Welcome to Grade 5!  Wow!
 
      I trust everyone had a fantastic summer and are ready to go at it again.  Right?!  ;)  I welcome all returning and new families to a new and exciting year ahead.  I will be your child's teacher for Math and Language.  Mrs. Fitzel will be delivering the Religion and Family Life program. 
    In our classroom, I emphasize hard work, perseverance, teamwork, fairness, respect, and a sense of community.  We learn together, from each other, and at our own individual pace.  We support others, try our best, and have FUN!
