Good Job!

I am very proud of my class for trying hard on the ITBS! We had a successful week and will get the reports back for the tests in about six weeks. Overall, we had great attendance and only have a few make ups. Remember Friday is the Rockin' Lockin. What a great way to start getting to know our new classmates from the north!

Happy New Year!

Wow! We were just getting used to writing 2010 on our papers and now we need to write 2011. I hope everyone had a great break and is ready to jump in and learn. January is a busy month. The fifth grade will be having a DARE practice and graduation in a few weeks. A note will be coming home when all the details are worked out. Also, at the end of the month is the ITBS tests. Make sure your students is getting lots of rest so they are ready to do their best on the tests.

This week is a three day band week, so 5th grade students need instruments on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
