Fifth Grade Overview

Week of May 22, 2017

Dates to Remember:  

Monday, May 22 - AR Party - We still need drivers for our AR party field trip.  Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher or Mrs. Ledbetter if you can drive for us.  We will leave at 9:15 to go to Superfly and jump from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and then go out to lunch in the Hamilton Place area.  All students have chosen a place to eat, either:  Panda Express, Panera, Salsarita’s, or Big River.  Both of these activities will be paid for by the school.  If all goes smoothly and weather and time allow, we will go to Heritage Park on East Brainerd Rd. to enjoy the rest of the day.  

We still have some students that need to turn in the paper copy of the Superfly waiver.  It must be completed by the parent and returned to school ASAP.  These are required by Superfly.  Students without the printed and completed waiver will NOT be allowed to jump.  

Tuesday, May 23 - Decades Day -  Students will be presenting their group projects in Ms. Starnes’ Class, and we will be doing some “dances of the decades”, hula hoop contests, and other fun activities in the afternoon.

Wednesday, May 24 -  Art Day -  Mrs. Webb and the 5th grade teachers have organized some fun art projects for the students to do that morning.  We could definitely use parental help at the various stations from 8:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.  Students will need to bring in a white t-shirt before that day for tie dying.  Students will practice for graduation in the afternoon.

Thursday, May 25 - Graduation -  Fifth Grade Graduation is quickly approaching.  Here are the details:  Graduation will take place on Thursday, May 25 at 10:00 a.m. in the church sanctuary.  Students will need to meet in their homeroom by 9:30 a.m.  The ceremony usually lasts about an hour followed by a reception in the courtyard.  Students are released after graduation.  May 25 is the last day for fifth graders.  

Baby Picture:  We would like to have a baby picture of each student for graduation.  The picture may be one of your child from infant - kindergarten age.  Professional pictures are best since they are usually higher quality.  Please don’t use this time to totally embarrass your child.  They should be totally clothed; even though you may think it is the most precious picture in the world, they may not.  Pictures may be emailed to Mr. Creed or a hard copy may be sent in and we’ll make a copy for the slide show.

Dress for Graduation:  All girls will need a white knee length dress.  It should be modest in style and not have spaghetti straps.  Heels are fine, but remember you will be walking up and down the stage steps.  Flip flops are not allowed.  Boys will need a white dress shirt, BBS tie, khaki pants, and shoes.  The BBS tie may be purchased from Educational Outfitters on Gunbarrel Road.  The tie is $10.00.  You may buy or borrow the tie from a former student that still has one.  

Bible:  Psalm 121:1-8. The testing on Psalm 121 is over.  Please ask your child to say it to you on the weekdays.  Thanks!

Reading:  We will wrap up the year by having students complete Lexia.

Social Studies:  They will present their Decades Projects on Tuesday, May 23.
