Welcome to 5th Grade!

Dear Incoming Fifth Grade Students & Families,

   I would like to welcome you to fifth grade! It is a year in which I strive to prepare you (& your children) for the big transition into Middle School. We work very hard and cover a lot of material. The history of our great country, the United States of America, is the focus of the year. From the overnight immigration trip on the Star of India ship, to the interactive Walk Through The Revolution, to the incredible State Fair, we cover a lot of information! I love what I teach. 

   I am excited to welcome you into my class - I know many of you from last year, and from your siblings who I've been privileged to have had, and I look forward to a great year with you! We are lucky to have a couple of new students, too, who we cannot wait to warmly welcome to Nativity! I feel blessed to work in such a loving, faithful, and kind community. 

   Also, all incoming fifth and sixth graders are encouraged to sign up for fun and educational 
summer back-to-school workshops that I will be teaching, to strengthen both Language Arts and Math skills for the next school year:
Language Arts Week: 8/7-8/11, 9-12pm
Math Week: 8/14-8/18, 9-12pm

   Please contact me at showard@thenativityschool.org if you'd like your son/daughter to attend. The more students the better, and it's a great way to get those brains back in school-mode!

I wish all of you a safe, fun-filled summer.

If you have any questions over the summer, please feel free to email me. I'll see you in August!


Miss Shannon Howard :)
