Mrs. DeLurgio spoke to both 5th grade classes last week, so the students should have information for you. The information sheet is available in my resources section.
2. Math Summer Solutions: All incoming 6th graders will be responsible for completing a Math Summer Solutions workbook over the summer. The workbook must be completed in it’s entirety and turned in during the first week of school (official due date TBD). All 5th graders should order the “Intermediate A: Mathematics” level. This assignment will be taken for a grade in math. These workbooks can be ordered now! Shipping is free until May 12th. Please see the ordering information below:

This week, we will be working on the Virtues and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. These are especially important for the 5th graders to work on as they approach 6th grade and their Confirmation. We will be having a guest speaker on Wednesday (Mrs. Wolf’s mom!!) who will be talking to the students about Catholic Social Teachings.
This week, we will continue studying for the End of Year Test. We will also be studying graphing and Mean, Median, Mode and Range. I will be assigning homework that is directly from the End of Year Review packet every night this week.
This week we are moving on to “Moving West” where we will be discussing the Alamo, the Oregon Trail, and the California Gold Rush! The Chapter 8 Vocabulary test will be tomorrow, Tuesday, May 21st. There is a Quizlet available. The link is in the resources area of my Teacher’s Page. Today, we were able to spend a few minutes playing the classic game of Oregon Trail. Here is the link if you would like to play! https://classicreload.com/oregon-trail.html
