5th Grade October Newsletter
We have gotten off to a great start this year in fifth grade. The students are
already busy learning new skills and concepts each and every day.
We enjoyed meeting so many of our families at open house and look forward to our
upcoming conferences. As a team we believe the key to our students’ successes is
to have a strong relationship between school and home. Open lines of
communication are crucial. We are committed to working together to develop our
curriculum, unit activities, and assessments that are designed to maximize learning
for every student. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please do not
hesitate to ask us.
This year we hope that our students will choose to be active participants in class
and will review and reflect on information at home. Study habits are a skill that
must be taught and practiced both at school and at home. Ensure that your child
has a quiet area to work on homework and/or studying.
It is very important that the students continually practice math facts and read
Fifth grade is also the year in which students participate in the D.A.R.E. program.
Our lessons are already under way with Deputy Scoggins who comes in on Tuesdays.
The PTO purchased shirts for the students and we ask that they wear them every
Tuesday, at DARE graduation and at the end of the year for DARE day. Be on the
lookout for information about our graduation on December 16 at 2:00. We have a
great year to look forward to with many opportunities as we prepare your child for
