Summer is here

The year is over.  I want to thank each one of my parents for all the support they have shown this school year. You all are greatly appreciated. I hope you all have a wonderful summer and all my upcoming 6th graders please have a safe summer, along with a great 6th grade year.

Thank you all for the hard work that you have done.  Good luck and best wishes. Love Ms. Aiken.

Last full week of school.

Parents,  we have just completed our last full week of school.  We have two more full success learning days and the year will officially be over. I want to say that I appreciate each and everyone of you for all the support you have given me.

Fifth grade ceremony  will be Wednesday at 8:30.

  • Also,  don’t forget that  the last two days of school May 22 and May  23 are early release days.  If you haven’t sent in report card envelopes with the three stamps, please do so as soon as possible.  Thank you for all that you do.

Cant believe we are almost done

Thank you to all the parents who signed and turned in progress reports and weekly reports. Also, thank you to the volunteers that came out on field day. It was gladly appreciated. We are now entering our last week of school, let us continue to finish strong.

April 30-May 4

Parents,  we are down to our last two full weeks and two days left of school.  Although that may be a happy feeling for students,  the learning has not and will not stop.  I encourage you to tell your child to finish the year strong.

Progress reports were sent home last Friday. I need students to return with a signature. Weekly reports were sent out May 4,  along with a blue letter containing important information. Please read carefully and sign.

Field day  is next week Friday!

End of the year celebration is May 23 at 8:30 am.  The fifth grade walk will be at 12pm.  Thank you parents for all that you do.

First Week of Testing

First week of testing is complete. I want to thank all of my parents for making sure their child had breakfast and a good night sleep. All of my students worked extremely hard this week and I am so proud of them. We have two more days of testing! After testing, we will continue with  the standards that students are expected to master. Thank you parents for all that you do.

Have a wonderful spring break!

I hope everyone enjoys their spring break and I hope it is a safe one.

Reminder parents: Georgia Milestones begins on April 10,2018.

I  have sent home a handout of websites students can visit in order to practice questions that will appear on the assessment.

I have also provided a review study guide below that can be used. This can be done on a cell phone, computer, tablet, or anything. The students can work through problems on scratch paper. Please view.
