Hey Fifth Graders and Families!

    We have begun the countdown...only one more week until school starts! We aren't sure about you, but we are SO EXCITED!  We will be spending the next few days getting our classrooms ready for you to enter early on Thursday morning.  We also hope to see many of you at Meet & Greet on Monday morning from 9-10am.  In the meantime, here are a couple things to know about the first few days of school....
    1)  You can bring your supplies with you to Meet & Greet or on the first day of school - whatever's easiest for you!
    2)  Fifth grade will eat lunch at 12:45 this year.  As the kids (and teachers) go through the adjustment of getting used to a new schedule, we find that many of us are super hungry by the time lunch starts.  Therefore, we highly recommend kids at least bring a snack for the first few days of school.  The kids are welcome to bring snacks all year, but we think it's especially important the first couple weeks.  Also, don't forget a water bottle!
    3) Don't forget to wear your gym shoes on PE days.  You can find a schedule for when your child will have specials by clicking on the 2017-2018 schedule page found to the left.
    4) As the school year starts, we will present some opportunities for your child to get involved.  This is something that is highly encouraged at the middle school, and we like to get the kids started over here if at all possible.  We will put information on this website about the clubs that will be offered, so please check back sometime during the 2nd week of school.
   
Alright, that's all for now but as we think of more things to add we will put them up on this page.  Don't forget about Meet & Greet on Monday (8/21).  Rest up and enjoy these last few days of summer.  It's going to be a FANTASTIC year in fifth grade!
