Next Friday, February 8th, the students will take a novel test for the Revolutionary War novel they are now completing. We will work on a study guide next week in preparation.

We’re excited to head to the North Shore Center for the Performing Arts to see the play Tired Souls on Thursday, February 7. We will be leaving school by 11:00 am. As a result, we will be eating an early lunch. If your student did not order a sack lunch from food services, please be sure your student brings a lunch from home that day. The lunch does not need to be completely disposable as we will be eating at school. Hot lunch from food services will not be available for 5th graders before the field trip. Students may have a small snack in the afternoon when we return. Please follow the regular school guidelines when sending an afternoon snack for this day (healthy, peanut-free, easy to eat).
We will have Valentine’s Day parties on Thursday, February 14th around 2:30pm. If your child would like to pass out valentines, please remember that no food items may be attached or passed out. We also ask that when passing out valentines to remember to include all students in the class. Students will be given a class list, or it can be found here. We will not be decorating boxes or bags to collect valentines in class. Students are welcome to craft something at home, or can be given a plastic bag to collect valentines in class that day.
At the end of February, 5th Grade will have the annual Erin’s Law Presentations. These will be given by our wonderful social worker, Mrs. Judy Thompson. Each 5th grade class is scheduled sometime throughout the week of February 25th. If you would like any further information about Erin’s Law, our district website has some resources you can explore.
