5th Grade Class

Welcome Back! This is going to be an exciting and fun year in Room 313! Fifth grade is a year of great academic and social growth. Throughout this year, students will work to prepare for their transition to middle school. It's wonderful to see how they grow throughout the year. We will focus on collaborative and critical thinking skills which will prepare them to be successful in all aspects of their life. Our goal is to help students become more independent and to embrace the Reading and Writing Workshop. We are all responsible in their learning while creating in a positive and safe learning environment.

We truly believe communication between parents, students and teachers is essential for success. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us both. Our email is and
