Welcome Pine-Richland Class of 2029

Dear Fifth Grade Students and Parents,

Welcome to fifth-grade Grasslands! We are so excited to meet you and be your teachers this year. Can you believe that you are about to begin your 2nd year at Eden Hall? You will soon see that fifth grade will be a challenging and exciting year, filled with many new adventures.

We know that you may be feeling a little anxious for the first day, but just relax and remember that everyone is starting a new year - just like you. Even your teachers get nervous for school to begin!

On the back of this letter is a school supply list with items you will need for the first day of school. There are two items not on your list that you will need every day… a SMILE and a POSITIVE ATTITUDE!!

Enjoy the last days of your summer vacation to the fullest! Don’t forget to get plenty of sleep so you are well rested, relaxed, and ready to swing into a new year!

We are so excited to get to know you. We will see you on Tuesday, August 31st, ready to begin a new school year!


Mrs. Myler,

Mr. Hunt,

Mrs. Brockway,

and Mrs. Clark



One part of being successful in 5th grade is organization.

Our fifth grade team is asking that each student come to school with the following materials:

Large binder (between 2-3 inches)

● Pack of 5-subject pocket dividers (Please keep in sealed package.)

● Composition book/journal

● Single subject spiral notebook (Mr. Hunt's math students only)

● A colored pen or two (for checking papers)

● At least one highlighter

● A supply of pencils

● 1 or 2 Expo/dry erase markers and eraser - old socks are great erasers!

● 3-hole punched pencil case that is able to fit into your binder

● 1 basic folder for World Language (no prongs)

● A good independent reading book

● Earbuds or headphones to remain at school


● Water bottle (filling station in the biome - no water fountains at this time)

● Ruler (with measurements down to ¼ inch)

● Extra mask(s) for locker or backpack

● Personal pack of tissues

● Personal hand sanitizer

● Mini-stapler

● Mini-pencil Sharpener

We would gladly welcome hand sanitizer with pumps

and sanitizing wipes if you can spare either!


Please reach out to your child's homeroom teacher with any questions.

** Note - We are a nut-free biome this year due to severe allergies. While we do not have an assigned snack time in 5th grade, please keep this in mind when packing any special treats for your child.
