-Welcome to my homeroom! I hope everyone had a great summer and is ready for an exciting school year. I know the transition to fifth grade can seem overwhelming for parents and students alike. However, you don’t need to worry we will have plenty of activities the first week of school to get everyone acquainted with one another and feeling comfortable with the new building.
Walker is a wonderful school is a great school and I love teaching fifth grade here! The students are great and the staff is friendly. The school has a lot of opportunities for students to get involved with clubs and extra-curricular activities. So, it is easy to meet new people and make friends.
Each grade level at Walker is divided into three team. The fifth grade teams are Illinois State, Alabama, and Ohio State. My homeroom is part of the Ohio State Team. Mr. Doody, Mrs. Bednarz, and Ms. Hoody’s classrooms are also part of our team. We eat lunch together, share a common gym time, and get together throughout the school year for fun activities.
This Friday you will have the opportunity to see our classroom and drop off your supplies. Our parent curriculum night is on Wednesday, August 3oth. Please, see the school calendar for more details. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns parents feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m looking forward to the upcoming school year and meeting all of you!
