Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Fifth grade is a very exciting grade to teach, as we learn about our country and students are often aware of states they have been to before!  I love the discussions and the sharing that happens in 5th grade.  There are a lot of changes for my class, including piloting a new language arts/reading program and adding STEM challenges to our math and science.  

    I expect all students to treat each other with respect.  We will further discuss classroom rules and expectations in class.  

    I am looking forward to a new great year together.  Please only bring items to school that are necessary.  Toys and trading cards are not encouraged to be brought, as they get lost or "accidentally" taken.  To avoid situations, it is just best to leave them home.

    Thank you sharing your child with me this year.  I am looking forward to getting to know them as we learn about our country, our history, and our language.  

    Enjoy your last few days of summer vacation.
