Fifth Grade Overview

September 14, 2018

Middle School Visit Days:  We’ve had a few emails already letting us know that students are scheduled for middle school visits.  Thank you for letting us know ahead of time. Would you please send us a reminder a day or two before the actual day?  We have a lot of students to keep up with. We will get a makeup memo to your student the day before with work expected to be returned they day after the visit.  

Moms’ Night Out was a big success!  About twenty moms were able to attend and enjoy a delicious meal prepared by Mrs. Gruner.  Thank you for graciously opening your house to us. See the dates to remember section to make plans to attend future fun events.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION:  These are due October 24 (which is a corrected date from what was printed on the baggies given at registration).  Thanks to those of you have sent them in - they are a great boost to our classroom funds.

Tybee Island:  The second payment/deposit of $30.00 will be due Friday, September 21, 2018.   Also, you may choose to pay the entire amount, which is $250.00.  You may also choose whatever increments of payments that suit your family’s needs, just as long as full payment has been made by March 1, 2019.  Our regular monthly payments will be $30.00 with one month being $40.00. You may pay with cash or checks made out to BBS. We are now offering the option to pay with a credit card in the office.  Additional charges may apply when credit cards are used.

DATES TO REMEMBER:

September 13:  Thanks to all the parents who transported and chaperoned our first field trip this year.  It was a great day.

September 20:   BBS Open House - 6:30 p.m.  Hope to see everyone here.

This is also fifth grade picture day.  These are individual pictures. Students should wear a nice outfit for the picture.  IF they plan to change clothes after pictures then they should bring a school uniform to change into.  

September 21:  The second $30.00 Tybee payment is due, and the Fifth Grade Outdoor Family Film Night at the BX. We will gather on the BX field at 7:00.  Sunset is around 7:30 that evening, so we will start our movie, the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, close to that time.  Bring a blanket, lawn chairs, and the whole family.  Drinks and snacks will be provided.

The 21st will also be Civil War Day for fifth grade.  We will spend the day doing games and other fun activities that relate to the Civil War era.  Students may dress in period costumes that day, but it is not required. If they choose not to dress up, then they need to wear regular uniform clothes.

September 24:  Dads’ Night Out at Mr. Creed’s house at 6:00 p.m.

Bible: This week we will dive back into our study of the life of Jesus using the Gospel of John. The discussions have been awesome! 4th and 5th have also received their prayer journals for an in-class, structured prayer time.
