Welcome 5th grade students and parents!
We are so excited to meet our young students on Tuesday, September 3rd. As we begin our adventure together this year, we will learn so much about one another. To initiate our introduction, we’ve created the following assignment as described below:
Students, if you were a piece of fruit, what would you be?
How does the fruit represent, you? your personality? your appearance? your preferences? etc… When choosing your fruit, you may want to consider some of the following:
-Color (inside and outside)
-Texture (inside and outside)
-Sound (when you bite into it)
There is no need to write anything! Simply make a thoughtful selection and bring one piece of edible fruit to school on Tuesday, September 4th and be ready to share. We’re excited to meet our little bananas and apricots!
Speaking of food, we’d also like to remind the parents that when and if you bring food items to school to share/celebrate a birthday or other occasions, please be mindful that we potentially have students with nut and/or egg allergies in the 5th grade.
We ask that such items are in original packaging with ingredients listed, so we can keep our friends safe and included. This small gesture reinforces the important life skill of thinking about another’s needs and responding with a generous heart.
With that in mind, we will all be safe and ready to get to know one another on our first day of 5th grade!
