5th Grade Showcase on Friday, November 22
Thursday, November 21, 2019 9:20 AM
5th Grade Showcase
Friday, November 22 
10:00am AND 2:00pm
5th grade classrooms (Rmd 202, 204 and 236)
Dear Parents,
Tomorrow, November 22nd is the 5th grade Showcase. Different this year:  We will not be performing as a whole group in the multipurpose room as we have done in the past. Instead, we are showcasing our learning through individual and team displays. Each 5th grade classroom will showcase a different Mesoamerican culture: Aztec, Mayan, Incas. There will be half hour slots to come in and enjoy a taste of the past. Students from other classrooms, parents, and any other visiting community members will rotate around the classroom in small groups to see brief presentations given by the fifth graders. You might even be asked to write a little about what you have learned after visiting a few stations. No worries about bringing anything, we will provide the pencils and paper. Feel free to visit all three classrooms! The 5th graders are very excited for your visit! They have been working diligently to put together a presentation that will teach you what they have researched and learned. We hope you enjoy this new way of showcasing our learning and look forward to your feedback. Our presentations will be at 10:00am and then again in the afternoon at 2:00pm. All are welcome, so bring in relatives, neighbors and friends.
