Dear Rising 5th Grade Parents,

The planning process for next year’s 5th grade Tybee Island trip is underway!  Always a highlight of students’ 5th grade year, the trip enriches and extends the Science, Language Arts, and Social Studies curriculums through classes, hands-on activities, and fun adventures.

This fall, students will attend a 3-day field study at the Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island.  We’ll depart on Wednesday, October 12 and return Friday, October 14.  We wanted to share this information with you now so that you can plan for your student to attend.  An informational meeting about the trip will be held prior to the beginning of Curriculum Night in the fall. 

The cost of this fall’s trip is $215 (which includes classes, transportation, lodging, meals, snacks, and insurance), and will be due no later than Friday, August 26.  For your convenience, we will be prepared to accept payments at Sneak-A-Peek and on Curriculum Night.

For those of you interested in chaperoning the trip, we currently have 17 chaperone spaces available.  Please know that the chaperone approval process takes approximately 6 weeks.  Chaperones will need to complete an application and submit it no later than Friday, August 19.  Chaperone trip costs are $210, which will be due no later than Friday, August 26.  A chaperone application is attached to this email. Complete applications may be emailed to brockb@fultonschools.org or returned to the school marked “attn.: Beth Brock”.

We are very much looking forward to our upcoming trip – learning about the beach, ocean, marsh, and maritime forest by actually being there is an amazing and unforgettable experience that we look forward to sharing with our rising 5th grade class!  For a quick preview, be sure to check out www.burton4h.org and http://picasaweb.google.com/burton4h/Burton4HCenter#

Working From Home with the Redbird Mathematics

We are excited to inform you that your child currently has a student account for Redbird Mathematics.  This account was obtained through their academic institution.  Redbird Mathematics is a K-7 web based mathematics curricula developed at Stanford University.  Besides the school environment students may also elect to use Redbird Math in alternative locations.  In fact, Redbird Math can be accessed from basically anywhere with an internet connection and a modern device.  We hope your child enjoys using Redbird Math.

The Redbird Mathematics website where your child will login is listed below.

http://fcs.redbirdschools.com/

Username: Your child's 10 digit FC ID/lunch number

  Password:  Birthdate in 8-digit format (Ex. 01252008)

Each student is on their own learning "pathway" so it is very important to allow your child to work on Redbird independently.  If assistance is provided, his/her pathway would change and the content could cause frustration. Thank you for agreeing to maximize your child's learning experience without assisting them. ​


The #BeKind movement is in full swing at Birmingham Falls.  We encourage students to spread the #BeKind message throughout our community and in your home.  Whenever your child demonstrates an act of kindness in their community or home, record it on the Kindness Tracker form linked below. When your child reaches 25 acts of kindness, he or she may return the form to their teacher to earn a reward.   BE PART OF THE #BeKind WALL OF FAME - Submit a picture showing one of your child's acts of kindness in motion, and we will display it on our #BeKind wall of fame.    Help us cover this wall by the end of the year!!  Remember -  #BeKind everywhere you go!​
