Wow I can’t believe the end of Trimester 2 is approaching. Fifth graders are aiming for 534,000 words in Accelerated Reader (AR) and 66% completion of 5th grade Khan by March 1st. Thanks for your continued support and encouragement at home. 


Math: We are enjoying working with adding and subtracting fractions in Module 3. We will take the end of Module test after the February break. 


Writing: The students have chosen their opinion topic and are busy drafting their essays. I am impressed with how far they have come as writers. These will be coming home with report cards. 


In mid-March, we'll have trimester two OPTIONAL parent-teacher conferences and report cards will be handed out. I'll send more information later about when your conference will be held, if I am requesting one - just want to give you a heads up! 


Valentine's Day: The students will have the opportunity to exchange cards and treasures/treats on February 14th. Here is the list (I also sent home a hard copy with your child). Let me know if you have any questions!


2020 Jogathon T-shirt Contest

The 2020 Jogathon T-shirt design contest has begun. The deadline is February 14th. Submit your best artwork in the box located on the Home and School Club table in the Loma Office. All entries must be submitted no later than 8:30am the morning of February 14th(maximum 2 entries per student). Looking forward to seeing your beautiful art!

Contest Guidelines

  • Please limit your artwork to black and two other colors of your choice.
  • Solid, vibrant colors and large, bold images work better than pictures with fine, small details.
  • Clip art will not be considered.
  • Artwork should be on an unlined, white, 8 1⁄2” x 11” sheet of paper. 
  • No licensed characters.
  • No tracing -  original drawings only.
  • Write your name and your teacher’s name on the BACK side of your artwork. 


Last, I have updated our Team Ramsay Wish List and Math Homework Page
