Fifth Grade Overview

May 17, 2019

Graduation Reminder -  Boys should wear a white dress shirt, BBS tie, and khaki pants. Girls should wear a white dress that is an appropriate length. Shoes that are easily worn should be the choice so no one will trip going up and down the stage stairs. In other words, girls should not try to wear high heels.  No one is allowed to wear flip flops.

Dads’ Night: On Monday, May 20, Mr. Creed will be hosting all the dads of our fifth grade students at 6:00 p.m. He will be smoking some sausage and turkey breast, and he’ll have some sides and other snacks, too. He’ll also have a ping pong table and cornhole set up. His address is 5683 Caney Ridge Circle, Ooltewah, TN. Please confirm your attendance by emailing Mr. Creed and feel free to let him know of any allergies or dietary restrictions.

May Fifth Grade Happenings:

May 16th - Field Day.  5th grade students were a great help to Coach Owens yesterday at Field Day!

May 20th A.M. - Art Day.  We will have a number of art centered stations for the students to rotate through all morning.  If this is something you’d like to help with, we will not turn you away! Students were to bring a plain white T-shirt to tie dye by Friday, May 17th.

May 20th P.M. - We will be having a 5th grade talent show.  This is not for the whole school to watch. We just wanted to offer an opportunity for students to display some of their extracurricular talents.  Last year we had everything from softball pitching to skits to dancing. Encourage your child to participate!!

May 21st - AR reward day.  We will definitely need your help with this!  We will leave school around 9:15 to head to Superfly to jump from 10:00-11:00 a.m.  EACH STUDENT MUST HAVE A NEW WAIVER FORM COMPLETED PER SUPERFLY!!  Then we will divide into groups according to what restaurant students chose for their lunch.  (Students have made choices - but we MUST have enough drivers to help with this day!!  Students will be given $10.00 toward their lunch.  You may send more money than that if you feel they will need it.  After lunch we will all meet at Heritage Park where we will play until 2:30.  Please let your homeroom teacher know if you can chaperone on this day.  Thank you so much!!

May 22nd - Decades Day.  Students are working on a decades group project for Ms. Starnes, and this will be the day they make their presentations.  They can wear clothing that is appropriate for their decade that day. In the afternoon we will be practicing for graduation.  Students need to be present this day.

May 23rd - Graduation!!  Students will need to be in their homeroom by 9:30 a.m.  Students are free to go after the ceremony, no after school care for fifth graders.  Please plan to stay for the reception immediately following the ceremony in the courtyard.  

Bible:  We will recite Colossians 1:14-20 at graduation. PLEASE REVIEW WITH YOUR CHILD.

Music:  ALL STUDENTS NEED TO BRING THEIR RECORDERS ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 22 AND THURSDAY, MAY 23.  It’s super important that they have the recorders those days as we prepare for and participate in graduation.  If you would encourage your student to please be practicing their recorder at home as well, that would be much appreciated!!  We want all of the students to be ready to play for graduation!

F&F:   We have finish reading Jim Elliot: One Great Purpose.  There are no tests on this unit and we won’t be able to take the AR test on the book.  We have borrowed a children’s version of the movie which we will watch next week. It is a very kid-friendly animated version.  I watched it and it is Mrs. Ledbetter approved.

Spelling:   The last spelling test was today.  

English:  Our current unit covers both adverbs and prepositions. Students will learn the difference between an adjective and an adverb, as well as the comparative forms of adverbs. We will also practice making sentences clearer by adding prepositional phrases. Our test over this unit was today, Friday, May 17.

Social Studies:  Students are working in their groups on the “Decade’s Project.”   They will present it to their class Wednesday, May 22.

Sadly, this is our last overview.  We believe that your students are prepared for middle school.  We’ve truly enjoyed working with you and your families this year!  Have a wonderful summer and blessed future. Please come back and see us!!

Middle School, here we come!
