Another week of school has passed, and another week of MSTEP testing is done! We have one last MSTEP test to take, which is Math. Please look below at what days we have that test. We will review and learn new concepts with our Math unit to prepare for the test. If students would like to prepare, then they can take practice tests at http://www.prepdog.org/5th-grade.htm
Spring is here, and student energy levels are high. We had an assembly this week for students to review the expectations for behavior in school. Remember, we are a “No-Hands” school, meaning students should not touch other students. Please make sure you review the school's rules and your expectations for them to finish the school year strong.
Also, with Spring comes warmer weather. Please make sure students are dressed appropriately for school. Here is the Maltby’s Student Handbook for reference: Maltby Student Handbook https://www.brightonk12.com/cms/lib/MI02209968/Centricity/Domain/8/MIS%20handbook%20revised%2012-2020.pdf
Thank you to all parents who donated items for our Earth Day activity and treat. It was a nice reward after MSTEP testing. The students created products from plastic bags. We had student groups create clothes, window currents, and accessories. It was a great afternoon in fifth grade!
