    Hello, with school closed this week I still want students to keep their brain going with academic activities.  Students can access content this week in our Google Classroom (class code: xysnxb3).  There is a class chat page as well as comments that students can participate in. The remote learning assignment has a daily list of activities for Monday through Friday.  The remote learning page can also be found here:

  • Mid-February

    Posted by Joseph Kerney on 2/16/2020

    On February 28, your student will present their SS/ELA presentation that they have been working on.  Times for each student’s presentation will be sent home (morning time). Students need to dress like someone would in the 1600-1800 era on this day. You are welcome to join the class that your student is presenting in and watch.  Parents are also welcome to watch the dance from 2:15-2:45 on February 28th in the gym.  This is a big day for 5th grade and we are excited and working hard to bring everything together.

    Hello Families,

                We are off with a nice start to the new year.  The kiddos came back from break and have surprised me with their skills and behavior.  We are submersed in a text rich environment learning about Superheroes and the Age of Exploration. Soon we will be learning about colonial life in Social Studies and we will end that unit with Colonial Day at Russell.  In groups, students will create a presentation about a colonial topic that will be presented at the end of February.  Groups dress up in theme coordinating with their presentation.  Presentations will be given to other classes on Colonial Day.  In the next few weeks more information will be given about Colonial Days.

                The class has wrapped up multiplying, adding, subtracting, and dividing fractions and we are efficient solving 5th grade fraction problems.  In the next couple of weeks we will learn how to multiply decimals.

                For the next 16 weeks our class has a guest teacher candidate from the University, Ms. Donahue.  Ms. Donahue will assist with classroom tasks and is an asset to our learning environment.  The next few months will be fun.  We also host the Wax Museum closer to the end of the year and after we get through Colonial Days I will update you with more information about the museum.  Next week we have Monday off! 

                I appreciate your support at home and as always if you have any questions please contact me.
