5th grade will be having their Christmas Parties on Friday from 10 am to 11 am in their homeroom class.
If you would like to take your student home after their party please let the office know when you get here. They will give you a sticker to put on your child to show that they have been checked out in the office! This sticker will allow you to leave with your child without having to go back to the office to check them out after the party.
Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for any questions regarding their Christmas party.
Students will be taking a vocabulary quiz tomorrow and a unit test Thursday. Study guides for the unit test will go home tomorrow (Tuesday). Below are the vocabulary words for the quiz:
taxation- process of collecting money from citizens in order to fund government expenses
Patriot-American colonists who supported independence from Great Britain

boycott-to refuse to buy goods
alliance-relationship of being joined together for the same cause

MISS STONEMAN’s CLASS PARTY (this is only for Miss Stoneman’s homeroom)
- Date: Friday, December 15th
- Time: 10:00-11:00 am

This year at the fifth grade Christmas party students will be opening Christmas stockings. Students will need to bring 1 item for each student in their homeroom class to put in the stockings. There are 24 students in my class. Examples of items include: candy, card, small toy, pencil, eraser, etc. The item can also just be a homemade note and does not have to cost any money.
I am going to have a sign up for snacks and drinks. You can email me or send a note to let me know if you would like to bring anything for the party. There is a list below. Please remember that all food and drink items must be store bought and cannot be made at home.
- 48 Plain Sugar Cookies (to decorate during party)-covered
- Various Colors of Icing
- (or multiple white icing and food coloring)
- Variety of Sprinkles
- Any other edible options to decorate cookies with
- Fruit Dip
- Chips- covered
- Chip Dip- covered
- Veggie Tray- covered
- Ranch- covered
- Hot Chocolate- covered
I will provide cups, plates, and napkins!
If you would like to help out with a snack please email or send me a note to let me know what you plan to bring and how much/many. As I get plenty of an item I will remove it from this list.
I will not be at school on Thursday so November Scholastic book orders will need to be turned in by the end of school tomorrow, Wednesday, November 29th!
