Fifth grade is a big year. We are preparing our students for a HUGE transistion to the middle school. The teaching of P.R.I.D.E. becomes very important as next year they will not have a homeroom teacher to help them stay organized and have that personal “family” feeling they have had here at the elementary.
Celebrating P.R.I.D.E. is something we 5th graders take seriously. On February 10, 2017 5-J had a celebration of their P.R.I.D.E. We wore our PJ’s to school, watched a movie brought and voted on by the kids, and had snacks. It was definitely a great day to be a 5th grader at Van Allen.
