Welcome to Fifth Grade!

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional School will be closed on Monday, November 12th, in observance of Veteran's Day. 

Band Lessons

Experienced Band - 8:00 a.m. - 8:45 a.m.

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!

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Regional will be hosting a coat drive.  Please consider donating any gently used coats for those that do not have one to wear this winter. All donations are due by Friday, November 16th. Thank you!

The students in fifth grade will also be collecting donations for the Regina House.  The Regina House is affiliated with Cure of Ars Church and assists young mothers and their babies.  A donation list was sent out by our class mother, Mrs. Garcia.  We will be collecting any and all baby items (diapers, wipes, pacifiers, etc.) and sending them to the House.  Please consider donating to this great cause.  Thank you!

On Tuesday, November 13th, the fifth graders will be taking a trip to Nassau BOCES in Old Brookville, to participate in Project Adventure.  Please make sure that your child has a bagged lunch and that they are wearing their gym uniform.  If you have any questions, please let me know. 

In Religion, we will be learning about the role of Angels in our world.  We will attend Mass, as a class, on Thursday, January 17th.  Please feel free to join us.  In Health, we will begin to learn about making responsible decisions.  The students will be divided into groups to create skits which will display the proper steps they should take when faced with a difficult decision. 

Measurement will be our next area of focus in Math.  The students will learn how to measure to the nearest millimeter, centimeter, and meter.  In addition, they will learn how to convert metric measurements. 

We will continue our learning journey in Science by transitioning from Properties of Matter to Changes in Matter (Topic 2).  The students will learn about physical and chemical changes, mixtures and solutions, and more about the three states of matter. They will conduct an experiment in which they will create goop, in order to determine the differences between solids and liquids.  Stop by our Photo Gallery to see the pictures from this experiment. It was a bit messy, but a lot of fun! They will also be growing salt crystals to learn about the differences between solutions and mixtures.  Please make sure that your child brings in a glass jar with a lid by Friday, November 16th.  Thank you!

Thank you for all of your support!
