Welcome to Mrs. Green’s 5th Grade Science Class!
Science Progress Reports -
Please be aware that Science grades tend to fall once we get into the content (soil, weather, solar system, etc.). The first 9 weeks has primarily been process skills which students tend to do well on. Now that we are delving into our content, it is important for students to be diligent about getting work turned in on time, attending class regularly, and studying outside the classroom. They can always check out a Science textbook to keep at home if needed.
CIS collects empty ink cartridges and old cell phones to turn in for cash for our school through Funding Factory. Check out their site for more information. http://www.fundingfactory.com/ If you have any items you would like to donate, send them with your child and they can drop them off in my room, Mrs. Coleman’s or Mrs. Reynolds. Thank you!
