Dear Fifth Grader,


    Summer is quickly coming to an end and another school year will soon be upon us.  We hope that you are as excited about starting fifth grade, as we are to have you in our class.


    Fifth grade will be a very busy and fun-filled year for us.  Many interesting projects, activities, and field trips have been planned to enhance and challenge you; but most of all for you to enjoy yourself while learning.  


    You will be part of the Riess/Padavano team!  Our goal is to make you a successful part of the team.  Mrs. Padavano will be teaching language arts and social studies and I will be teaching mathematics and science.


    Time will be given each day for a light snack.  We suggest something healthy such as: fruit, cheese and crackers, as well as a juice drink, or water.


    Please visit the supply link on my webpage for a list of grade-level supplies needed for the upcoming school year.  Supplies should be brought to school on the first day.  


    We know you aren’t quite ready for your summer to end, but we are looking forward to a successful and enjoyable year with you!  



    Mrs. Riess
