Our Classroom Website


Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to another year with your child entering fifth grade! I am delighted to be your child’s teacher this year and am looking forward to helping him/her grow and mature academically and socially. I am hoping that your child will make a smooth transition from fourth grade.  We have a rigorous curriculum in fifth grade with Writing Fundamentals, William Mary Reading for Gifted Learners, Jr. Great Books, vocabulary, spelling, grammar,  and social studies themes about the United States of America. You can find our 5th grade curriculum on this website. Your child is sure to learn a tremendous amount of concepts and skills and have a lot of fun along the way! If you have any questions about the curriculum, your child’s academic progress, or his/her behavior in school; please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teachers. You are welcome to send in a note with your child. The quickest and easiest way to contact us, though, is through e-mail. We check it more often then our voicemail. Please check the our website bi-weekly for updates and notices. Thank you, and let’s have a great school year together!
