Flynn 5th graders held a tree planting ceremony on Thursday, June 10 on the Flynn playground to celebrate their learning this year and to reaffirm their commitment to working towards a world with justice for all people, regardless of race, gender, religion or identity. In the fall 5th graders designed and carried out a Black Lives Matter flag raising ceremony and wanted to finish the year with a project speaking to the same issues. Every 5th grader painted a river stone with different shades of flesh tone paint, then printed a word or slogan exemplifying their hopes for a better world. The tree planting was a culmination of a unit on soil health and composting. Horsford Gardens and Nursery in Charlotte donated and delivered to Flynn the 20 ft. Sugar Maple tree.
SBAC Testing for all grades will be May 10 – May 14. for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade
As 5th Graders, we want to set an example on what it means to stand up against bullying. We asked teachers to share the anti-bullying promise with their students and had them trace their hands and write a sentence on why they stand against bullying. We then created this bulletin board.
I make a COMMITMENT to take a stand against bullying. I will treat others with RESPECT and KINDNESS. I will have the COMPASSION to not be a bully and the COURAGE to not be a bystander. It is my RESPONSIBILITY to help others being bullied and to report bullying.
