Grade 5 Veteran Day Speeches

Selected students in Grade 5 read speeches to honor the Veterans. They did an excellent job capturing the true meaning of Veteran's Day.

Grade 5

Grade 5 students planted tulip bulbs from the Wicked Tulip Farm in Johnston, RI. This farm donates 100 Tulip bulbs to Charitable Organizations or Schools. Mrs. Rafetto, parent of one of our 5th graders entered the JFK School as a recipient on behalf of the 5th grade class and they were selected. Each 5th grader planted a tulip bulb and in the spring we will have a beautiful flower garden for years to come.

Mrs. Dunlap's Class

Look at this enthusiasm! One of our math challenges was to design your own thing using base-10 blocks. Each student had to name their design and tell the "value" of the item in tens and ones.

Students in class also explored different ways to express tens and ones during math. Students built things with base-10 blocks, played a math game, and responded in their math journals.

Candy Collection

Thank you to everyone who donated candy for Dana Farber. We were able to provide approximately 10 boxes for this great cause.
