WOW!!! We have almost finished a half of our school year!! I am so glad that I have got to spend this time with each of your children! This week is going to fly by but we have some BIG things that you need to be aware of.

Monday- Homework will be sent home- it covers improper fraction/mixed numbers

Tuesday- **MATH BENCHMARK**– get sleep on Monday night and eat a GOOD breakfast.

Wednesday- Reading benchmark- get sleep on Tuesday night and eat a GOOD breakfast.

Thursday- Limo ride for students that sold 15 or more items for the fundraiser. 5^{th} grade music program at 6:30

Friday- Bouncy house for students that sold enough items for the fundraiser.

**Be looking for permission slips for the limo and bouncy house. IF NOT TURNED IN, no reward!**

**BACK TO THE BENCHMARKS**– this will assess what your student has learned so far. It is very important and will help guide my teaching and their learning after Christmas break.
