    Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,


    Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 school year and fifth grade!!!  This is going to be a very exciting and busy year, so be sure you come ready to learn in September.


    This is an Integrated Co-Taught Classroom (ICT) so you will have two teachers.  Mrs. Boland is the general education teacher and Mrs. Holzapfel is the special education teacher.  We will also switch classes for science and social studies.  Mrs. Scardaci will teach both her class and Mrs. Boland’s class science and 

    Mrs. Boland will teach both classes social studies.


    Attached you will find a list of suggested school supplies.  Please note you will be responsible for replenishing supplies when needed.


    Please continue reviewing your multiplication facts and reading daily.  Both will help you have a more successful fifth grade year!  


    Have a great summer and we will see you in September.




    Mrs. Boland and Mrs. Holzapfel
