    My Classroom Mission

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 School Year!   We will be learning many fascinating things in the different subject areas. Fifth grade is a great time to hone the skills we have learned in elementary school to prepare and develop the good habits necessary to handle the challenges and rigor of middle school.

     Having a good attitude and being cooperative is an important factor in being successful in school. Classroom expectations are to turn in work on time and to one’s best ability and appropriate behavior towards others, the teacher and one’s-self.
