5th Grade News

Welcome to St. Augustin Catholic School 5th Grade News. I am excited to get to work with such a great group students this school year. Please check out the "About Miss Van Vors" page to get to know me better. Check back to this website throughout the year for news and updates about what is happening in fifth grade!  

August 26th-30th

Wow! What a great first week!  We are starting to get back in the swing of things. I am so impressed with how quickly the students are adjusting to being back in school! It was a very busy week full of learning exceptions (WWJD), PBIS, math assessments, STAR reading, Wonder, spelling, science, and google classroom.  This looks to be a very promising year, and the students seem up to the challenge!
