For Parents

  • Welcome, Parents!!

    Welcome to fifth grade. I look forward to working with you in ensuring your child has a fun and successful year. In fifth grade, students learn to gain responsibilities and independence in their organization and work habits.  It is essential to support them in their quest to become well rounded students who will carry successful skills with them beyond fifth grade.

    Making the home / school connection, between parent, teacher and student is crucial to any child's success. Open lines of communication are key to making this year successful for your child.  Please feel free to contact me anytime through my school e-mail address,

    Another purpose of this page is to familiarize you with a few of my classroom expectations for  your child.  I want your child to come to a welcoming and safe environment each and every day. My expectations are geared toward each child reaching their highest level of learning. I try to instill the "Spartan Way" qualities (Respect, Responsibility, Hard Work, and Compassion) in all of my students.  

    Please stay in contact so we can work together to make this your son or daughter's best year ever!
