Welcome to Mrs. Lytwyn’s 5th Grade Class
Be the Best That You Can Be, Every day!!!!

This is really our last Journal Writing Week, which I am sure some will be happy about. I have loved reading the Journals and I hope that you will keep them as a memory of your time spent in fifth grade. All Journals must be handed in by Friday with the last 6 Journal entries.
Thank you to those who have volunteered to make something for Colonial Days. If you are making a food for Colonial Days, you can send it in with your child on Monday morning. Children can come to school dressed in Colonial attire or what they wore for their Wax Museum Presentations. Parents that have a station need to be in the Conference Center by 8:00 to become familiar with the set-up. Students will be coming over around 8:30. Mrs. Spirk will be there to let you know where you will be working. It is a whirlwind of a day–be prepared–get a good night’s sleep. I will have a schedule set up to time movement and the kids will know where they are expected to start and how the stations move. Thank you to all those who graciously volunteered their time. Without you, it wouldn’t happen. The kids will love it!
In Social Studies the students are responsible for creating an ABC Constitutional Poster. We set up the poster in class. On the poster should be a title in the upper left hand corner and their name in the box in the bottom right corner. Students must find something about the Constitution Period for each letter of the alphabet. The poster will be judged on neatness, information presented, grammar, and overall presentation. It should be in color with a few little pictures. Students did see examples and should know what is expected of them.
Many of you may know we are studying “The Chapter” on Sexuality in Religion-Chapter 22. It is the number one chapter looked forward to in fifth grade. This is a great time for you to talk to your children about the topic. I think many of my students may have questions that you are better equipped to answer. They may be more comfortable talking to a parent than asking a question in the classroom in front of their friends.
As many of you may know we have Final Exams in Fifth Grade. Now everyone can breathe–it is counted as one test only. Guidelines have been sent home. The final schedule is as follows:
Friday, May 25-Spelling
Wednesday, May 30th-Religion
Thursday, May 31st- Math Computation and Science
Friday, June 1st- Math Word Problems and Social Studies
Tuesday, June 4th-English
Reading will be given throughout the week
If there is anyone is interested in having their child tutored this summer, Ms. Berge, the sixth grade teacher does tutor and you can contact her through the school. She is setting up her summer schedule.
