    About My Classroom
    Welcome to fifth grade!
    In this classroom ... we do second chances, we apologize, we forgive, we respect each other, we never give up, we keep promises, we encourage one another, we laugh often, we belong, we are a family.
    "Three things in human life are important: the first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind."  Henry James
     ****Please bring a snack and an independent reading book on the first day of school.

    Below is a letter from the 5th grade team regarding lockers:
    Greetings Parents:
    It is hard to believe that the start of school is just around the corner.  We wanted to give you ample notification about your child's locker situation.
    All 4th and 5th graders will be assigned a locker. We ask that no locks be purchased to place on your child's locker.  Also, children in the Middle School like to decorate the interior of their lockers and we reserve that privilege for the Middle School because they do have locks and they are responsible for their items if anything is lost or stolen.  Again, please do not purchase any locker decor.
    We look forward to welcoming your children back to school in just a few weeks.
    The 5th Grade Team
