Fifth grade students began taking the MAP test today. I took the students for the Reading portion. Most students showed an improvement in their scores. (Yeah!)
Mid-term reports for the second nine weeks will go home on Monday, November 25th. On that same day, Northside will be hosting the fifth grade “Pow Wow”! Students from all over the county will be coming for this occasion. Parents, if you have signed up (or would like to sign up) to help out in anyway, please let one of the fifth grade teachers know as soon as possible. We need volunteers to help out that day, as well as people to send in food for the feast.
Our class will be having a Halloween party on October 31st from 12:45-1:35. Children may dress up for the entire day, if they’d like. Parents are welcome to attend!!
Friday, October 4th will be “Art Day” at Northside for all students. Students will participate in various art-related activities all day. Students should wear older clothes since they will be painting, etc. Hopefully, students will learn a lot and have fun doing it!!
We WILL have our regular spelling test on Friday, since there will be a break from art during lunch.
We will be having Junior Achievement Day today. There will be no Spelling test this week, due to the shortened week. (No school for students on Friday due to a teacher work day.)
Tomorrow: Students need to have the Preamble memorized.
Monday, Sept. 30th – Cookie dough order form and money is due. Keep selling!!
Grandparents’ Day will be held for fifth grade on Thursday. Our class will be eating lunch around 11:05 that day. We are looking forward to having many grandparents visit our classroom and eat lunch with us!!
Fifth grade students have been wonderful!! I’m looking forward to an awesome school year!!!
