I'm so excited that you're here!!! This year is going to be awesome!

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to your new fifth grade classroom! This school year will bring many exciting adventures and new challenges. I hope that you come to school this year expecting it to be the best you could ever imagine. I am thrilled to meet all of you and learn more about each of you.

    You are an important part of our classroom community. We are counting on your ideas and actions to make this year fabulous. Fifth grade is set up so that you will gain experience working with more than one teacher. We will be exploring puzzling aspects of math, the adventurous world of reading, and the power of writing. You will also have the opportunity to become a mad scientist and a world explorer.

    Here at East Woods, fifth grade is a very important year. You are now the oldest students in our building, and you are the leaders in our school and community. This is a great responsibility and a gift that I hope you will embrace with integrity, positivity, and confidence. I hope you will come to our classroom with an open mind and a determined heart.

    I’m looking forward to all that is to come. :)

    Mr. Sivert
