Welcome to Mrs. Wills'
5th Grade Class!
We are the
Hello! I am excited about working with your child. I believe that communication, responsibility, and organization is critical in the success of students. Please be aware that I am here to educate, encourage, and assist your child. I feel honored to be teaching him or her this year. I believe that in order for your child to be successful, there must be open lines of communication. I feel that it is important for students, as well their parents, to communicate their feelings or concerns to the teacher. Please feel free to contact me through email, your child's agenda, or a phone call if you have any questions or concerns. My classroom will be creative and engaging; however, we will be working hard and learning many new things. Please understand that respect and responsibility are expected in my class. It is very important that you read the newsletters that I send home each week and check your child's agenda DAILY for any updates, changes, or news. I look forward to meeting all of you and working with each of you to make this a successful year!
