Weekly Newsletters:
I have made a classroom website. It is: In our schools going green effort, I will no longer be sending home a hard copy of the newsletter in Friday Folders. This will be the last one you receive in the Friday Folder. From now on, you can view the newsletter on my website listed above under the Weekly Newsletters tab at the very top of the website. You can simply view the newsletter from the site or print it out at your leisure. You can access the website from a smart phone, tablet, or computer. There is also TONS of info on this website that may be helpful to either you or your child. Check it out and let me know what you think or leave any suggestions you have on the Classroom Blog tab. When the website is fully finished, and as I start to feel more comfortable with it, I will have students blog on the site and make it more interactive and conducive to our classroom learning.

E-mail Blast:
I have set-up an e-mail blast going out to all of my classroom parents. If you did not receive this e-mail, first check your spam folder. If you still do not see it, please send in a note or e-mail me at and GIVE ME YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS! I occasionally use this e-mail blast as a method of communication for parents. Thank you for your support in your childs 5th grade learning adventure!
