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 Thunder Rolling in the Mountains and The River Between Us. 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! 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!
Update: TalkingPoints is not working. Please use ClassDojo.
Please download the TalkingPoints app to your phone.
TalkingPoints is a free application that lets you communicate with your children’s teachers and school. You will be able to send and receive messages through this application in your preferred language, because TalkingPoints will translate your message into English for teachers. Stay engaged and involved in your child’s learning by communicating and collaborating with their teacher and school using TalkingPoints!

Any unfinished class work: Any work not finished in class will need to be completed and sent to school the following day.
