Hear Ye! Hear Ye!

Attention young lords and ladies of the land of O’Neill…

You are being challenged to a QUEST…

a year-long quest of learning…

FIFTH GRADE

The word “medieval” comes from the Latin word medium aevumi, which means “middle ages.”  Fifth grade is similar to the Middle Ages in that you are in between the lower grades and junior high.

New challenges may include switching classes, band or Soundsational Singers, producing Eagle Eye News, Palm handhelds and other technology tools, and many other noble adventures.  But along with the exciting comes added responsibilities—more homework, more independent work, and higher expectations of behavior and working with others. 

For  those valiant enough to join in,

this quest is guaranteed to bring forth many adventures.

We may, at times, face savage dangers and fearsome challenges.

But, fear not!

For with each and every trained and decorated knight

devoting himself to the common good,

we will accomplish our QUEST…

FIFTH GRADE!
