Grade 5 parents,

Wow, I cannot believe we only have two more weeks till Christmas break. This past week we focused on sentence diagramming in language and learned how to reduce fractions and change improper fractions to mixed numbers in math.

Take a look below at all important announcements pertaining to our second last week of school before the holiday season.

Winter Clothing

With the winter weather setting in, please make sure your child comes to school with enough clothing to keep them warm during recess.

Christmas Outreach Project

Tomorrow, December 5th, is the deadline for bringing in Christmas items for the residents at the Prince Edward Home. Grade 5 has been asked to purchase the following items: body wash, hand lotion, bath balms, deodorants, disposable razors, powder, toothpaste, and toothbrushes. Thank you for all of your generous donations.
