Fifth Grade Overview

May 18, 2018

FYI - Coming Events: 

May 21 - Monday - Art Day in the morning and Decades Day in the afternoon.  We have a variety of art stations planned for in the morning, and we could use some help from moms, dads, or grandparents in facilitating these stations. No art expertise is required!! Students will need to bring a plain white t-shirt for this day.  In the afternoon, students will be presenting their decades projects in social studies class.

May 22 - Tuesday - AR Party Day - Superfly, lunch out, and Heritage Park.  We will leave for Superfly at 9:15.  You must go online to sign a waiver or print one off and send it in to your homeroom teacher.   ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A NEW WAIVER SIGNED EVEN IF YOU HAVE BEEN TO SUPERFLY RECENTLY.  After Superfly, we will disperse to different restaurants in the Hamilton Place area.  Students will have chosen their restaurant the week before so groups will be assigned accordingly.  We will need parent drivers to help transport the various groups.  Let us know if you can help with your child’s last ever BBS field trip.

May 23 - Fifth Grade Talent Show in the morning.  Students need to let their homeroom teacher know if there is a talent they will be displaying for us that day.  We will have an indoor and outdoor venue for the talent show.  Some students are sending a video of their talent. Graduation practice in the afternoon. 

May 24 - Graduation - Required Dress:  Boys will need to wear khaki pants, a white dress shirt, and the Brainerd Baptist School tie, which can be purchased from Educational Outfitters or bought/borrowed from a former student.  Girls need a white dress, no shorter than 2” above the knees, straps, but not spaghetti straps.  No flip flops should be worn. Boys can wear school shoes.  Girls should wear shoes that would go well with their dress. You will be walking up the steps to the platform so high heels would not be advisable. 

May 24 - Graduation:  Students need to be in their homeroom dressed for graduation by 9:30 a.m.  Graduation will begin at 10:00 a.m.

Bible:  Please, please work on these every day until graduation on May 24.

 5A: Ephesians 6:10-13 ESV

 10“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.13Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

 5B: Ephesians 6:14-17 ESV

 14Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,15and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.16In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one;17and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,

 All fifth graders:  Ephesians 6:18-20 ESV

  18praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,19and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, 20for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.”

F&F:As we finished the last F&F book, it is my hope that our students have been inspired to read more and to choose books that are good works of literature.  I believe that they will leave BBS with many tools in their minds that will help them as they read through their summer reading and as they begin middle school. 

Social Studies:  On Monday, the students will be in dressed in fashions from the past.  They will present their decade projects after lunch.

Advisory:In our final Advisory time together, we’ll reflect on the things we’ve learned this year and how we’ve put them into practice. We’ll also discuss which Advisory topics will be most beneficial as students transition to middle school next year.
