    Our mission for Mrs. Gracey’s fifth grade class is to be safe, kind, and respectful upstanders by trying our best, following the rules, welcoming everyone, and having fun!!!

    Today it was announced that Space Camp is a go!!!  We have determined that we have enough funds for all students to attend!  Thanks to everyone for returning your paperwork!

    Conferences continue on Tuesday (11-12).  These conferences are student-led, so your child must be with you.  If you come without your child, we will need to reschedule.  If you are unable to make it at your conference time, please let me know right away so that we can reschedule.  All conferences are back-to-back.  Please be on time and respect the time of others.  The outside doors will be locked.  Please come to the door closest to my classroom (I will show the class) and wait for me to come open the door to let you in.  If I do not show up within 2 minutes of your scheduled time, please come knock on my window (mine is the yellow cubby).  Thanks for your patience as I navigate this new system! 

    Here is a message from the front office:

    Attention STEM lovers!
     
    King Science Olympiad is gearing up for another great season and we are in need of parent volunteers to be event coaches. No science experience is necessary--just a love of learning and a desire to help our kids! Please use this link to indicate your interest in coaching: https://forms.gle/wqwjdWK47LgMwrDA8Responses are requested before Monday, November 25.
     
    Event coaches lead a team of students as they prepare to compete at the county-wide Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad (WESO) competition on Saturday, May 9. Practices start in late January or February and meet weekly through the competition day. 
     
    King Science Olympiad is for students in grades 2-5. The student sign-up will open at a later date this fall. Event coaches' children who participate actively throughout the season will be offered a spot on the competition team. If you cannot be an event coach but wish to be a key science olympiad volunteer in another way, please fill out the interest form and explain how you could help lead a portion of the program in another way. Feel free to email us at kingscienceolympiad@gmail.com with any questions.
     
    Thank you for your support of our amazing students!

    We had another fantastic week!!!  We continued to get to know each other, build our community, and set up the classroom!  

     

    Thursday (9-17) at 6:15 is Curriculum Night!  I really hope to see everyone!!!  Please remember that this night is about curriculum.  Please refrain from asking questions specific to your child or that don't relate to the presentation.  I will not be prepared to discuss your child's progress or behavior in class as I am still getting to know and assess them.  If you have a pressing concern, please email me and either explain the concern, or request a meeting.  I will respond in a timely manner! 

     

    On Wednesday (9-18) at 9:00AM, we begin NWEA testing.  We will take the Reading test.  Please be sure that your child gets a good night's sleep, eats an healthy breakfast, and is on time for school that day so that they can do their best thinking.
