I hope you are as excited to begin the year as I am. It's a fresh start, and I can't wait to meet you and begin learning with you. There are many changes at Fox Hill. The office was remodeled and Mrs. Moules and Mrs. McCall have new offices! We have a new guidance counsellor and a new reading specialist. Of course being in fifth grade is the biggest change for you. You will have many more responsibilities, and opportunities to show your growth. One way we are all going to grow is in our use of technology. Fourth and fifth graders will have Ipads to use along with the more familiar tools like whiteboards, notebooks, and pencils. I spent the morning learning about some very cool apps, so I tried one to make a movie to give you a peek into our classroom. I hope you enjoy it, and I look forward to seeing your movies as we learn about explorers, cells, fractions, great authors,The Constitution, poems, and most important: each other!
