Miss Akimoto's Class

Welcome to Fifth Grade in Room 12!

What's New? 

  • The Hour of Code is happening from December 5-9thMother-Daughter Code Night is Tuesday, Dec. 6th from 5:30-6:30, and Fun with Fathers and Coding is Friday, Dec. 9th from 2:30-3:30.  Both events are in the SV Computer Lab and Library.

  • Our field trip to the Paradise Ice Rink is on Wednesday, December 21st from 8:40-11:00.  Be sure to wear warm clothes and bring extra socks!  Legs must be covered by pants, leggings, long socks, etc.  If you haven't turned in your permission slip, please do so as soon as you can.  Thank you! 

  •  For our winter celebration we will be doing a holiday mug exchange.  Each child can bring a new or gently used coffee mug to school.  Please fill the mug with trinkets and treats (about $5 worth) and wrap the mug so that the contents are a surprise.  As the contents are a surprise, please make sure that a boy or a girl could enjoy the mug and what is inside.  Please do not attach a gift tag to the mug (it adds to the surprise), but please make sure that your child can identify which mug they have brought as a gift so the receiver can thank them.

  • On December 22nd (the day before break begins), we will exchange mugs.  Students who bring a mug will get to pick one out at random (not their own!).  We will take turns opening the wrapped mugs and thanking the givers.  And of course, we will be enjoying some hot cocoa and apple cider out of our new mugs after the exchange.  :)
