Dear Fifth Grade Student,
Tomorrow you will be entering the front doors of Holy Rosary School as Fifth Graders! Fifth Grade will be a year when you will learn many things about the environment, the formation of our country, and many other topics such as fractions and the seven Sacraments. You will also have the opportunity to grow closer to your fellow classmates throughout the year, and to develop a unique bond that will only happen once in your life.
Many of you might already know me from seeing me in the hallway or around school, but I would like to formally introduce myself to you. I am Ms. Semandiris and I enjoy writing, reading, meeting diverse people while traveling, and taking long walks. I love teaching Fifth Grade at Holy Rosary because I get to spend my day with a wonderful staff and students that teach me something new every day.
We will be switching classes regularly this year and you will have the opportunity to experience several different teachers. The first few weeks of school will be set up so that we have ample time to practice the procedures for switching classes.
My advice for you as a new Fifth Grade student is to come to class every day with a positive attitude, and a Christian outlook on life. In the Fifth Grade, we will strive to be a community of people who respect one another and help each other in times of need. If each person makes a commitment to do this then we will have a successful year.
I am extremely excited to see all of your smiling faces on the first day of school!!
Fifth Grade Teacher
