Dear Families of TCS 5th Graders,
Welcome back! I hope you had a relaxing mini break. I spent time with my family in southern New Mexico and enjoyed the sunshine!
We have a lot going on in 5th grade for the next four weeks. Our trout eggs hatched over the weekend and the students are really excited. We will be regularly testing the water and tracking their changes. This also launches a new unit, which we will start next week; ecosystems. There will be a project due the week before winter break. This is one of my favorite projects of the year.
This week we will finish up our discussion of culture and the way different cultures can impact each other. The students will have an essay and visual presentation assigned tomorrow which will be due next Monday, the 4th.
We will be very busy in Math over the next four weeks as well. There will be two more math tests before the end of the quarter. I will be continuing to send home review work for homework each Monday that will be due on Friday.
We are continuing to collect canned goods for Taos feeds Taos. Please keep sending in your donations!
Tomorrow all ski club forms are due, and there will be no exceptions for late forms. Please be sure that your child’s forms are returned tomorrow if they want to participate in the program.
