Vocabulary Parade on Friday!

Hi Parents,

This is a reminder about the Vocabulary Parade on Friday.  We are asking each student to have their selected word and definition attached to their costumes. We will be sharing these words and costumes at a whole school assembly and afterwards as a whole fifth grade in our pod.  If there are any questions please don't hesitate to contact me either by phone or email.

Topic 2 Math Test Tomorrow!

This is a brief reminder about tomorrow's math test.  The students were assigned Reteach Pages 54-57 in their math books.  They choose the parts of the Reteach that will help them prepare for the test.  Their choices for what problems to review are based on problems they got wrong on the Topic 2 Practice Test taken on Friday in class.
