Dear Fifth Graders,

Hi, my name is Ella Kim.  I graduated last year and have accomplished many things.  If you have a concern, just talk to Ms. Waldman and she will always have advice waiting.  I bet you all have really good friends - stay with them.  Fifth grade is awesome, but sometimes it will throw you around and you will need friends to help pick you back up.

Here is some advice you will need:
  • Never give up (I mean never).
  • Try and try even if you fail.
  • Don't let people get inside your head.
  • Remember that stars can't shine without darkenss.
  • Always be you.
  • Reach for your goals.
  • Cherish every moment.
Fifth grade will go by fast, believe me.  I hope that you have the best year possible.

yours truly,
Ella Kim
