Ride the wave of success...Be Prepared!



Hello New Fifth Graders.

It was so wonderful to see all of you on Thursday. I could tell that you are excited and ready to start our new year together. Be sure to pack your backpacks the night before with all of your supplies and know what your after school plans are. I look forward to seeing you bright and early Tuesday morning.

WHAT GREAT MEMORIES HAVE YOU MADE THIS SUMMER?

   Hello New Fifth Graders!
   Summer memories make great writing topics at the beginning of the year. Be thinking of your experiences and make a list while they are fresh in your mind. Your first writing in Fifth grade will be a personal narrative. I can't wait to see all of you and hear about your summer adventures. See you September 3rd.
   
Here are some of my favorite memories from this summer...

1. Welcoming our newest family member our Golden Retriever..."Kai"

 2. Riding the super cool rides at Disneyworld.

 3. Getting back on a surfboard (Have not done that since I was a teen in California.) SOOOOO
     Fun!
  4. Visiting backstage at Sea World with Camden and getting to hold a real Penguin.


5. Going to Gettysburg, PA. to experience the 150 year reenactment of the Battle at     Gettysburg...WOW, so Awesome!
