Hi Parents and Students,

Welcome back to school and welcome to my new classroom blog!  You can use this blog to check on homework assignments and learn about what is going on in Room 12 and the fifth grade as a whole.  This year we will be taking part in many exciting new initiatives involving technology.  One of the most important will be the 1:1 ipad environment that the students will be working in.  During the first few weeks of school each child in the fifth grade will receive their own ipad to use in school.  Through the use of district approved learning apps the children will be engaged in new ways of learning and sharing what they know.  I will keep you updated on the progress of these technology initiatives through my posts on this blog. As we continue on this journey together I am sure we will increase our productivity and our potential to be the best learners we can be.  Feel free to contact me with any questions you have about technology or any other classroom initiatives.
