I sent home the following letter today…
Dear Students and Parents,
5th grade will be doing a Monster Match Project in October that requires some extra supplies. We are in need of some shoe boxes, regular sized popsicle sticks, paper plates, paper/styrofoam cups, pipe cleaners, paper lunch sacks. As supplies is dropped off I will post on the 5th grade blog and the 5th grade channel on schoolway to let you know what we are still in need of. Thank you for your help in making this fun project possible. Students may drop off any supplies in Miss Stoneman’s room before school or when they come to class. Thank you for your help.
We will begin the project next Friday, Oct. 6th. Please send what you can before then.
Dear 5th Grade Parents,
I have started scholastic book orders for this school year. I love giving students and parents another way to get books. Almost all books are cheaper from scholastic than if bought in stores or online. I love finding ways to save money and this is a great one for books. Another big reason why I love scholastic is that for every order our class earns points that I use to purchase books for my classroom library. Last year I was able to get over 200 books from scholastic for my classroom library.
My class library is available for all 5th grade students. They are allowed check out one book at a time. They are responsible for taking care of the book that they borrow. I love having another place for students to get to check out books but that requires us to all take care of those books.
At the beginning of each month I will pass out scholastic book order forms to students that would like one. All orders are due the last SCHOOL DAY of the month. If an order is turned in late it will be sent with the next months order. I submit orders after school on the last school day of the month. Orders take about a week to come in. September orders are due by the end of school on Friday, September 29th.
How to order…Students can turn in the paper order form from with cash or check. Checks should be made out to “Scholastic Book Club.” Parents can place orders online at https://clubs.scholastic.com/ using our class code QKCML and you can pay with a credit or debit card. Online orders will be submitted at the end of the month with all other orders. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
There will be a Social Studies quiz over 4 vocabulary words this Friday. Below is the link where your child can study the words:
