Welcome Back!

Welcome back and welcome spring!!! 

I would also like to welcome our new student Josh from Connecticut. We look forward to getting to know you better. By the looks of your first day, you fit right in and have already made some new friends. 

This week we will be working on creating podcasts to share our opinions about some current events. Stay tuned for our Griffin Radio Podcasts.

We are continuing to work on Fractions, Rates and Ratios. Please take a few minutes to read the page above for detailed information and learning goals for this unit. We will wrap up with a unit test next week. 
Students are seeing the advantages of becoming fluent with their math facts as we work through our math problems in class. You are encouraged to work at achieving your green circle at least 5 times a week. 

Book Sale Results.
Thank you to so many of you for donating books for our Used Books Sale. The students worked very hard creating bookmarks, organizing and collecting books, promoting our sale and running the event. They raised close to $1400 for the Therapeutic Clown Program at CHEO! We are so thrilled and proud of our Grade 5 students.

Tower Garden Update
We cleaned out the towers before the March Break. It was time to cut down the weeds and clean out the tower. The Garden Club have set the seeds for peppers, tomatoes, egg plant and a few other vegetables. Stay tuned for pictures. 

Have a great week everyone.
Mrs. Hanna
