MATH ROCKS!!!!!
 
Parents and Guardians, 
 
I am so excited to soon be able to meet you at our Back To School night on September 8th, 2016.  It will be at this time that I will share with you what is expected of your child in fifth grade mathematics.  We are going to have a great year filled with rigor, skill building and problem solving not only in math but also in life.  Daily, we will work together to create a solid foundation in mathematics for each and every fifth grade student to ensure that she/he will find success as we move onto higher domains and areas of math.
