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


  • Thank you to all the parents that took time to come to Parent/Teacher/Student Conferences.  We really enjoyed meeting with everyone and are looking forward to a great 2nd Quarter of 5th Grade.
  • Spelling: Unit 2 Week 1 Spelling test will be in Two weeks.  Students have their new words and will have plenty of time to complete their 7 activities.
  • D5: We will be wrapping up our second novel, Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963.  This novel has mature concepts.  Be sure to talk to your child about the issues in the book.  If you would like to borrow your own copy of the book just let us know and we will send one home!
  • Writing: We are working on revising, editing, and publishing our paper for our personal narratives. It will be due at the end of writing class on Tuesday, November 20th. No late papers will be accepted.
  • Science: We will be studying chemical and physical changes with matter this week.
  • SS: We will be wrapping up chapters 4 and 5 in social studies this week and will have a test after Thanksgiving.
