Grade 5A



Happy New Year!

As our break comes to a close I hope everyone comes back eager and ready to learn. The 5th grade will now start to go into Informational writing. They will be given their last assessment for Narrative writing on Wednesday and it will be due in 2 weeks.

The 6th graders will continue with the iLit program. We are getting into our new story and the students seem to be excited about it. They have taken on the iLit program with great enthusiasm. They really enjoy the 10 minutes of independent reading the program offers with books that caters to their interests.

Intense work is coming up for both classes as we start to prepare even more for the state tests. Both classes will start to receive homework from last years state test. They will be graded and reviewed in class as to prepare them as much as possible.

Here’s to a year filled with many adventures and educational growth.

Dear Parents,


This year the 5th grade class will be doing a class book exchange. Each student will bring in a book wrapped in their favorite Christmas wrapping {with a gift tag} to exchange with another student. Receiving a new book is always exciting for any reader but receiving one from a peer makes it special. Where can I find a book? Here are some ideas:

  • Bring a gently used book from home
  • Find a new book from Scholastic
  • Go to your local bookstore or department store
  • Thrift stores


Please have your child bring their book in by Friday December 16th. If you are unable to bring in a book for the exchange, please let me know.


Thank you,

Ms. Alulema & Ms. Battaglini
