Science Made Fun

Science Made Fun will be visiting each classroom, every day for a 75 minute program that will help reinforce the students’ science concepts. Students will participate in the following labs:

Monday – Newton’s Lab

Tuesday – Eco Explores

Wednesday – Energy Matters

Thursday – Storm Chasers

Friday – Body Works

The cost of all five labs is $40.00.  We recognize that it is a large amount of money therefore we have set up the following payment due dates.

April 17th – $10.00 due

April 24th – $10.00 due

May 1st – $10.00 due

May 8th – $10.00 due

Since we have to pay the Scientists prior to their arrival and materials need to be purchased for each student participating we cannot accept any money after May 8th.

Join the 5th Grade teachers for an evening of EOG information!

Are you concerned with the End of Grade tests that your child will be taking in the next few months?

Do you have questions about the EOG’s ?

Would you like to know what types of questions and concepts your child will be asked to answer?

Would you like handouts to help you help your student at home?

Would you like to know what you could do to ease your child’s anxiety as the test quickly approaches?

In order to address any issues, we ask that only parents or guardians come.

Thank you for supporting this year’s Boosterthon Fun Run!  We are halfway through the program and the Boosterthon Fun Run event is quickly approaching. So far as a team, we are up to $ 0 per lap. Our goal is $ 5 per lap. Ms. Cronin’s class is the fifth grade leader with $11 per lap.

The students are having a blast learning about COMMUNITY through the Rock’n Town Live theme! Check out the cool character videos at or on the FREE Hero Steps App that you can download on your iPhone.  
Please remember to register your student on, so you can log on pledges. You can also register your student by signing their pledgebook and you can put pledges on their pledgebook if you don’t have internet access. If you have a smart phone, mobile pledging is available if you’d like to utilize that as well. If you register your child, they will receive a FREE GIFT the next school day! also has all the music and character videos from each Community Challenge. Be sure to check them out. They’re really good!
This weekend is a special challenge—the “Weekend Challenge.” Any student who gets $2 per lap OR $60 flat donation over the weekend will receive the bonus reward, The All Day Flex Frames on Monday. The students are super excited to rise to the challenge!
Thanks again for your help and supporting our class! Let’s work together to finish strong and reach our goal as a team! I’ll see you at the Boosterthon Fun Run event next week!
Have a great weekend!
