    Dear Fifth Grade Parents,


    We are completing writing our PBL projects this week and will start the creative process next.  Mark your calendar for the the PBL showcase on September 27th at 1:15pm until 2:15pm. I hope you can make it! Students are researching topics under environmental, animal, or human rights. They have chosen their topics and are working hard on them!

    Homework: Reading:  Instructions: Students are to read 25 minutes daily and choose two activities per week and write 3-5 sentences on a sheet of paper to hand in on Fridays or the last day of the week.


    Students are having a tough time with unlike fractions. Here's a video from Khan Academy that may help them:

    Due Wednesday: math remembering page 21

    Due Thursday: math homework page 22

    Due Friday: math remembering page 23


    Class photos will be on September 30th at 1:45. Students don't have school on 9/23/19 as we have a professional development day.


    We will be utilizing Class Dojo. Here are the instructions to receive text notifications: 

    1. Download the Class Dojo app on your phone (it's free!)

    2. Open the app and select Parent
