Dear 5th Grade Scholars and Families,
Welcome to 5th grade! This year, it is my goal that each 5th grade scholar will graduate to middle school as a positive, bold, and confident, life long learner. Carrying into the world, the active thinking, joyful learning, compassion and kindness, that we have cultivated in our classroom. In our class, we will focus on high expectations and academic achievement, as well as, positive social and emotional growth. Every scholar is unique and extraordinary.
Thank you, families, for sharing your precious children with me and for your partnerships in the home to school connection. It's going to be a phenomenal year! Education is my passion and I feel lucky to be your child's teacher. I am happy to talk with you about any questions or concerns you may have about your child.

You are the reason I am here."
