The first few days of school are unlike any others. There is a different feel coming to school knowing how excited, and nervous everyone will be. That includes the teachers!

Our focus these first two days has been to simply learn the process of doing school again. We have been setting up our school supplies and learning how to be a part of fifth grade.

I have been so pleased with how easily this group of students has fallen back into the routine at school. We have been working in groups and talking about how to “Be a Part of Our Crayon Box.” Students have been getting to know one another as well as their teachers.

Routines, procedures, rules and responsibilities that we begin now will have such a huge impact on our year. I am so happy with great start.
