5th Grade

Mrs. Ward

Thank you!

It has been a wonderful year having your child in my class. I have watched them grow both academically and socially. I will truly miss this group of students. There is no doubt that they will be successful next year in 6th grade. I wish them all the best of luck next year.


Thank you, parents, for all of your support this year. I couldn't have done it without you. Enjoy every moment of summer! Please take a look at the end of the year video and Camp Whitcomb video below.

Read Like a Pirate

We have worked so hard this year on all fronts. In order to keep your child going strong this summer, we have created a resource called Read Like a Pirate: Summer 2015. It is a website that has reading incentives (“Treasures”), book recommendations (“Matey Shout Outs” and “Hooked on Books”), games (“Walk the Plank”), apps, and activities for writers.

We strongly encourage all readers to dig into this treasure trove and read like a pirate!
