Celebrating our Veterans

A paper copy of this will be sent home. However, if it is easier to email the information let me know.

Dear 5th grade families:

     On November 11th, we would like to honor our Veterans.  If you or a relative would be interested and available to come in at 8:15 AM on Thursday morning, please complete the form below.  

     Our plan is to have a light breakfast for the Veterans and then have them speak to the students about the importance of serving our country. We would love for them to share the different ways they’ve served and where they were stationed.  We would also like the students to understand the ways they are able to serve our country now and in the future.

     If you know someone who is on active duty in the Armed Forces or a veteran who is not able to come in on Thursday the 11th, we would like to make a card to send to him/her.

Thank you,

The 5th grade teachers

Please return this form to Mrs. Martin by Thursday, November 4th .

“Talk Time” reward

Our class filled in all of the pieces on the “Talk Time” chart so they got to vote on a reward.

It was a tight race between Electronic time, popsicle/ice cream treat, and PJ day, but Pajama Day received the most votes.

On Thursday, students are permitted to wear school-appropriate PJs, bring a stuffed animal, and wear slippers.

***Students will need to wear their regular shoes to school and change into their slippers.
