5th Grade Updates

On January 7, our 5th graders were visited by Hungary Creek Middle School Principal, Mr. Moose, and their 6th grade School Counselor, Mrs. Otley. They shared a lot of great information about exciting courses, clubs, and opportunities offered at Hungary Creek. Please ask your child about the visit.

Your child was given a middle school packet and a Hungary Creek Course Information sheet…these are very important items; please review these 2 documents with your child and hold on to them. There is information about the 6th grade course registration process that requires your action. If you have any questions, please reach out to Ms. Guelig, our school counselor, or your child’s 5th grade teacher.

Also, please mark your calendars to attend the Curriculum Fair at Hungary Creek Middle School on January 17 from 6:00 – 7:30pm. I highly encourage you and child attend; this will be a good start in the transition to 6th grade (details are included in the documents sent home with your child).

Kindergarten students in Mrs. Milwit’s class used Seesaw to take their picture, type their name, draw a few of their favorite things, and record their voice introducing themselves. Their finished work was sent to their student portfolio in Seesaw.

Students in Mrs. Baum’s 5th grade class logged into Schoology and completed an “All About Me” Google Slides presentation.
