Welcome to 5-2

Week of 2/23 to 2/27
What's happening in 5th grade?

Please send in any Box Tops that you have tomorrow.. the PTO is coming around to collect them!

Many students have been sharing at our class meetings on Tuesday and Fridays but some have not signed up yet! Many kids have shared about trips, etc. but the share could be anything- a hobby, special pet (photos!), passion like dance or a sport, momento or special object! Please sign up on the class calendar for a 10 minute or so share-We are really enjoying learning more about the students in our 5-2 community. 



Need a little inspiration to get 2015 off to the right start? Check out this video my Advisory group watched today! Sure to get you smiling!



The cold weather is here- Students are outside daily in the morning and during recess- Please dress for the weather! Also, an extra sweatshirt to keep in your locker is a great idea- Temperatures fluctuate in the Lawn School building.
