Welcome to the 5th Grade Sapphire Team 

Permission slips & waiver forms for our Tues., Sept. 25, field trip to Devil's Lake & Expeditions Camp are due on Wed., Sept. 19.  The kids will be canoeing and participating in a low-ropes team-building course. Reminder:  Chaperones must have a volunteer background check done prior to the field trip.

Intramurals will begin next week for any interested 5th and 6th graders. The first activity will be Flag Football. There will be an organizational meeting and sign-up on Tuesday, September 18. The meeting will take place during recess time in the 7/8 gym. Teams should have a minimum of 4 players and a maximum of 6 players. You must attend the meeting if you want to participate. If you have any questions, see Mr. Schwenn in the 7/8 gym.

Dress up all this week to show your school spirit and have some fun in supporting the DeForest Norskies! Which grade level will have the most school spirit by having the most participants in these dress up days?

  • Monday, September 17: Pajama Day
  • Tuesday, September 18: Sports Day: Dress as you would to play your favorite sport, or to support one of your favorite sport teams.
  • Wednesday, September 19th: Neon Day. Brighten up the place by wearing the brightest clothes you can.
  • Thursday, September 20th: Retro Day. Dress in styles from the past. Any decade you decide, just not this one. 50’s? 60’s? 70’s? 80’s?
  • Friday, September 21st: Norski Pride Day! Wear your purple and gold and support the Norskies!
