Welcome families to 2020, and to the second half of the school year! It’s hard to believe that fifth grade is already halfway over! Promotion is just 91 school days away.
At this point in the year, the fifth grade team will start placing greater emphasis on getting the students ready for middle school. Additional responsibilities and assignments will help to prepare them for this transition. Please help your fifth grader at home by helping them to remember their homework, lunches, backpacks, and other essentials before they leave for school.
Speaking of the transition to middle school, on January 28th we will be going on a field trip to Toll Middle School. Students will take a tour of the school and learn more about their elective choices for 6th grade. Please be on the lookout for the permission form that will be sent home this week in Thursday folder (along with the 50 states test and fast fact friday tests).
Also coming up this month are graduation photos and the fifth grade panoramic picture. More details will be coming home soon.
January is a very busy month for us, and it will lead into a very busy spring as we prepare for open house, state testing, and fifth grade promotion. Please make sure to check the website and weekly announcements to stay up to date on what we have planned. As always, please feel free to contact me if you need anything.
Happy New Year! 🙂
– Mr. Sasse
