbooks, etc. Please contact the office if you need the amount due.
