School bells are ringing, loud and clear;

    Vacation's over, school is here.

    We hunt our pencils and our books,

    And say goodbye to fields and brooks,

    To carefree days of sunny hours,

    To birds and butterflies and flowers.

    But we are glad school has begun.

    For work is always mixed with fun.

    When autumn comes and the weather is cool,

    Nothing can take the place of school.

    ~Winifred C. Marshall

    Dear 5M Students and Families,

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to your new fifth grade classroom! This school year will bring many exciting adventures and new challenges. I hope that you come to school this year expecting it to be the best you could ever imagine. I am thrilled to meet all of you and learn about who it is you are.

    In our class you will be an important part of our classroom community. We are counting on your ideas and actions to make this year fabulous.  I hope you will come to our classroom with an open mind and a determined heart. I’m looking forward to all that is to come.

    Best wishes,

    Mrs. McCarren
