Welcome to Spring and the final quarter of 5th grade! Things are about to get really busy!
Some of the things you will want to be aware of are
*End of Level Testing begins this month. We will be testing Science on April 19th and 20th. Our reading assessment will be given on April 26th, and our writing assessments will be on April 28th and May 3rd. Finally, our math testing will occur on May 4th and 5th. Please ensure that your child is in attendance, well rested, and has had breakfast on those days. Also, if your child has headphones, please have him/her bring them on those days. Each of the tests have portions where items may be read aloud.
*We will be celebrating Shakespeare’s birthday at SUU’s annual Bard’s Birthday Bash on Friday, April 22, in the afternoon. This will be a walking field trip, and it is always a lot of fun! We will leave after lunch and return prior to the final bell.
*Arts Night is Monday, May 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. We hope you will put this on your calendar! Each class will be doing a performance, and there will be a piece of art from every child on display. Dinner will be available to purchase through the PTA, and you can also purchase your child’s artwork for a $1.00 donation. This is a terrific fundraiser that helps us keep the “A” in STEAM. We hope to see you there!
What’s going on in class? Well…
We are beginning to review for our SAGE tests in Language Arts and Science. In Math we are beginning our unit on measurement. In addition, we are working on scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream to perform at The Bard’s Birthday Bash!
