It's the start of a new school year, and while it may not be what we're used to, it still is full of promise and excitement! Fifth grade is always a wonderful year of new learning and this year will be no different. 
We will have an amazing year together and you will grow so much! 

It is my hope as your teacher to spark your intellectual curiosity. I want to see you come alive as a THINKER! The world is an endlessly interesting place and the academic content in 5th grade is rich and varied, with subjects including Geography,  Geology, and Geometry. We will study these subjects (and more), all the while increasing our literacy skills by engaging with challenging texts. You will become stronger readers and writers this year and you will love it! There's so much amazing literature out there - there's definitely something for everyone. 
Additionally, we will form new friendships and help each other grow.
We will become a Community of Learners.

Can you imagine anything more wonderful? I can't! I am excited to embark on this journey with you!
