Tomorrow the entire Conestoga Elementary will be heading to the Lancaster County Park for a wonderful day thanks to our PTO! The fifth graders will be leaving Marticville Middle School at 11:30 am to travel to the park for the afternoon.
Please help your child remember the following things:
*bring sunscreen and/or a hat
*packed lunch (if marked on permission slip). Lunches may be packed in a reusable container.
We will be returning to Marticville in time for dismissal, so you do not need to make any special arrangements to have your child picked up.
We are looking forward to a great afternoon!
On Friday, May 12, the fifth graders presented their Heroes Fair to their family and friends. The Heroes Fair changed this year with the switch to a GoogleDocs slide presentation instead of the students creating a book. The fifth graders did a great job with this change!
Mrs. Eckroat and Mrs. Fafel are very proud of all of the students for the hard work and time they invested in their projects.
After much consideration, we wanted to pass along the following information about fidgets and fidget spinners during classroom instruction in fifth grade at Conestoga:
~ If the student has a fidget, it is being kept in his/her lap, and he/she is able to focus on the classroom instruction or activity, we are absolutely fine with the student using a fidget.
~ If, however, the fidget is spinning on the desk, distracting the student’s attention or the attention of someone nearby, or is being used as a toy during instruction or an activity, the fidget will be taken and returned to the student on Wednesday, June 7 (the last day of school).
We have given the fifth graders a few warnings concerning fidgets and fidget spinners. Some students have been very cooperative, and we greatly appreciate this. However, some students are having a very hard time concentrating during class if they have a fidget. We want to make sure that all of our students are able to concentrate, learn, and have a great last three weeks of school!
Thank you for your support with this matter.
