Welcome to Fifth Grade!


The Fifth graders will be taking a field trip to Jones Beach to participate in a Marine Biology project on Tuesday, May 28th.  We will be eating lunch at the beach, so please make sure that your child has his/her lunch packed in a Ziploc or brown paper bag.  Please note that glass bottles are not permitted. They may wear their gym uniforms for this trip.  We will be out in the sun for a large majority of the day, so please apply sunscreen prior to coming to school that day. Please contact us if you have any further questions regarding the trip.  

Field Day will take place on Friday, May 31st at Hofstra University.  The permission slip for this event has been sent home with each student.  Please return these slips, with payment, by Tuesday, May 28th.  Our class is part of the white team. Students must wear a white shirt with their GYM Shorts/Pants.  They are not permitted to wear any other type of shorts or pants. Please have your child bring their lunch in a paper bag and/or ziploc bag, as we will be eating at Hofstra University.  In addition, they may bring a water bottle to use during the day.  Please note that glass bottles are not permitted.  If you have any questions, please ask. Thank you!

We will be having a working snack in our classroom each day.  Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack and water to drink.  Thank you!

If your child is absent for school for any reason, please contact the nurse's office to report their absence.  In addition, when they return to school, please send in a note stating the reason behind their absence.  Thank you!

In Religion, the students will learn about Mary, Joseph, Elizabeth, and Zechariah.  We will discuss the Annunciation and Mary's visitation to her cousin, Elizabeth.  Our next school Liturgy will take place on Wednesday, May 29th. This Liturgy will be our May Crowning Mass.  ​We will attend our last Mass, as a class, on Monday, June 17th.  Please feel free to join us. 

In Health, we will begin to learn about Body Systems.  We will learn about how each system functions and its role on our bodies. In addition, we will discuss cells, tissues, and organs. 

Geometry (Chapter 14) will be our next area of focus in Math.  The students will learn how to classify triangles and quadrilaterals, how to measure volume, and how to find the volume of composite figures. 

We will continue our learning journey in Science by focusing on Energy and Food (Topic 8).  The students will learn about photosynthesis and about how energy is transferred from one organism to the next. 

Thank you for all of your support!
