The week of April 30th, the fifth grade will be starting the ITBS testing. We will be testing all week and part of the next week. Please remember that good nutrition and rest is needed for the students to perform their very best. This is the week after camp so make sure your child gets lots of sleep that weekend! Thanks!

Tomorrow (4/20) the fifth graders will be holding a debate between three famous Loyalists and three famous Patriots. Students have used class time this week preparing for this debate.
This activity was an excellent review for the test on Chapter 11, next Monday 4/23. Please remember to review the “History Alive” site for the test. vocabulary as well as notebook pages for this chapter should also be studied.
