I am really looking forward to our new year! We have such a busy and fun semester ahead for 5th grade.

We have a few minor changes: students will not need to make a lunch choice at the beginning of the day anymore. They will walk through the line at lunch and decide what they want at that time. We practiced on the first day.

In 5th grade students will also be given the opportunity to participate in band or orchestra if they choose. More information will be coming home on this.

We will be doing a lot of practice with fractions and decimals this year. Our first unit will be adding and subtracting fractions. We will be working with not only equations, but also with models, manipulatives (hands-on learning), and word problems.

Library for our class will be on Friday afternoons, so we would like students to turn in their books on Thursday to be checked in.

Remember that our Back-to-School Night is August 24; and August 25 will be a modified contact day, with 5th grade students coming in at 12:00 noon for a 2-hour testing window.

I'm looking forward to our year together!
