Life in 5th Grade

5th grade has lots of new things from 4th grade… for example: We have bathroom passass, we have 5 teachers, there’s no writing staar, we take are backpacks to every class, we have hall meetings, there’s a science staar, we get more involved with American history and science, and even more different things. This year i’m looking forward in doing lots of science experiments, passing all of the staar tests, getting A’s, become better at reading and science, read more, I want to make new friends in school, church, etc. I want to do whatever I can do to get ready for middle school next year! It’s very, very, VERY hard without Jenna this year, but i really hope sometime this year me and my Mom can go visit her in Tennessee. I hope that I can get more involved with Volleyball and dance as well. I know that 5th grade might be harder than 4th but, if you just listen to your teachers, do what you’re told and be kind to EVERYONE then you’ll have a great and fun year, trust me!! I’m very excited for the things that we will do in 5th grade, and I hope 5th grade will be a year I will remember.
