picnic plans

Well the weather tomorrow looks very hit or miss. We will decide in the morning whether we go to the park or not, so we will plan for both. If you are planning to come to the picnic, call the school after 11 am to find out where we are!

Students need to bring:

  1. green 5th grade shirt if possible
  2. games (board games, cards, etc)
  3. a blanket or towel
  4. electronics (optional)
  5. playground equipment
  6. any other rainy day activity

I really really hope we can go to the park! Please let me know if you have any questions.

It looks like there may be some rain on Monday, so we need to come up with an alternative plan for the picnic. If there is any chance of rain by Monday, we are asking students to bring in board games, electronics, and a blanket/beach towel.

week of may 15

Last full week of school….how did this happen?!

It’s always bittersweet in 5th grade this time of year…and very busy. I can’t begin to express what an incredible year it has been. I’ve said it so many times, but we have had the best class in the world this year!


  • Chickfila Luncheon orders and payment are due tomorrow! Lunch will start at 10:45 on the last day of school, and the 5th grade walk will follow. Parents are invited to any of these events! But remember, all food must be pre-ordered.
  • Career Presentations are this Wednesday! Projects are due at this time, and parents are invited to come view presentations in the cafeteria from 9-9:30.
  • Thursday afternoon we will be having a yearbook signing for 5th graders.
  • 5th Grade Picnic is next Monday, May 22 at Terrell Mill Park. We will be leaving around 9 to walk to the park, and returning around 2.
  • Tuesday Trackers – there will be a lot of important information in folders this week. Please review carefully, and return any signed materials as soon as possible.


homework: unit 16 vocabulary, quiz friday.

5th Grade Luncheon

We will be having a luncheon for 5th graders and their families on the last day of school. Parents and family members will be able to pre-order Chick-fil-a for lunch. Flyers went home in the Tuesday Tracker, and final order and payment are due Monday!

Luncheon Order Form

Student lunches are already provided, so it’s only necessary to order food for additional family members.

This is always a special event for 5th graders. Hope to see you all there!
