This year promises to be an exciting and productive time for all of us.  Fifth grade is an adventure that we are sure your child will enjoy.  As a fifth grade team, we will work closely together to provide a variety of opportunities that will enrich the learning for each of our students.  We are excited to have your child in class, and we look forward to working as a team with you and your child this school year.  We value your input and insight as parents and we hope you will feel comfortable to share any questions or concerns you might have throughout the school year.  The school telephone number is 720-972-5780.
