Welcome to 5th grade!
Happy New Year!!! 2017 is here, and I am so excited to kick off the new year with these awesome students. Below you will see some pictures from our Scavenger Hunt that we completed the first day back from break. I really enjoyed hearing about all the quality time that was spent with your families! You could surely tell that we all missed each other.
A few SPECIAL highlights from this week....
Mrs. Libby's homeroom won the Box Top Challenge, bringing in more than 1,000 box tops! They will receive a Chic-a-fila party!

Science Fair packets with letters and rubrics will be coming home this week. Be sure to discuss ideas with your student. A timeline is also included to keep students on track to accomplish the project on time. Science Fair packets should be brought back to class for the remainder of the next few weeks.
ELA homework packets were sent home Thursday with a NEWELA article and associated activites, as well as the new spelling list. Homework is due on Thursday 1/12! I will be e-mailing an attachment with the assignment in case any students are in need of an additional copy.
As I sit here with my cup of coffee, watching the snow, I am able to reflect on how blessed I am to work with such amazing students! Truly looking forward to what 2017 will bring up in our 5th grade hallway! Enjoy the snow! Be safe and stay warm! =)
