Welcome to Mrs. Wissell's Fifth Grade Class!It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge ~ Albert EinsteinWe are embarking on an exciting journey in room 318. In fifth grade we will expand on the knowledge and organization acquired in fourth grade to get ready for the curriculum of middle school and beyond. It is my goal to instill a love of learning while encouraging good habits of responsibility, independence and respect. The students of 5W will become critical thinkers, problem solvers, teammates and friends.Students of 5W will also have Mrs. Nancy Costanzo for Reading, Writing and Humanities. We are very excited about our partnership!In addition to academics, fifth grade includes many fun and exciting events including Ramsey Alive, Band, and LEAD. We are going to have an amazing year!If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. A great partnership between parents and teacher will ensure student success.
