    Welcome to 5th grade!!!

    This year we will be learning about everything from ecosystems to forces and motion.  We will be reading many exciting books such as Remember my Name and The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  We are going to learn how much we really apply math to our everyday lives.  There will be lots of hands-on activities and active learning!  We will be going on several exciting field trips.  Get ready and hang on tight for a great school year!

      I welcome you to the fifth grade and I am so excited about this year!
