Dear parents,

It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of the first trimester.  As we head to Thanksgiving break, one of the things we are most thankful for is the opportunity to teach such an amazing group of young people.  They have already accomplished so much this year and we are excited for the coming trimesters.

Dear parents,

This has been such a fun week in fifth grade!  We really appreciate all of the parent support with supplies and volunteer time for our cake project this morning.  The kids had a blast and the cakes look amazing!  We are so incredibly lucky to have such a supportive parent community!

This afternoon we visited the University of Washington planetarium and enjoyed learning more about our solar system, galaxy, and universe.

Social Studies Geography Quiz

Hello all, 

 I don’t normally post quizes but because it is short notice, I wanted to give you all a heads up. 

I will be giving a short 7 question quiz on Friday, September 21. They will need to label various geographic features in the United States. They worked on this today and have a completed map coming home to study from.
