We are pleased to welcome you to our Fifth Grade Website. We hope this will be your portal to many of the activities and much of the information about what we do in our classrooms this year. If you have any suggestions on how we might improve the site, don’t hesitate to let your child’s teacher know. We are always looking for good ideas.
