5th Grade – Borokini

May/June Newsletter

What we have been working on:
In class, we have been hard at work at area, perimeter, and capacity of shapes in Math. In Science, we have been working through energy and chemicals in the periodic table of elements. In Language Arts and Reading, we have been busy in our reading groups and working hard at spelling! In Social Studies, we have been studying many concepts that relate to the Civil War and slavery. You can expect more objectives for the next six weeks, and then we will be reviewing concepts at the end of the school year.

Testing:
Thank you for keeping your children well-rested and prepared as they have been testing heavily over the past month or so. I know that it has been stressful for them, but the end has come! Let’s keep a positive attitude as the scores come in!

Field Trips:
Be on the lookout for sign-up sheets over the next few weeks for field trips during the next few months. We hope to go to Sky Zone in Kalamazoo during mid-May, and possibly another venue in early June. Please let us know if you can drive and RSVP as soon as possible!

Thanks for all of your support!
Ms. B. and Ms. Willis
