    Dear 5 GU Students, Parents and Guardians,


    Welcome to 5 GU!  I am so excited to be your 5th grade teacher for homeroom and/or math and science this year! You also will be working with Mrs. Nagy for ELA and Social Studies.  I know this year will be an awesome year full of many great learning opportunities.


    I hope you all had a relaxing summer, I know I did. I spent many days on the beach, which is one of my favorite things to do.  I look forward to hearing about how you all have been since June.

    I can’t wait to start getting to know each and every one of you!  Each one of you brings your own unique qualities and that is what makes you and our class so special.  I believe that we all: teachers, parents, and students, must work together in order to help each of you be as successful as you can be.  Working together is key in helping you reach the goals you set for yourself. This year we must focus on being kind and patient with each other because we know that many things may change as we go.  


    There will be many things that we need to continue to do such as get used wearing our masks all day and being very flexible.  We may need to change how we do things as we are going if we find a smoother, more productive system.   When it comes to the masks, you may want to have a back up one in your bookbag in case the strap breaks


    Parents and guardians... I believe that it is more important than ever to have great communication between home and school and for students to feel safe and comfortable.  You and I will mostly be communicating through google classroom (you will get an invite to your email), email, Class Dojo (which you should have received an invite to or will soon if you haven't used it before), and telephone.   If at any time you have a question, I urge you to please contact me so that I may be of assistance.  My email is kgunn@lehsd.org .   If you have a preferred email, address, or phone number, please let me know.   


    I am super excited to go on this learning journey with you and hope you are all ready!  

    Welsome to 5th grade!

    Miss Gunn
