Ellis Island


As you saw yesterday in your child’s Tuesday Tracker, our Ellis Island simulation is just around the corner.  This is an amazing activity for all of 5th graders that teaches the history of Immigration of our European ancestors to Ellis Island.  We need lots of volunteers to make this happen.  If you would like to volunteer a few hours, please sign up on the sign up genius link below.  Thank you for all you  support.

Welcome to 5th Grade!!

Hi! I am so excited to start this new school year!  I look forward to meeting everyone on Monday, July 30 for Eagle Day.  I’ll be in my class from 8-10!  Our first day of school is Wednesday, August 1, and that’s when our adventure begins.  It will be a great year!

If you already got your supplies, great!  If you haven’t, will you please make the following changes:

Instead of glue sticks, please bring in 2 bottles of Elmer’s Glue.

When you get the Expo markers, please get  skinny Expo markers instead of the larger ones. 

I would also like everyone to have a pair of earphones.  

Please subscribe to our blog on the right so you will get a notification when I update this blog.

Thank you!!


Here we are wrapping up the end of your child’s elementary school career!  It has been such a pleasure being their teacher!  Here are a couple of reminders for the last week and a half:

  1. Awards Day – In this week’s Tuesday Tracker, I will send invitations with students who will be receiving awards on May 22.

  2. Luncheon – Please remember to pre-order your lunch for our 5th grade luncheon on the last day of school. There will not be any food to purchase the day of the event. Order forms were in the Tuesday Tracker last week, additional forms here

  3. Career Portfolio Presentations – Please bring in completed career projects on Friday. (Thursday for a prize!) Students may dress up, bring props, etc for some extra credit. Anything to make their display engaging and interactive is great! Parents are welcome to come see our career presentations in the cafeteria Friday morning.
