    What to Know About Fifth Grade
     
    I look forward to a successful 2019 to 2020 school year. To be successful, I expect that students come to school each day ready to learn and participate in classroom activities with a positive mindset. During the first week of school and beyond, our fifth grade class will work at building a welcoming classroom community by establishing a classroom mission statement and discussing what makes a classroom successful (rules, behaviors, etc.). Once procedures, routines, and a safe learning environment is created, our fifth grade class will be ready to explore new concepts in Math, Science, Social Studies, Writing and Language Arts. Learning is a continuous process. I am going to motivate students to work hard towards achieving their personal and academic goals this upcoming year, as well as be brave and courageous as they take risks in their learning to reach their fullest potential.
