Dear Parents,                                                                                                                                        

      The children are learning a lot and having a good time here at Eastern!  In social studies, the students have been working hard learning all about the Maya, Inca and Aztec civilizations.  The children are learning all about these civilizations, their structures and the artifacts they left behind.  The students will also start familiarizing themselves with the different areas the region of Central America as well as the locations of other countries in South America.  We will keep you posted on our progress.

    In science class, the students are working very hard learning all about The Sun, Stars and the Solar System.  The students are learning all about the Sun, its layers and how it makes its own light.  The children are also learning about the many ways the Sun affects the Earth.  Ask your child to tell you all about it.

   This month the students will take their unit test over the Sun and other Stars unit and continue their study of outer space.  The students will investigate the planets and other cellestial bodies that orbit the Sun.  the children will learn all about gravity and how the International Space Station stays in orbit around the Earth.  They will also investigate how NASA and others are exploring Space. Ask your child to tell you all about what they are learning in science class.

    We are having a wonderful time learning, working with fellow classmates and striving for independence in fifth grade.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me here at Eastern.

 Sincerely,

Sarah Freundlich

5th Grade Teacher
