A Warm Welcome To Fifth Grade!

Dear Fifth-grade Students & Families,


It is my pleasure to welcome you to your new fifth grade classroom! This school year will bring many exciting adventures and new challenges. I hope that you come to school this year expecting it to be the best you could ever imagine. I am thrilled to meet all of you and learn about who it is you are.


In our class you will be an important part of our classroom community. We are counting on your ideas and actions to make this year fabulous. Fifth grade is set up so that you will gain experience working with more than one teacher. We will be exploring puzzling aspects of math and various problem solving strategies.  I hope you will find that a three way rotation will give you and your child an opportunity to experience different teaching styles and personalities as you prepare to transition to middle school.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions and concerns! I look forward to an amazing year!


Mrs. Caswell
