From Mrs. Halweg:
Math- In math this week your student was assessed over their knowledge and understanding of graphing and reading points on a coordinate plane.
If you’d like a resource to help your student in retaining and practicing their math knowledge over the summer, check out The Summer Math Challenge: https://www.quantiles.com/content/summer-math-challenge/summer-learning/ .
From Mr. Kelley:
Reading and Language: Students created a memory book, reflection on their fifth grade year. Be sure to take a look and help them preserve this for them to look back on in the years to come.
Social Studies: We ended the year by finishing our 3-week civil war unit. Students learned learned about the people, places, and events of the civil war.

From Mr. Peterson:
Science: We are finished our work on human impacts on the environment. Many thanks to Mr. Kelley for collaborating on this project!
Reading and Writing: We finished 1) a presentation on the refugees around the world; 2) a cool combo of poetry and informational text ala Joyce Sidman; and 3) descriptive writing about a made-up word using the book, Lost in Translation as a mentor.
