No matter how you say it: Welcome!  5th Grade promises to be a fun year, and we look forward to seeing the students soon.  A mailing was sent out recently, and it listed a few items students should bring to school, if possible.  Many other items will be available here in class. 

If you would like to receive messages/updates about this blog automatically, there is a "follow by email" option on the right-hand side of this page.  Please add your email; you may receive an email afterwards asking you to "confirm" your request.  Last year, families received updates between roughly 5:00 and 6:00pm.

If your student is getting excited and can't wait to practice math or vocabulary, here is the school's library/media center web page with many fun links: https://satec.follettdestiny.com/common/servlet/presenthomeform.do?l2m=Home&tm=Home&l2m=Home

Week of Memorial Day


🐣 We had a great time experiencing a hatch here in the classroom.  In total, we had 21 chicks hatch, and unfortunately one was very weak and didn't make it.
🐤Mr. Murphy took 20 chicks to the UVM Extension Office in St. Albans on Friday afternoon -- where there were about 150 total little chickens running around.  It was funny and very cute!
🐔The chicks will be part of 4-H programs this summer (to raise the chicks).  For more information about UVM and the 4-H program:

The students did a great job being around and handling the chicks - they were very careful and really seemed to enjoy the addition to our room.  Here are a few videos and a photo of our time:
