A Note from Your Teachers

Thank you so much for a great year! We hope you've had as much fun as we have. We got to start off the year by going to LBL- a trip we will never forget. We've had incredible discussions. We've solved problems together. We also survived a grueling week of boot camp. After all of that- you've grown bigger, you've gained knowledge, and you've matured. Remember all of the lessons we've taught you this year, and carry them on to 6th grade. Thank you parents for letting us be part of the journey! We are giving them back now- Be good always!

Love you,

Mrs. Leyhew, Mrs. Bowman and Mrs. Cooper
