We have another pretty busy week ahead of us! We are having our Mock Trial field trip this Friday–we will send permission forms home Monday. Report cards are going home Thursday…how is it already 4th Quarter?!

This week we are working on order of operations and world war 2. We will have a test next Monday, Mar 27 over the 1920’s and 1930’s. I will send home a study guide this week that can be completed for extra credit.

driftwood 2017…that’s a wrap

We had an amazing, albeit freezing, time at Driftwood last week! I know it will be an awesome 5th grade memory to look back on. Special thank you to our parent chaperones Mr. Kirwan and Mr. Spessard for taking time out of their schedule to pal around on the beach with us 🙂


week of march 13

Driftwood week is finally here!!!

We have a super short week before we leave for our trip. We are finishing volume in math and will review the order of operations. In social studies, we are finishing the Great Depression and will take a sneak peek into the long awaited WWII. We will not be sending home Tuesday Trackers this week.

Please let me know if there are any last minute questions about the trip. Make sure you are reading the packing list closely, but also remembering to pack pajamas –which did not make it onto the list! Remember to be at school with breakfast by 5 am on Wednesday, so we can load up the buses and leave by 5:15.

Hey everyone! Hope you had a good weekend, and are ready for our last full week before Driftwood! We are continuing to learn about volume in math and the Great Depression in social studies this week. We will have a quiz over Great Depression vocabulary on Friday.
