Dear fifth graders and their families,
I hope you have had a fun and relaxing summer! I am so glad that I am going to be your fifth grade teacher. I can’t wait to meet everyone! We are going to have a tremendous year!
I had a busy summer because I had a big change in my life in the spring. I am the proud mom of a baby boy, Jace! He was born in May. I have really enjoyed spending time taking care of him. Because of this, I will be taking a leave from school during 1st Trimester. I will join you for the remainder of the school year! My substitute for this leave will be officially announced at a later time.
Conway School’s Back to School Parade and Open House will be on Monday, August 29th. I hope you can stop by to say hello, find your desk, and check out the classroom. If you can’t make it, I understand, and we will look forward to seeing you on the first day of school, which is Wednesday, August 31st.
The supply list is to the right. A more detailed list can be found online on the school’s website. Please show it to your parents/guardians and make sure you bring all of them with you on the first day. It helps to start the year prepared. We will go through our supplies, put together our notebooks, and label our dividers together on the first day of school.
Enjoy the last weeks of summer! I will see you soon!
