Grade 5 Newsletter – Week of 4/16-4/20

I sent home a hard copy of the pizza form to the students. Start selling those pizzas. I would like each student to sell 10 pizzas. Students do not have to come to pizza night. We do mostly take out and many uncooked pizzas. I could use a few parents that want to help out making and cleaning on the actual day. I usually have a crew of previous parents who help out on this night.

Create-An-Alien project- Due next Friday. Most students have the picture done and now, have to complete the writing phase. I need to see a rough draft of the written work.

Myth Busters Astronomy Newscast- Students should be prepared to present their newscasts by Thursday. I hope to have a parent film them. Then, I will post them for viewing.

Spanish Country Project- Senor Brown assigned a South or Central American country to each 5th grader. They are to put the required material (he gave them a handout) on a poster board. They will have next Tuesday in Spanish class to work on it. Then, it is due the following class period where they will give a presentation. Students should save the poster board because the will use this information to complete their World’s Fair project.
