Fifth Grade

Welcome to fifth grade! 🐟💮🌅🌴

We believe …

  • that every student can learn at the highest levels.
  • that a partnership between school and home is essential for student success.
  • that a diverse community enriches every one of its members.

Our classroom is …

  • a safe place where we can be ourselves without judgment.
  • a place where learning is more important than performing.
  • a place where we help and push each other to work hard, make mistakes, and grow.

You can expect us to …

  • do our best to get to know our students and love them for who they are.
  • meet students where they are at and support them in ways that will both help and challenge them. 
  • keep each student’s best interest in mind when making decisions. 
  • offer all students challenging opportunities that extend their thinking and learning.

💙 Ms. Toyama, Mrs. Wheeler, and Mr. Delaney
