Fifth Grade

Dear Fifth Grade Students and Parents,

Welcome to Fifth Grade!  I hope you are having an enjoyable and relaxing summer.  To get a jump start on the school year, I am asking that your file folder and notebooks are labeled and color coded (bottom margin) prior to the first day of school.  This will make the transition to Fifth Grade much easier.  

Notebooks: Math (red), ELA (green), Science (blue), Social Studies (yellow), Religion (pink), Spanish (purple), Journal (orange) and Computer (brown). The extra notebooks will be stored in the classroom for future use.  

File Folder: Math, ELA, Reading, Social Studies, Science, Religion, Computer, Take Home Notes, Schedule, and Tickler.  

I am asking that you print a blank academic calendar (Sept.-June: 1 page/month) to be used for the Tickler. I will explain the purpose of the Tickler at "Meet the Teacher" night.

If you have any questions or concerns prior to the start of school, please feel free to contact me.

I am looking forward to a wonderful and productive school year!

Mrs. Merilee Lehmuller
