                                            FIFTH GRADE NEWSLETTER

Dear Parents,

       Here's what's coming up for the rest of the month of December:
On Friday (18th) we'll have a Christmas party in the afternoon. We'll play some group games, make music with the bells, and share some treats while we watch The Christmas Carol. If you would like to send treats (enough for 31), you are welcome to do so.  If you do want to send food items, remember, they need to be store bought. 
      Our students presented their book projects in class today. They did excellent jobs, all of them. A few still need to present tomorrow. Our next book project will be in February and will be a Battle Book.  A few students have read only two or three books this school year. Others have read ten or more! Students should be reading 30 minutes every night. Please encourage your child to make this a habit.
      I sent home students' progress report totals today. If your child is missing any work, please help them catch up before the break. I will keep them in for afternoon recess tomorrow and Friday to help make this happen. I really want every student to qualify for our next Worker's Holiday.
      I also need students to practice their typing skills. They can type a page out of a book or type a letter to grandma, but they should be typing between 15-20 words per minute by now.
      FYI: SEPs will be the first week of February. This is sooner than it ever has been, so put that on your calendars. 
     Our LOST and FOUND pile of coats, jackets, gloves, etc. is becoming a mountain. If you are missing any of these items, please come and look through the pile. It will all be donated to Deseret Industries during the Christmas break.
        I really appreciate the great support I receive from all of  you!  I feel very blessed to be teaching students who are kind, respectful, and are conscientious workers. You are great parents.
     Have a Merry Christmas filled with wonderful memories!
                                                           Mrs. Jeanne Payne
