Welcome to Fifth Grade!!
We will be having a working snack in the classroom, so please send in a healthy snack and water, as well as tree-nut free due to food allergies in the classroom. We enjoy celebrating birthdays, so if you plan on sending in special treats please make sure they are tree-nut free, since we have food allergies in the classroom. Our first field trip will take place on Monday, November 13, 2017. We will be going to Nassau BOCES, in Brookville to participate in Project Adventure.
