Fifth Grade Updates

October 15, 2015

Dear parents,

Thank you for taking the time to meet with us to discuss your child in parent/teacher conferences. Your children are wonderful, and we love working with them every day!


Our trip to Rice Middle School's Pep Rally was awesome and gave our students a taste of all the different organizations in which they can choose to be involved in middle school.


We are slowly getting more added to our Google Site! Thank you for your patience. I've uploaded some pictures from this year for you to view. Our site is:
