Wow! It's hard to believe that our fabulous fifth grade students will soon be "crossing the bridge" to middle school!
Last week, the fifth grade students went out into the business community for their "World of Work" Day. In preparation, students created resumes. Our local businesses "hired" them for the morning, and students got to work with the business owners to learn how their different businesses operate. Dressing professionally and using good manners are other aspects of this introduction to the business world. It's exciting to imagine what our fifth grade students' careers will be when they grow up!
After a busy morning on the job, the fifth grade students were treated to a special pizza luncheon provided by the PTA. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and ate and played outside in the school courtyard.
The fifth grade also participates in a basketball shoot out fundraiser to purchase a special gift to the school. The Class of 2014 commissioned local artist Fran Hyland to paint a mural in the gym. It is so beautiful! Please take a moment to view the different stages of the painting in the video.
Last night, the fifth grade students rocked the house in their musical performance. They sang, acted, danced, played the recorders and played the xylophones. They were amazing! I hope music will always be a special part of their lives!
