Maturation

Parents,
Due to recent changes in legislation and policy, Quest has opted to provide parents an opportunity to access maturation resources electronically. Feel free to take some time to watch the below video with your son or daughter and respond to any questions they may have. These videos are the same as those which have been used in past years. Please note that the first link will direct you to the boys’ maturation video and the second link to the girls’ video. We hope that providing these materials electronically will allow you to access them at your convenience and support positive communications about maturation between you and your child.

State Report

We have come to that time of year where fifth-grade students research and write a state report and design a state float. Most of the research and writing will be done at school, along with a digital portion they will complete in class.The floats will need to be put together at home. The guidelines for the student floats are as follows:

State Float: Due May 23rd
Students are to make a miniature float (not a diorama) representing your state. Follow the steps below:

  • Use a shoebox. Your float may not be bigger than 14 x 14 inches.
  • Completely cover the outside of the box (e.g. tissue paper, foil, colored rice that is glued on, construction paper, etc.)
  • Design the top part of your float using creativity and imagination Think about what you have learned about your state’s national parks, motto, symbols, etc. Take some of these scenes, replicas, or figures that represent your state, placing them on the top in an appealing way.
  • Somewhere on the float, you must have the name of your state.
  • Your state float should resemble a real float in a parade. Think about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day or Tournament of Roses parade floats.
  • Don’t forget your name!
  • Be creative, and have fun!
Our class will display their state floats on May 23rd from 1:30 – 2:30. Parents are welcome to come!
