Welcome to 5th grade!

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we begin the school year, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as your child’s 5th grade teacher! This is my 4th year at Springdale School and I am beyond thrilled and excited to have your child as my student.

I believe your child’s educational experience is not just something that happens in school for six and a half hours, one hundred and eighty days a year. A child’s education is influenced by many factors, is a process that transcends the school day, continues at home, on the playground, and during any social context in which your child is engaged. Education is about community. As parents and members of this community, it is crucial that you continue to take part in your child’s educational experience. Through this partnership, we can establish an enriched educational experience for your child.

I will work hard to promote a meaningful and positive 5th grade year for your child. I look forward to meeting you and your child this September! Please continue to check this site regularly as I will be posting information regarding your child’s school days, curriculum, reminders, photos, etc. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Ms. Gray
