Welcome to Fifth Grade!
I hope that everyone stocked up on their water, bread, milk and eggs….I will be stopping by for French Toast this weekend…. Seriously, I hope that everyone is prepared for what is to come in the next few days. Many of us have family in Florida and we all wish them to be safe through this horrible event. I have been answering several questions from your kids about the hurricane and I am trying to answer them as honestly as possible without causing alarm. Hopefully, we are out of the path but please remain informed and updated on any changes....
We concluded a successful full week of school. The students worked really hard on all their beginning of the year assessments and I am eager to get them started on all that we will be working on this year. To break up the focus needed for testing, I had the students complete several hands-on task. Ask them if you haven’t heard about the Ping Pong Ramp building project. The kids were super excited and successful in the build. I look forward to challenging them throughout the year. I hope that everyone has a safe and fun Labor Day weekend. Check...
Welcome Back! It was great to see everyone who attended last night’s orientation. I look forward to working with everyone this year! Here are a few snapshots from today. Students were asked to create whatever they wanted using recycled materials. I was blown away by their imaginations.

I hope that everyone had a great Pesach break. It was much needed by the students and staff. Today we had a blast with exception of a minor hiccup this morning, at the Concord Mills Speedpark. I hope that everyone has been made aware that the camping trip dates have changed. We will be leaving on Monday May 15th and returning on Wednesday May 17th. Check out our photos below.
Yesterday we had a wonderful time at Pesach Day with stories, food, songs and games. The kids got a chance to learn about Charoset from many different regions. Not only did they get the opportunity to taste a different variety they also got a chance to help make it. YUM!!! Next week we will be conducting the WRAP test. This is our annual writing test. We will be testing on Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:15-9:15. Students will not be admitted to class during the testing times. I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend.
