5th Grade Webpage - Mrs. Julie Tummonds

 

Welcome.      

We had a great Valentine Day celebration on Tuesday.  We had pizza and made an unique craft project for our families.  Thank you to Mrs. Henderson for providing us with this memorable experience.  Mid-winter break is upon us and is a good time to catch up on some rest.  I encourage students to read and to practice math IXL.  

Fifth grade students began participating in the 12-week DARE program on Wednesday, January 31st.  This is a drug and alcohol resistance program. 

Academic Olympics is on Saturday, February 24th at St. Augustine's school in Richmond.  Students are regularly meeting with their parent coaches for this event. 

We will be having a fifth grade only field trip to the Detroit Tigers game on Thursday, April 19th. Game begins at 1:10 pm.  Admission to this game is a reward for the service squad work that our students have been doing since the beginning of fourth grade.  I have ordered enough tickets for each student to bring one chaperone free of charge.  Transportation needs to be provided for by the student's family.  Please see me with any questions.
