Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to week 12 of 37. Students will work diligently to finish up their first trimester in 5th grade with excellence. They will have a couple of weeks to turn in missing/late work before Christmas break and report cards.

Service Project: Greeting cards (<link) for Meals on Wheels.  Additionally, we also look forward to working with NWCO in the coming trimester.  We will need much parent help (drivers/chaperones).  Be looking for dates/times, and the volunteer email to be sent in the coming weeks.
