Important 5th Grade Information!

Just a note to update you on what we have accomplished in the last couple of weeks and to let you know what is coming up soon!

We have completed all NWEA testing, as well as, all DRAs.  This allows us to now begin our daily routines in reading and writing.  The students have been working on personal narratives.  We have discussed the elements of historical fiction and they have all chosen an historical fiction novel to read.  They will have a Google Classroom assignment to complete once they have read the novel.

Ask your child about the ice cream we made on Wednesday!!

The fifth grade teachers will be holding an informational parent meeting on Wednesday, October 4th in the Media Center from 6 to 7 PM.  Please try to attend this meeting as we go over everything from curriculum and expectations to field trips and fifth grade camp and activities!

Off to a GREAT Start!

What a great group of students I have to work with this year!  We are  setting up notebooks and getting down routines in Room 46!  The students have been willing and flexible as changes have been made in schedules and rotations.

This year, Miss Wilson and I will be team teaching.  She will teach Math to both of our classes and I will teach Science and Social Studies.  The students have already begun to make the switches daily and are being very responsible.

Hopefully your child has shared with you that we have adopted a fifth grade classroom that was affected by Hurricane Harvey.  We sent home a yellow half note in this regard.  Any donations are appreciated and we will continue to accept them through the end of this week.

Some important dates:

Thursday, Sept.14         Open House 6-7:30 PM

Tuesday, Sept. 19          Field Trip All Day

Wednesday, Sept. 20   PTA Meeting

Friday, Sept. 29            Picture Day

Haigh Field Day, Wednesday, May 24th!!

Your child will be bringing home the following letter:

Dear Parents and Guardians,

To help us celebrate another fantastic school year, we will be having Field Day on Wednesday, May 24, 2017.  For this Field Day event students will work through stations with their class to develop skills they have learned in physical education and have tons of fun!  The schedule for the event is as follows:

11:30 AM – 12:30 PM All School Picnic

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades

On May 24, students need to wear clothes that will allow them to be physically active outside, including tennis shoes.  They need to bring a water bottle.  There will be a station to refill bottles if needed.  Students are highly encouraged to bring a bagged lunch to enjoy at the all school picnic.  They are welcome to bring a towel or blanket to sit on as well.  Students will be able to purchase school lunch if necessary.

We are looking for one parent from each classroom to donate a treat for the entire class to enjoy after their session.  Please contact your child’s classroom teacher if you are interested in proving a treat.

Lastly, we need 15 parent volunteers for both sessions to help run stations.  If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the lower portion and return it to Mr. Peecher.  Please, contact Mr. Peecher with any questions.

Thanks!  The PBIS/Field Day Committee  peechers@dearbornschools.org
