             Hello!  Welcome to fifth grade!  I have an amazing year planned with tons of fun hands-on learning activities that will make you excited to be back at school....even though summer vacation was pretty great!  This summer I spent my time kayaking, camping, swimming, and playing games with my three boys.  But now I am back into the swing of things and can't wait to see all of your smiling...sleepy faces on the first day of school:)  A link to the supplies we will need is HERE.  School supplies are on sale now.  Also, start looking for a 100% cotton black t-shirt, so we can create our galaxy projects.  Please plan to bring your supplies the first day of school, or better yet, stop by the day before and say hi!  Also be sure to join you private Facebook page at CCCSfifthgrade :)
