Fifth Grade

June 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As the end of year season begins, the fifth grade team honors the achievements of its learners this year. Students have gone above and beyond despite these challenging times. We know that without your continuous support, our students would not succeed in the way they have.

It has been such an amazing year watching our students grow and believe our students will succeed in whatever they do. We are so proud of them!

As student prepare to transition to middle school, we encourage our parents to ensure that students are reading daily during the summer for at least 20 minutes. Please utilize the access all students have to www.myon.com. Thousands of books are available for students to experience electronically.

As always, we want to thank our parents for being supporters of the learning at P.S. 274. We wish you and your family a great month of June, and a happy and healthy summer. Thank you for all the work you have done in our community this year!

Sincerely,

5th Grade Team
