Dispatches from Fifth Grade

Welcome Back!

Hello, Parents!

I trust you had a wonderful and relaxing Winter Break - it's hard to believe that it's already just about over...! We spent the first half visiting family in Virginia, and the last week at home, reading books, playing boardgames, and attempting to sleep in.

As usual, the next few weeks will be busy. We will be starting a new class novel, finishing up the Revolutionary War (if you haven't checked out our corridor timeline yet, be sure to do so soon!), beginning five-paragraph expository essays, and continuing the development of our digital portfolios. As always, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, concerns, or suggestions.

I'm excited to get rolling again with everyone! We have lots to do over the coming months, and I'm looking forward to jumping back in. Have a great afternoon!
