Christmas Projects

Good afternoon parents and guardians!

Mrs. Beighley and Mrs. Moyer do some special things for the students to get ready for the holidays. We will introduce our “12 Days to Holiday Break” countdown when we return from our Thanksgiving Break. Each day of the countown, the students will receive a special treat or activity from us. It’s our way of making sure they know how special they are and how much we love having them in our classrooms! 

There are a few activities/treats we could use some help with. If you would be interested in giving up a little bit of time to cut out patterns, or glue some things together some afternoon/morning in the upcoming weeks, please email Mrs. Moyer ( or Mrs. Beighley ( 

Please be mindful that anyone wishing to come into school must have all clearances on file!

Thank you in advance!

Harvest Party Volunteers

5th Grade Parents and Guardians,

Our 5th grade Harvest Party is scheduled from Thursday, November 1st in the afternoon. We are looking for a few individuals that would be willing to plan some activities. We would like to have a craft station and a game station. These stations would each be 15-20 minutes in length. Students would rotate through the stations in small groups. We will be sending out a sign-up genius soon for supplies for the party & additional volunteers to help that day–but at this point we are just looking for individuals willing to plan each of these stations. 

Our party is together as a 5th grade, so parents from either classroom are welcome to respond! If you are interested in planning one of these stations or you and a friend would like to plan it together, please email Mrs. Moyer at Thank you for considering!

Rope Climbing!

5th graders read a story about a boy who went to a new school in 5th grade. He had to climb the rope in gym class but didn’t know how. His friend James taught him how and he achieved success! We decided to give the kids a chance to step into Richard’s shoes.

Ch. 1 Math Test Tuesday

Both classes will have their Ch. 1 Math test on Tuesday. This includes place value, different forms of writing numbers, comparing and ordering whole numbers and decimals and changing fractions into decimals.

Because we just received our student math books, many of the pages in the first chapter were unused. These would be great practice opportunities for at home! We will review on Monday before the test!
