Students have a writing assignment that is due this Friday. They wrote the rough draft of their feature articles yesterday in school. I suggested they bring their writing notebooks home yesterday so they could reread and edit their rough drafts. We will peer conference this assignment tomorrow so they can move on to the final draft. Final draft is in pen, in cursive and on penmanship paper. The final draft may be typed. This assignment is due Friday March 16th.

Reminder that we are doing the Religion ACRE test tomorow (Wednesday). Students were reminded Monday to bring home their Religion folder with the notes and study guide for this test.

Also, as a culminating activity to our visit to the Maple Sugar House at Northwest Park, we will be having a pancake tasting on Friday, March 16 to sample some of Northwest Park's maple syrup. In order for your child to participate they need to return the permission slip ASAP. Thank you for your cooperation.

Also since Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day both fall on Wednesday, February 14, we are going to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, February 13 so that on Wednesday we can focus on the beginning of lent. The students are allowed to bring in Valentines for their classmates to pass out on TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13. There are a couple of rules for the cards. Students must have enough cards for all the students in their class. There are 14 students in the fifth grade.
