Off to a great start!

Fifth grade students are getting into the routine of changing classes, homework, and daily activities. Ask your child about their teachers, their friends, and their enrichment/tutoring classes. They all seem to be excited about 5th grade!

Students are learning:
  •  all about the Civil War and how it changed and shaped our country. 
  •  Earth Science, with a volcano project due in late September. 
  •  how to make inferences and provide evidence (proof) to support their thinking.
  •  theories about characters in fiction.
  • how to organize and write narrative essays.
  • decimals and place value.
All 5th grade teachers will be at McDonald's Spirit Night on September 15. Come out and have dinner with your favorite teacher!!
