    Dear Boys and Girls,  


    We hope that you are having a wonderful summer vacation.  We are sitting on the beach, typing this letter and enjoying the cool ocean breeze and a refreshing glass of lemonade. I, Mrs. Gronert, have spent a lot of time traveling and enjoying quality time with my daughters Alexa and Avery.  I, Mrs. Pepe, have had a very busy summer.  I spent a lot of time at the beach with my son Blake and my daughters Greyson and Rowyn. 


    As we sit here, we are thinking about September already!  Don’t worry – we have lots of fun ideas for projects and making learning fun.  You will have so many opportunities to read and write, both on your own and with partners.  We will conduct science experiments and learn about the Western Hemisphere in social studies.  There is much more but you will just have to wait and see! 


     In fifth grade, organization is the key to success.  It would be very helpful if you could arrive with all of your supplies on the first day of school.  That way we can organize and label everything together and get off to a great start.  Check out our supply list so you can get started shopping early.   


    We look forward to a fun filled and challenging year.  In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the summer! 






    Mrs. Gronert and Mrs. Pepe
