Dear Students and Families,


Welcome to 5th Grade!  We are so thrilled to be a part of your learning this year we couldn’t wait to tell you “Welcome.”  Fifth grade is an extremely pivotal time for children - a unique time because it is a bridge between the primary grades and middle school.  It is our job to prepare students to excel, both academically and socially, this upcoming year. We will encourage them throughout the year to increase their self-reliance in preparation for the transition to sixth grade next year.


We will be experiencing many new and exciting hands-on projects, reports, writing assignments, and real-life applications of the curriculum. We want to make learning enjoyable for your child.  We know that not every child learns in exactly the same way and that no one knows your child better than you. We welcome your input and support to help us reach our goals this year. Most importantly, we believe that in order to have a well-balanced and academically-successful student, we must all communicate effectively and consistently.


Remember that our campus opens at 7:50 A.M. and the tardy bell rings at 8:10 A.M.  Please try to be here before the first bell rings at 8:05 A.M.  Students will be dismissed at 3:05 P.M. each day with every Wednesday being a half day and dismissal is at 1:00pm. 


We also encourage students to bring water to school.  Water bottles should be small, manageable, and clearly marked with your name.  Also, no juice or sports drinks… just clear H2O!
