Welcome Back!

We have had a great first few days!  We are all getting to know each other and getting used to the fifth grade schedule (and the new building!).  We started switching for reading and math yesterday, and the fifth graders are professionals at being prepared for class.

A few reminders:

  1.  If you haven’t returned all of the paperwork that came home to you last week, please try to get that back to us in the next few days.
  2.  We started spelling yesterday and will take the next two weeks to complete the first lesson.  Our first spelling test will be on Friday, September 8.  After next week, our normal spelling  schedule will be a Monday through Friday schedule with the spelling tests always being on  Friday.
  3.  Band and orchestra lessons are starting today.  Miss Almoney and Miss Brennan should be sending home lesson schedules since they do not follow our cycle day schedule.

As always, please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Eckroat and Mrs. Falk with any questions about fifth grade.
