Falling into Fifth Grade!

So much learning is happening in fifth grade and we’re just in September! We will be updating the site with the many exciting and fun-filled events and learning that is going on in the lives of our fifth graders.

Here are a couple of reminders for you:
*Students will receive a reading log each week. They should read a minimum of 100 minutes a week. This reading log will be taken for a grade.
*Check and sign your child’s Monday folder every week. This signed sheet will have your child’s current math facts to study as well as reading level. Monday folders will contain graded work, completed assessments, and important school flyers for upcoming events at SHES.
*Make sure your child is practicing their math facts at home. Math fact fluency is important to be successful throughout the year.

Sugar Hill’s Fall Carnival is September 27th! Make sure to come out from 11 to 3 for fun games, food, and even a yard sale! New this year – you can earn tokens from participating in certain games. These tokens can be cashed in for wonderful prizes from the prize station. Also, we’ll be having a Soccer Shootout competition! Think you can score the highest number of goals or dribble the fastest? Come see the fifth grade teachers to compete and you could win a trophy!

Check back soon for more exciting news from SHES fifth grade!
