Fifth Grade Science                                                                         Centerville-Abington Elementary 

 Fifth-Grade General information for parents:


Students will have lockers and be expected to keep them clean and organized. If you are not seeing papers come home, they are most likely in there.

We have the latest lunch period and students will be encouraged to bring a snack to eat, and a water bottle if needed. Avoid things that can be messy (yogurt, pudding,…).


We will switch classes, but it will be with a group and all on the same floor. It really isn’t as scary as it sounds to some students.

Your teachers will be:

Mr. Talbot -- Science     

Mrs. Kassens -- Reading

Mrs. Foster – Lang. Arts

Mrs. Elstro -- Social Studies

Mrs. Tedder – Math       


·       Students will be expected to have an AR book to read in class and at home.

·       Expect homework and/or projects every night.

·       Fifth grade will need parent volunteers for the book fair, and chaperones for field trips.

·       Parent/Teacher conferences will be in October. We will send you information on this closer to the time for this.




Welcome to fifth grade, it will be a great year!
