Fifth Grade – Robinson

December Newsletter

What we’re learning in 5th Grade:
Reading:
Making predictions based on facts and details in selected readings. We are also reading to understand information in a text.

Writing: We are brainstorming, writing rough drafts, and peer editing. Expectation is to write continuously every day in their journals.

Math: Comparing, adding, and subtracting fractions. We continue with our times test each day to help your student master multiplication facts through 12X12.

Social Studies: We are learning about events that shaped early American history.

Please work on multiplication facts at home.

Homework: Spelling List Monday. Weekly work starts Monday and there are activities for each day of the week.

Pajama Party – Evergreen Academy is having our Annual Pajama Party on December 1st from 6pm to 8pm.  Students will enjoy a movie, enjoy crafts, and play games.  Students will need to be picked up by 8pm or before.  The cost is $5 per child.  Parents, we hope you have a fun night out.  A note has been sent home already; please let us know if you need another.

Mitten Tree – Evergreen Academy is having a Mitten Tree this year during the month of December.  Please send in NEW mittens, gloves, scarves, and hats.  There is a pretty good selection at dollar stores.  Items will be collected until Dec. 15th and given to the Kalamazoo YWCA.  Students who bring in an item will have the opportunity to decorate our school Christmas tree and get a special treat.

Snow Day Policy – If we have to close the school due to inclement weather we will report this to the local news channels 3 and 8.  We will also post it to our Facebook page.  Please check one of the above before coming to school during the winter months.  Do not rely on calling the school because there will be no one here to take the phone call.

my family and I would like to wish your families a safe and happy Holiday Season!

Mr. Robinson
