5th Grade – Kemp

2015-2016 School Year

Dear Families,

Welcome!  A new school year is upon us and we are very excited for the opportunity to work with you and your student this year.

Fifth grade is an important traditional year for students.  They are moving from the primary phase of their education into the intermediate stage.  Students will be focusing on building independent skills as a learner.

Many of the items that we will be using this year have already been ordered for the classroom.  The one supply that each child will need is a PENCIL BOX!  Keep in mind that desks do not allow for much storage space, and a pencil box will help keep pencils, pens, and highlighters organized.  We are also asking students to bring in a 3 RING BINDER.  Students need to have at least an 1 1/2 inch binder.  We are starting to transition to a middle school model of keeping school materials organized.  If your child would like to bring in other supplies, please see Supply List.

I am looking forward to working with you and your student.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at 269-963-5851 ext. 15.  Don’t forget school starts Tuesday, September 8th.

Sincerely,
5th Grade Teacher
