    Dear Fifth Grade Parents,


    Students have been researching for their PBL this past week. Our PBL showcase is on 2/28/20 in the afternoon. I hope you can join us for it!

    Our PBL driving question is: How can my knowledge of body systems be used to devise an intervention plan to remain healthy?


    We have next Monday, 1/20/20 off to observe Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday.



    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.
