This Week in 5th Grade

Tomorrow we will be taking some Holidays photos so we encourage everyone to wear festive clothes! Santa hats, reindeer antlers, elf ears, winter hats and scarves… the more the merrier!

We will be taking our social studies test on Wednesday and students will be working on the study guide in class today and tomorrow. We have early release on Thursday and Friday this week.

If you are looking for some last minute “stocking stuffer” ideas, we recommend pencil cases, pencils and colored pencils (a refresh on school supplies for the new semester is always great)!

It’s Fri-YAY!

Next week is our last week before the winter break! Please encourage your student to complete any missing assignments or redo any low grades! We have assignment redo sheets in the class (the students know where they are). The new grade of the redone assignment will be averaged with the original grade, with a maximum new score of 80. Also, our Books For Breakfast cut-off has been extended until next Friday. Students need 23 EVRC points to attend, so please help them get caught up on reading this weekend so they can take a test next week.


Yesterday we attended a S.T.E.M. tour at the Mercedes Benz stadium and the kids had blast! Check out some pictures below!


Mid- Week Update

Tomorrow is our Mercedes Benz Field Trip! We are encouraging students to wear Eastvalley shirts, Falcons, or Atlanta United jerseys! Students will need to bring a lunch with them OR they will get a sack lunch which they ordered earlier this week. Next week we have our Human Growth and Development class and MI & RI testing. We will end the week with our Holidays Around the World project on Thursday (thank you for all of our donations!) and our Holiday Party on Friday. Remember both of these days are early release days.


Yesterday, all of the 5th grade teachers took the raffle winners to the Marietta Diner for dessert after school. Our boys, Landon and Matthew, each devoured a whole banana split!

It’s the Final Countdown


We only have 10 days left this school year! As we work quickly to wrap up everything we need to finish this grading period, we want to try and add in some Holiday cheer! We still have some items that 5th grade needs donated for our Holidays Around the World event. You can sign up below. We also need a Holiday home (or a permanent home!) for Oreo.
