5th graders who will be running for 6th grade student council, should have posters ready to hang at MMS – and here if they wish – by next Monday, May 1. They also need a short speech. The class will go to MES, Friday, May 5 to listen to speeches and vote. Please encourage your child to try this.

On May 10, the class has been invited to visit MMS for a little introduction to middle school.

We have completed testing and are almost on our regular schedule – Spring Fling week threw us off a little. We have are working on our research papers more consistently now.
