Week of January 25 – 29

Space Days was a blast!  We had a lot of fun learning about space, as well as creating art projects and making new discoveries.  We are excited to read the students’ “NASA reports” on the planet they discovered.

This week we will be taking the SAGE Interim Tests again to monitor how the students are learning our curriculum.  The results should help us narrow our focus on the topics that the majority of students are still unfamiliar or struggling with.  Please make sure your child has a pair of headphones/earbuds to have at school this week, as the test has listening components and can be read to them through the computer.  We hope to complete these assessments quickly and return to our regular curriculum as soon as possible.

The 5th Grade Science Fair is Tuesday!!!  Students will need to set up their projects between 8:30-8:55.  Judging will take place between 9-10.  No one but the judges and students are allowed to be present during the judging period.  Parents and friends are welcome to come tour the projects from 2-3pm that afternoon.  Students will be cleaning up after that, and parents are welcome to take them home a little early if desired.  Please remember this is a required project assignment for the students.

Homework Packet 15 will be due on Friday.  Here is the Math Extra Credit 15 packet that is optional.

Parent conferences will take place next week February 1-5.  Look for your schedules time to come home today (Monday, Jan 25).  We look forward to meeting with your and your child!  School will dismiss at 2:30pm all week, including Wednesday.
