Dear 5th Grade Scholars,

Welcome to 5th grade! My name is Mrs. Horvath, and I am in room 10. I am so excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year.
We are going to be very busy in room 10 all year! We will focus on becoming confident readers, writers, and thinkers. We will practice problem solving, asking great questions, and working together cooperatively in groups. We will develop and sharpen our math skills with interactive lessons and hands-on activities. We will learn about early American history and as historians, learn about stories from the past. As scientists, we will investigate and experiment many exciting topics. Most importantly, as a class community, we will journey together by setting goals, supporting and encouraging one another, celebrating our accomplishments, and learning together as a TEAM. I am ready to get started!
I know it might be a little hard to go back to school after a long summer break. Sometimes, it is easy to get nervous and anxious for the first day. I want you to know that I will be standing at the door to room 10, ready to greet you with a big smile. My classroom is set, and I have BIG plans for a fabulous year! See you on September 6th!

Sincerely,
Mrs. Horvath
