Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I am looking forward to a fabulous fifth grade year! I am excited to get to know and work with both you and your child. This year your child will participate in learning opportunities, such as problem based and blended learning. He or she will have access a variety of technology tools and Google classroom. We will be learning about and practicing citizenship in the classroom, with technolgy, and in our school. Our "one school, one book" is The Seven Habits of Healthy Kids. Listen for and inquire about growth mindset and seven habits terms or discussions. These positive leadership skills will help prepare your child for the future!
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
I can be reached by phone at GVES, 373-5454, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fifth Grade Fun: Virginia Reader's Choice Books, DARE, DARE Day, 40 Book Reading Challenge, WGRZ, Student Council, 5th Graders vs. the Undefeated Teachers Kickball Game, and much more!
Looking forward to seeing you at back to school night! If you have your school supplies, please bring them so that you don't have to worry about them on the first day of school.
