Welcome to a new year! I am really excited about being your child’s teacher

this year. Fifth grade is going to be a year full of fun, learning, and lots of adventures and I can’t wait to see what the year has in store for us! Your child will be]]] given tools and the opportunities to really explore knowledge. Much of your child’s success will be determined by the communication between school and home. I would like to welcome not only your child to my class, but you as well. I consider us a team in working towards a quality education for your child. I look forward to meeting each of you at our open house on September 13th. Please subscribe to my blog iblog.dearbornschools.org/alsabay. I will be posting weekly spelling lists, weekly focus, and  daily homework assignments. I will also post upcoming events such as test dates, late start dates,etc. on the iBlog. If you have any questions or concerns about any of the work or tests, please do not hesitate to call or email. I will not be able to speak during teaching time, however I would  be happy to speak to you before 8:20 am or after school after 3:35pm or set an appointment


Each day your child may bring in his/her own healthy snack.  Some

healthy snacks ideas are:  fruits and vegetables.  Your child may also bring in a water bottle with a top
