Grade 5 parents,

We have had another wonderful week of learning. We discussed mood in our writing, and drew the setting of Number the Stars with accuracy according to Lois Lowry’s description. Number the Stars has served as a wonderful introduction to our novel studies for the year. In math, we reviewed roman numerals and completed a practice test for the Beaver Computing Challenge. Our class along with grade 6 will be completing this math challenge in two weeks. Take note below of important dates and assessments.

Lunch Reminder

Students are encouraged to bring meals that require little to no microwave time. We want to make sure all students are eating their lunches for the majority of the time given, so that they are able to finish their lunch and have their full recess time.
