- Third trimester is here! Report cards will be going home this Friday. Please make sure to look them over and sign the envelope to be returned by Monday.
- Fifth Grade Play: Our play, "Rockin' the Revolution" will be on Thursday, February 27th at 6:00 p.m. This is absolutely MANDATORY and students will only be excused due to emergencies and illness. Please plan ahead so that you and your child can attend that evening. There will be specific information as to what students need to wear that will be coming shortly.
Changes for the 3rd Trimester:
- State Tests: Now that we have learned all regions of the fifty states, we will be reviewing the regions at random and testing a different section every week. At the start of each week, students will be given a review page notifying them of the states that they will be tested on for that Friday. Please use that as a guide for studying.
- Money: Starting next week, our money system will be in place! This is a very exciting time to teach students about responsibility and how to manage money. Students will be earning money for all sorts of things: attendance, good behavior, 100% on tests, meeting A.R. cutoffs, etc. Students will also be losing money for many things as well: going to the bathroom, pulling a ticket, talking, etc. At the end of the trimester, we will be having a classroom auction and pizza party. I purchase items for the auction as well as ask businesses for donations. It would be very helpful if parents are able to donate items for the auction too. It can be anything from stickers, markers, gift cards, toys, or items from the dollar bin. A good rule of thumb is if you child would like it, so would the kids in the class. Students that bring in donations will be "paid" by Chu Cash. Please make sure all items are new and unused.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns!
