What’s Coming Up – Week of May 14 – May 18, 2018

Hello Parents!  5th-grade camp is coming up quick! Hopefully, you and your child are already talking about what to pack and have some things beginning to be laid out! If not, use this weekend as a kickstart to avoid “packing panic” later on in the week…we’ve all been there!!!  Help your child to be PROACTIVE!

We are still working on curriculum content and we are noticing some end-of-the-year tune out.  The weather is getting nicer and students are getting antsy.  Support your child with a positive attitude and encourage them to stay focused!

ELA: We are working on units in reading and writing on Research-Based Argument Essays.

Social Studies: Unit 7 A New Nation

Science: We will continue to investigate the patterns and relationships between our Sun, Moon, and Earth.
