5th Grade

Open House

Thank you to all the parents and students that came to visit at Open House. We enjoyed getting to visit with you.

Week of March 4th

Next week is Spring Break! This year is flying by.

Stay up to date by reading the newsletter, checking planners, and following Red Oak Elementary on social media.

  • Dress Code: Please make sure your student is following dress code daily. Jackets worn indoors, as well as leggings worn under skirts/shorts, must be in dress code.

  • Class Dojo is an important form of communication that we use often. Some subject reviews, important class information, and messages are sent through this app/website, so please make sure you are checking it daily.

  • Please continue to check your student's planner daily. This is a great resource for communication.

  • As the weather continues to be cold over the next couple of months, please make sure your student has a warm jacket for recess. We like to go outside even on cold days.

  • SNACK Reminder: Because 5th-grade lunch is not until 12:20, we are allowing 5th graders to bring a HEALTHY snack. The snack must be something they can eat while continuing to work, and the snack must not require a spoon and cannot be messy.
