5th Grade Newsletter
Monday, October 13, 2014
Here is our first paperless newsletter. Please go to PowerSchool and check your child’s grades. We have sent a bright yellow half sheet of paper with all missing assignments listed on it(if your child has anything missing). We have also sent a quarter sheet with category totals. ALL missing work is due tomorrow, Tues., Oct. 14 in order to earn our Worker’s Holiday, which will be on this Wed. morning. We will play bingo, play a trivia game, and have a checker’s tournament for a half an hour each. Your child will also need to bring his/her volcano on Wed. as well to earn the activity. Students not earning the activity will work in another room to work on missing assignments.
You are all invited to come have a blast with us, as we explode our volcanoes. This will be on Wed., Oct. 15 at 12:30 on the south playground. Please DO NOT park in the bus loading zone.
Our Fall Break is a full week this year, from Thurs., Oct. 16-Wed., Oct. 22. Students return to school on Thurs., Oct. 23.
Reflections entries are due on Oct. 29. Students are working on a writing piece at school that will be sent home for you to go over with you child. Your child can make corrections at school after you go over it with him/her. They are also working on a possible photography piece in art class with Mrs. Davis. You will need to sign the entry forms for you child in order for him/her to submit entries. You make pick up rules and entry forms in the office for any other categories that your child wants to enter.
The fifth grade Maturation Programs will be on Fri., Nov. 7 in the gym. The boys are at 1:00 and girls are at 2:00. We hope that a parent will be able to attend with each child, however a child may attend without a parent. We DO need a permission slip returned in order for you child to attend.
Thank you for your attendance at parent conferences. We appreciate the support that you give to us and your children. Please feel welcome to email, call, or come in anytime with your concerns. The next newsletter will be posted on Wed., Nov, 5
