    Fifth grade is a transition year filled with many new challenges and responsibilities.  A strong parent-teacher partnership and parent involvement will greatly enhance your child's fifth grade year. Please feel free to contact us at anytime regarding your child's success in school. We will work very hard to do what is best for each child.   If you wish to speak with us, please send a note to school with your child and we will contact you at our earliest convenience. From 7:45-2:30 we may not be able to speak with parents as we are devoting our time to our children. We can already tell that this is going to be a great year and we are very excited about this opportunity to work with you and your child!
