FIFTH GRADE NEWSLETTER/ DECEMBER 6, 2017
Time seems to move quickly. 2nd term ends on Dec. 20. We will send the final 2nd term printout and update for the blog on TUES., Dec. 19. We will have our Worker’s Holiday when we return in January. Information will be in the Dec. 19 newsletter. All work for 2nd term should be in by Dec. 20, but we will accept it until Tues, Jan. 2. Students who are all caught up can relax and enjoy the break! We do of course want them to keep reading.
Remember that we will be doing “Fudge In A Bag” this Friday at 12:45. Thanks to those who have already sent in $1.00(or more). Please send your donation tomorrow, if you have not already done so. Please let us know if you plan to come help with this activity on Friday. It would be helpful to have 3-6 parent volunteers.
We will have individual class Christmas parties on Wednesday, December 20. Mrs. Littleś and Mrs. Williams' class will have a gift exchange, but Mrs. Payne’s class will not. Her class will play group games and enjoy other activities. If you’d like to send a treat for her class, you are welcome to do so. Since this is a Wednesday, we will let out at 1:30. Our orchestra will be playing a few songs (5-7 minutes) at the beginning of the school sing on Mon., Dec. 18 @ 10:00.
The second book report, for 2nd term, for Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Little’s classes will be due by Mon. Dec. 18. Hopefully students will take the opportunity to read a lot during the Christmas break, and work on extra book reports for the Reading Revolution Awards that will be given at the end of the year. Remember that it will take many more than two books each quarter to earn the fun rewards in May.
We also need students to practice typing skills. The writing tests are much less stressful for the students who feel confident typing. They can type stories, letters to Grandma, or whatever they want. LOST AND FOUND will be donated to Deseret Industry after Dec. 20. It is quite full; are you missing anything?
Please make sure your child is dressed warm enough for this cold weather, because we do spend some time outside most days.
Our last day before Christmas is Wed., Dec. 20. We return to school on Tues., Jan.2.
We appreciate the great support we receive from parents.
Mrs. Williams, Mrs. Little, & Mrs. Payne
P.S. Please look for the bright red verification slip to sign, stating that you have read this newsletter and have looked at your child’s grade on Power School.
