Well folks, we are in the final stages, the home stretch, if you will, of this school year. It has flown by. We have so many great memories of this year and friendships that were fostered and created. I truly enjoyed teaching each one of your children. It is a fact that the fourth and final marking period of your child's fifth grade career has begun, but we must not slow down. There is much to be done. The PARCC is upon us. Our class will be taking the test beginning May 7th and ending on May 14th. Your children have been practicing and training for this task and believe me they are up for the challenge. Please make sure they get a good nights sleep, eat breakfast and above all don't stress. 
     In the fourth marking period we will be studying Westward Expansion. The students will research and ultimately create a book on the topic of their choice. 
As the weather warms up, I would like to ask that you make sure your child continues to read each night. Consistency is key to building fluency and comprehension. Students should be reading independently each night for at least 15 minutes and completing a reading log.
Thank you for your continued support. Working together, you and I can assist your child in becoming the best learner they can be.
Let's finish the year STRONG!
      Sincerely, Mrs.Stoddard
