Welcome Back!

I have spent a lot of time this summer sitting at this table and reading while listening to the birds and gentle breezes.

Summer is winding down and it's nearly time to start back to school!  Yikes, it hardly seems possible.  Where did the summer go?  Our first day is August 26 but the good news is that we start off gently with a three day week.

This summer I have been busy organizing the classroom and developing problem based units of study for us to delve into this year. Although I hate to see the summer vacation come to an end I am getting excited about starting a new school year with my new class of fifth graders!

Be watching your mailbox for a newsletter outlining some of our units of study and offering an opportunity for extra credit!  I am looking forward to seeing you all soon, and in the meanwhile I hope that you will take a moment to write to me and tell me about your summer and your hopes and goals for your fifth grade year!

I have included a suggested supply list in the newsletter you will be receiving.  In the meanwhile, if you wish to check it right now, please click on the Summer Newsletter link to see an electronic copy.  Likewise, you can access a copy of the Suggested Classroom Supply List by clicking on this link.

See you soon!
