It's hard to believe the first month of school is already behind us, and we are already halfway through first quarter! That said, the students are adjusting well to their new routines and to fifth grade. This month fifth grade teachers will be holding parent-teacher conferences. Please contact your child's teacher for more information, or if you have any questions. The fifth graders are looking forward to their field trip to Potomac Falls High School for a musical performance on Friday, October 31st before our fall parties later that afternoon. Please fill out, sign, and return the permission slip for that field trip as soon as possible. As always, if you have any questions or concerns that arise throughout the month, please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher.
