5th Grade News

For the Week of August 29 - September 2

We had a great first week with our 5th graders! Our theme this year is "Wolfpack Strong." We believe that learning and growing together is the key to our success. Strength lies in the pack, and we will remember this theme throughout the year as we work cooperatively to be successful!


Don't forget to visit our 5th Grade Website at
