5th Grade Newsletter April 6, 2016
Dear Parents,
Thanks for helping your children with their science projects.  We have some great thinkers in our 5th grade this year.  
We will be giving your child a script for the Great American program on April 20, with our next blog update.  Keep looking for an appropriate costume for your child’s character.  We also need a few instrumental music solos for our program.  We are needing (hopefully): “Yankee Doodle”, “New York, New York”, (or another movie tune), “Stars and Stripes Forever”, “Home on The Range”, and a classical type piece.  If your child would like to do one of these, have them let us know and we can have him/her audition for the number. We would like these solos selected before April 20.
We are continuing to learn many new things, so attendance is really important.  Our testing schedule was sent home on a bright red paper last week, and it is also listed on the calendar below. Your child will be in the best situation by taking the test with the whole class at the scheduled times.
