We are fully in the swing of 5th grade and your students are doing great! We have some important dates to remember – August 29 at 6 we will have parent orientation. This is a very important time where we can answer your questions and let you know what’s going on. We have our first spelling test on Wednesday, August 30. The words are listed on my previous post. Thursday we will take a math universal screener. This is simply for us to assess strengths and weaknesses. It will not be for a grade but it is important for us to know how prepared your student is for 5th grade math. Monday, Sept. 4 is Labor Day and is a school holiday.
