Welcome Letter

Welcome to Fifth Grade!  

I am so excited to get to be your teacher this year!  If you're new to Sand Creek, you are going to love it!  Sand Creek is a great school.  I believe our year together will be filled with new learnings, some challenges, good times and lots of laughs.  You will learn some things that might be difficult for you, might be amazing to you, and might intrigue you and spur you to learn more about a topic that you've never thought about before. 

This year, we will have a Supply Drop-Off/Meet-the-Teacher day on Thursday, August 4, between 4:00-6:00 pm. This will provide you the opportunity to meet me, find your cubbies, and drop off supplies. This will not replace the Back-to-School Night teacher presentation. The date for that will be August 25th for your parents. 

This year we are going to start the year off by learning about World Explorers and engineering concepts.  Later, we will explore solutes/solvents in the mixtures and solutions unit, and travel around the country with States and Regions.  In Science class, we will learn about life processes by exploring plants and animals and the human body from Mrs. Stage as well as read mysteries and write stories. In American History you will travel through time from the colonization of our country through the Revolutionary War.   You will go to Mrs. Bound for History and Civics classes, to read a historical fiction novel and write an opinion essay. You will join me for Earth Science, learning about renewable and nonrenewable energy.  You will learn to read nonfiction text and write a nonfiction report.

Have a wonderful summer and I will see you in August!
