Fifth Grade Celebration







Our fifth-grade celebration will be on Friday, June 3. Parents are welcome to join us at the skating rink and/or the bowling alley. Parents who wish to skate may join us at their own expense, but there will not be space for parents to bowl. Please do not send additional money with your child; all activities and food will be covered for students. Here is our schedule for the day (times are approximate):


9:30 – Skating at Tarry Hall

  • Cost of skate rental will be covered for students.
  • Students who wish to rent inline skates may pay the difference of $1.
  • Students are also welcome to bring their own skates if they have them.


12:00 – Bowling and lunch at Hudsonville Lanes
We will end the day back at Georgetown Elementary with celebrations in our classrooms.

Science: We are headfirst into our unit on Force and Motion. We have worked on defining, describing, and graphing motion. We have also worked on measuring speed by doing data collecting experiments with the use of tape measures and stopwatches.

ELA: This week our kids will begin their rough draft based on the research they have done in Social Studies.  Each student will write an opinion piece from the point of view of either a pre-revolutionary Patriot or Loyalist.

Math: In math, we have started our unit on metric conversions and understanding volume by studying cubes and prisms.

Social Studies: This week we wrapped up our research using primary and secondary history sources describing the major events that lead up to the Revolutionary War. We will wrap up our study of history this school year discussing the Revolutionary War.
