Ponwith Press

September 19-23

Tuesday, September 20th is a scheduled 2-hour late start day!

Happy Monday!

I hope that you all had a nice weekend and that you are ready to take on the week! We have a busy week ahead in fifth grade. Students will be exploring mindset and learning about how their mindsets impact their learning and performance both in and outside of school. We will also be finishing up bus safety today (Monday) and we will start content rotations on Wednesday. I will be at a meeting tomorrow (Tuesday) so there will be a guest teacher in the classroom. As always, thank you for sharing your child with me! :)
