    Wednesday we go to the Music Center for a fabulous field trip.  All students attending (from ALL schools) will perform a dance in the outdoor pavilion of the Music Center.  I have linked to the instructional video on Google Classroom:  Room 28 for students who wish to practice at home.  

    This Friday we take the end of module assessment for Math.  The practice test will come home by Thursday.  Report cards came home on Friday.  Please sign and return the yellow copy.

    This Wednesday we walk to Hale Middle School.  Hale does a fabulous job of highlighting many of the amazing programs they offer their students, touring the 5th graders around the school, and getting them acquainted with middle school life.  We will be leaving immediately in the morning.  Students may bring small backpacks to carry their own water, and are welcome to bring a snack, but Hale typically provides a snack for us.  We will be back by lunchtime.  This is the perfect day to wear Welby wear and 5th Grade apparel!

    Next week we have minimum days Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday to accommodate for Parent/Teacher conferences.  A pink sheet went home last week.  If you are interested in conferencing with me, please select times that you are available.  You can also opt out of conferences if you do not feel that it is necessary at this time.


    March 1, we are taking a field trip to the Music Center.  Many students returned trip slips, some still have not.  Please click flyer below:

    Valentine's Day is on Tuesday.  For students who wish to bring in Valentine's for the class: there are 30 children:  14 girls and 16 boys.  We will be passing them out in the afternoon. 


    Parent Surveys went home last week.  It is extremely important that we have 100% participation.  Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey and return it with your child by Wednesday, February 8.  Thank you in advance.


    Coming up are some 5th grade milestones:  Thursday, February 16 is 5th Grade Panoramas and Graduation Gown Photos.  In order to ensure that you get a Panorama, you will want to preorder.  The Graduation Gown photo, on the other hand, does not need to be preordered.  You can wait until you see it to order it.  

    We are taking the walking field trip to Hale on February 22.  Let me know if you would like to join us.  

    Thank you for getting in your Pali payments!  Just one more payment due date:  Woohoo!

    Because we won't have time to do Zearn in class prior to our math lesson tomorrow, the kids and I talked about getting lesson 6 done at home at some point before returning to school on Tuesday.  Sorry about the "weekend homework" assignment this week.  It makes a huge difference to do the lessons prior to the lessons, but if a student is unable to do it before Tuesday, he/she can make it up Tuesday night. 

    Many people are asking about Pali payments. Our next payment is due any time before January 30. You can either pay for the next portion:  $175, or get the rest of the payment out of the way:  $350.  Either way, please send it in by January 30. Our final payment date will be announced soon.

    And we're back!
    Happy New Year to all!  
    I hope everyone had a wonderful 3 weeks off.  
    We have already gotten right back into the swing of things, tying up some loose ends from before vacation, and heading into new units as well.  Even though it seems like a long time until summer, the reality is that this part of the school year flies by. Before we know it, June will be here!  

    Just a reminder that our next Pali payment is due January 30.  Please bring it in anytime before that. Thank you so much.
