Notes from Mrs. Pytel, Mrs. Van Sickle, & Mrs. Bryant 


  • Our 5th grade music concert is Tuesday, January 29th.  Please let a teacher know RIGHT AWAY if your child can not make it.  We know how hard the music teachers and students work, so we are counting on everyone being there!
  • The end of the second quarter is nearing on Jan. 25. Due to all of the half days and the ski trip that week, we are asking that students and parents start reviewing powerschool and have everything turned in that may be missing or redone by Friday, Jan. 18th.
  • Valentine's Day  is nearing and our fifth grade classes traditionally host a pancake breakfast.  This year we will be doing our breakfast a week early on Friday, Feb. 8th.  Please take note of this if your child is planning to donate any food or non-perishable items to the party.  More information about signing up will be coming home soon!
  • Spelling: Unit 2 Week 5 words will be tested this Friday.  No Pretest this week.
  • D5: We will be wrapping up Unit 2 Week 5 skills this week and next week we will begin our review! This week we are studying...poetry, finding the theme in poems, homographs, possessive nouns, prepositional phrases, and punctuating titles and letters.  PLEASE ASK YOUR CHILD TO STUDY THEIR SKI TRIP INFORMATION, WHICH WILL BE ON THE QUIZ FOR FRIDAY.  (FULL ADDRESS, PARENT PHONE #, HEIGHT, WEIGHT,  AND SHOE SIZE)
  • Science: We are extending our knowledge of ecosystems by studying the role of producers.  Students are investigating what plants really need for survival by comparing data from a control plant and removing different variables to see the effect on the plant.  
  • SS: We have started our study on the American Colonists. We wrapped up chapter 6 last week and will move on to chapter 7 this week, Comparing the English Colonies.
  • Math:We will be reviewing Unit 3 this week to prepare for this Friday's test. Please encourage your child to complete their Math redos or missing work by Friday!!
  • Fifth Grade Ski Trip is Booked  for Wednesday, Jan. 23rd at Mt.
