Welcome to School #5

  • GOLD STAR READING PARTY!!!

    Students at School # 5 worked extra hard the 3rd quarter to earn their invitation to the “Gold Star Reading Party”.  This quarter’s theme was ‘red carpet readers’.  Those who made their AR goals for reading enough books got to attend a movie premiere in the gymnasium and walk the red carpet with paparazzi and flashing cameras.  Most students dressed extra fancy and cool in preparation for their walk of fame. During the movie, students were treated with bags of popcorn from the PTO.  One student from each classroom was selected as the “VIR” or very important reader.  They received premiere red carpet treatment with a framed photograph on the Hollywood stars walk of fame and VIP seating during the movie.  The students truly felt special and famous for all their efforts they have put forth in reading and quizzing to grow their brain.  Adam Lukach, top reader in the school said, “It felt really nice to have the privilege of sitting in comfy chairs and to be treated good for all my 275 points I’ve received!”

    The following students were selected as the School 5 Very Important Readers

  • WORLD BOOK DAY

    World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world., World Book Day is celebrated every year on April 23.  

    On Monday it was celebrated at all of the Dunkirk Elementary Schools and Middle School..  Over 20 students from Dunkirk High School, along with teachers Mrs. Jillian Domenico and Mrs. Megan Larivey, visited School 5 first. The students gathered in the library where they divided into smaller groups to distribute a free book to each student.  They also read a short story to the students while visiting the classes.  The books for this event were donated by Erie 2 BOCES School Library System and Media Center via a national program called First Book.  Sue Bartle, School Library System Coordinator, helped to coordinate this event.  After leaving School 5 the High School students and teachers were visiting all the other elementay schools in the district, as well as the Middle School.

  • Specially recognized “ELITE” students were invited to a catered dinner at School 5.   Elite students are defined by both their peers and teachers as students who always represent their school at the highest level.  Each classroom nominated 2 students to be recognized as such.  Dinner was catered by teachers from School 5, as well as students from the high school participating in Upward Bound.

  • 5th grade students from Dunkirk School #5 recently met up at the local theater on a Saturday afternoon.  The class watched the newly released movie, Wonder, based on the best selling novel they have been reading aloud in class.The book is about a 5th grade boy who faces challenges due to physical disfigurement.  The story ties in wonderfully with character traits that are being reinforced and practiced throughout the school year.  An area organization, the Dunkirk Firemen Exempts Club, made a monetary donation for all students in the class to receive a movie ticket.
