Grade 5

Week of September 28th – October 1st

Hi Grade 5 Families!

We’re starting to get into the routine of school again and  have enjoyed our outdoor play; even in the rain! This week, I look forward to meeting you at Meet The Teacher night on Tuesday! Please be sure to read information below, regarding that night!

Our featured image this week is our grasshopper friend, whom we fondly named Fred Jerry. He was our class pet for about a day; until we realized he was meant for nature and not meant to be a pet (we’re also not sure if Fred Jerry is a male or female 😅). The children were so excited at the prospect of having a class pet, they researched what grasshoppers eat and everything! Perhaps we’ll have an open discussion about class pets, this week 😄!
