Fifth Grade Overview

March 15, 2019

Tybee Island Trip:  March 17-20, 2019.  Slight change of plans, please be at the bus barn on Albemarle Ave. between 12:30 and 12:45 p.m. on Sunday, 3/17.  We want to be leaving as close to 1:00 p.m. as possible.  Please follow the what to bring list closely. The weather forecast looks cloudy with temps 64-52 degrees with winds around 15 mph.  Come fed and ready to go!!

Graduation Information:  We need a baby or toddler picture of each student for a slide presentation at graduation.  You may email the picture to Mrs. Ledbetter at  You may send in a hard copy of the picture if that’s easier for you.  We will scan it and return it to you. Please have these turned in by April 5, 2019.  

Bible:  Please review Colossians 1:15-17 (ESV).  *We will add to this passage and recite it at GRADUATION.* “He [JESUS] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities- all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things and in him all things hold together.”

Music:  Parents, please continue to encourage your students to be practicing their recorders at home.  I am hoping that they will be able to perform a song at some point during the remainder of the school year.  Have them bring them on either Day 2 or Day 4 for music class. We want the students to earn their belts for recorder karate!!  Encourage them to keep up the good work!

F&F:  Whew!  The students have diligently worked to get their books read and now we’re ready to test.  The vocabulary test was today Friday, March 15, 2019.  I am giving the students a choice of skills test dates.  They may take the skills test on Thursday, March 21, 2019. (We will study many times during our trip.)  Or they may take both the skills & the performance tests on Friday, March 22, 2019.  Everyone has to have both tests taken by Friday, March 22nd.  If you are planning to be out of town on Thursday and/or Friday PLEASE let me know.

Spelling: No spelling until after spring break.

English: When we return from Tybee, we will spend some time Thursday and Friday preparing for the ERB test.   

Math: When we return from Tybee we will be doing some geometry activities for a change of pace.

Social Studies: We will finish up this unit, looking at how the economic boom of the 1920’s changed people’s lives in the United States.

Spanish: Our class field trip to Amigos is going to be muy divertido (so much fun)!  5A will be going on Thursday, March 21, during their lunch and recess time.  5B will be going on Friday, March 22. We will be leaving campus around 11:15 a.m. and arriving back on campus by 1:00 p.m. both days.  Please make sure your child has turned in their $10.00, or let Ms. Connell or your child’s homeroom teacher know if they will not be attending.
