Mrs. Kuehne's 5th grade Language Arts Classroom

Welcome to a new school year at Elmwood Middle School! My name is Mrs. Kuehne and I am very excited to be working with you and your child this year to achieve success in the fifth grade. We have a fulfilling year ahead with a lot to accomplish, and I am eager to get started!

The fifth grade language arts curriculum covers many exciting new topics and this year will be filled with many meaningful learning experiences. I am passionate about learning and feel that students can learn best when their lessons are relevant and useful. I plan on providing your child with many memorable educational experiences and hands-on-activities to help facilitate their learning in a practical way.

            I have very high expectations for my fifth grade students and am confident we can meet these expectations with teamwork and communication. A child’s quality education needs support and hard work from the teacher, parent, and student. Let’s work together to reach our maximum potential this year! Fifth grade is a big year at the start of middle school and we need focus, a positive attitude, and a bit of risk-taking in order to achieve our goals. Our work will be challenging, but very rewarding and I expect students to take initiative and responsibility for their own learning. On this website you will find resources, educational games, and videos to facilitate your child's learning.

Parent Involvement Matters!
