MAP Testing Next Week

Fifth Graders,

MAP testing will be next week.  All fifth graders will take the reading and math tests.  Below is our schedule:

Patton/Papadimitriou MATH classes:  Tuesday, April 22 at 9:15am
Mekky/Williams MATH classes:  Thursday, April 24 at 9:15am

Our whole class Wednesday, April 23 at 1:30pm

These tests are VERY important, as they will help determine placement for math and reading next year and are also a good measure of growth between spring of last year and spring of this year.  Please be sure to eat a good breakfast each day and get a lot of sleep next week.  We want to make sure we're at our best to take these tests.

Please email me if you have any questions (

Ms. Patton

February STARs tomorrow!

Fifth graders,

Tomorrow is the February STARs lunch.  I know it seems like February was a long time ago, but conflicts kept arising.  Plan to eat lunch in the classroom tomorrow (you will still have recess).

Here are our February STARs participants:  Alana, Nate, Dean, Colin, Andy, Francesca, Michael, Paige, Ella L, Ella M, Madison, Olivia M, Mitch, Lauren, Olivia S

There won't be a STARs lunch for March because it was a short month of homework due to ISATs and spring break.  The April STARs lunch will be at the beginning of May.

Have a great night!

Website for Science

Fifth graders,

Click the website below to get to the google doc to use for science.  If you'd rather create your own, that is fine too.

If you choose to use this template, be sure to make a copy of it and rename it Energy - your name.

See me if you have any questions!
