We are STILL planning to have our regular spelling and vocab quiz on Friday. We made the students aware of this on Tuesday when there was the threat of severe weather and possible cancellation for Wednesday. We took last week of due to the short week, but need to make sure we stay on track this week. Please make sure students are practicing their spelling words and vocab words for this week. There are plenty of opportunities (including on our 5th grade Moodle page) to study!
Both 5th grade classrooms are in need of TISSUES and DISINFECTANT WIPES.
With the sickness and colds that have been bouncing back and forth between the students, our “germ supplies” have been depleted!
Thank you for your willingness to help out!
The Chapter 9 Math test has been moved to Friday due to our missed days and late starts. Thank you for your understanding!
If you are interested in having your name entered as a possible Chaperone for the Washington DC trip on May 29th, the YELLOW FORM that was sent home in report card envelopes is due back on FRIDAY, FEB. 8th! We will not accept forms after this date.
Kids at Work Day is on Friday, February 22, 2019!
As a way to promote career exploration and awareness with our elementary students, the Penn Manor elementary schools are planning a special day across the district.
On Friday, February 22, students are invited to wear clothing that represents careers they may be interested in exploring as an adult.
Our hope is that Kids at Work Day is a great way to start conversations at home and at school about different types of careers, why someone chooses a career, and what kind of training/schooling is needed to get started in a particular career.

ALL students have a Social Studies test on Thursday, Jan. 24th. This was changed from the original dates. We are also planning for a Math test on Ch. 8 on Wednesday, Jan. 23rd.
The Social Studies test that students should have been studying for is coming up on January 22nd (5M) and 23rd (5B). Students have been aware of this test for some time.
As stated in the weekly eval prior to Holiday Break, we will be having our Ch. 7 Test tomorrow–Friday, Jan. 4th.
5th grade will be having their “joint” Holiday Celebration on Friday, Dec. 21st. Below is a link to a Sign-Up Genius if you would like to donate any treats or supplies for the fun day! There are a few slots for parent helpers, but we do not need many for this celebration. As always, parents must have all clearances on file with the district.
Next week (Monday for 5M and Wednesday for 5B) there will be a Science Quiz on Animal Traits/Behaviors, Animal Adaptations, and Food Web Relationships. Students have a study guide and should start studying ASAP! Students were also encouraged to bring home their Green Science Folders as there are materials inside that will be helpful for preparation!
