Field Trip and Report Cards

Hello Fifth (soon to be SIXTH) Grade Families! The year is flying by, can you believe our final fifth grade field trip is this Friday!? If your child is not able to attend but will still be coming to school on Friday I will make plans for them to spend the day with another class. This will be an excellent opportunity to show some of our younger students what a fifth grade respectful, responsible role model looks like. Tomorrow the following letter containing guidelines for the trip will be coming home in Tuesday folders but feel free to go over it now. It should be signed and returned by Thursday morning.

Report cards will also be sent home tomorrow in your student’s Tuesday folder. Please go over your child’s grades with them and discuss their “wins and opportunities”. Discuss goals for the next quarter and set the tone for a strong, positive finish to their time in elementary school. Please sign the acknowledgment card and return it in the provided envelope to school with your student.

Science Update and Cell Diagrams

We will have a quiz over the parts of both animal and plant cells on Monday, March 14. There will be a brief in class review at the beginning of our science block and the cell diagrams to study can be found below.

Tuesday we will start our unit on classification of living living organisms and taxonomy. Students typically enjoy this unit very much and we have some interesting activities planned.
