Birthdays are celebrated in numerous ways often with gifts, cards, and possibly a party. Please keep the following in mind when considering how to distribute birthday invites.

Invitation Reminder:  We never want to have a child feel left out or have their feelings hurt by not receiving an invitation to a party.  Even as adults, we know the emotional hurt from being excluded. 

This is why we highly discourage the passing out of invitations at school. The only exception is if you are inviting the whole class and the invitations are distributed by your child’s teacher.   Invitations are never to be distributed by a student or parent.

Reading is the most important skill because it is the basis for learning throughout the school day.

Reading takes practice.

Make reading a part of your family's daily routine.

*Read every night with your child or along side your child.
*Ask your child to occasionally read aloud and listen to how they're able to read with fluency-expression, accuracy, rate, phrasing, and punctuation.
*We will be working on reading more fluently in the classroom with weekly goals. What will be your child's goal this week?
"The habits we form from childhood make no small difference, but rather they make all the difference." -Aristotle

*Our fifth grade homework expectation of students is to read a minimum of 80 minutes per week. The students are working on weekly reading goals. Can you exceed the expectations?

Math: We are in module 6 focusing on coordinate graphing.

Science: We just began our unit on the environment, habitats, biomes, and water cycle.
