Welcome to all incoming fifth graders and parents for the 2020 - 2021 school year! 

I teach using lots of high interest and engaging activities.  I hope you bring your most comfortable shoes because you will be moving often!  I will ask you to bring your best effort and I will do the same.  Learning and reaching new levels isn't always easy but we will use our Growth Mindset and keep on trying! You will be amazed at all you learn this year!  

You will be reading a book of choice everyday and learning how to make a commercial to advertise it. We will be doing the 40 Book Challenge this year! I hope you enjoy using technology because you will be using it every day as you access our Google Classroom, use Flip Grid, and other platforms.  

Parents are highly encouraged to download the SeeSaw App as we will be using it throughout the year to quickly communicate with families. Students will also use it to share their thinking and to collaborate. 

I am honored to be working with each of you for the coming school term.  Please don't hesitate to reach out and contact me with any concerns or questions.  

Thank you, 


Mrs. Atwell
