On Monday Patricia will be joining our class IF Wendell's Warriors can raise 1,000 gold pieces. Good luck, students!
December was a JOY in 5th grade. We finished all of our classwork for 2018 and got to celebrate. Our white elephant gift exchange was exciting to experience. The gingerbread houses were sticky and adorable to make with our buddies. We also managed to get the first edition of our class newsletter hot off the press at 3:05 PM. A big thank you goes to our photographer/ main writer who was determined to have it complete. I am beyond blessed to have such a top notch group of kids to work with each day! They were even understanding when Dunkin' Donuts was too busy to fill our order and I had to cancel our Pulse Leadership Group meeting.
Our newest newsletters from the class and Lincoln are below. Enjoy!
The night before school starts always feels like Christmas Eve did when I was a kid. I can't sleep with anticipation! Especially this year; I haven't started September in 5th grade since the 1990s. I have the hair to prove it (see photo below). I included the welcome letter from open house. It was fantastic meeting all of you last week. Parents, if you haven't yet, join remind.com! Instructions with the class code were sent home.
Get a good night's rest, and I'll see you bright and early!
Ms Palumbo had to go get her wonky hand checked out today. Since she can't stop working, she made a video about this VERY cool job.
I'm doing a project this term! Check out this page to see the progress.
Kudos to Zhoe, Michael, and Elias for exceeding their math goals last term!
A little throwback action for you: Here is a picture of my eighth grade graduation party. My mother ordered a singing monkey. No joke. And you thought your parents were weird!
It's important to be yourself in life, unless you can be a Mush. Then always be a Mush!
A little Throwback Thursday action for you:
BRRRRRR. Beloit has quite the cold snap going! As I looked around my classroom today, I realized 30% of our kiddos were missing. That's one in THREE!
It is a good time for a quick reminder of attendance policies. Click here to read the district attendance policy taken from our most recent SDB Family Handbook.
We miss you when you aren't here! Please make every effort to get to school.

Ms. Palumbo needs a place for her random thoughts. She's putting them here!
