Welcome to 5th Grade! It is my distinct pleasure to welcome the Class of 2017 to Kerrydale Elementary as they usher in the final year of their elementary career!
‘Tis the season for colds and flu. Just as a reminder to all students, make sure to dress appropriately for the weather. The temperature has been up and down which is the perfect potion for the spreading of various viruses. Also, remember to please use proper hygiene rules when coughing and sneezing. Make sure to sneeze into your arm and not into your hand. And ALWAYS wash your hands after you sneeze and wipe or blow your nose. Hand sanitizer is a great alternative, but soap and water is ALWAYS BEST!
Our Winter Holiday Break will begin on Thursday, 12/22/16, and school will resume on Tuesday 1/3.
PS: Even though it is your Winter Break, I still want you to KEEP READING! I want you to be raring to go when we get started in the New Year, so remember, a little bit of reading goes a LONG WAY!
We will start our New Year studying the following:
Reading - Text Structures
Math - Probability
Science - Geology: Earth Layers and Movement
