5th Grade Webpage - Mrs. Julie Tummonds

 

Welcome.     

The DARE program is quickly coming to an end.  Our graduation will be Thursday, May 3rd.  Students are actively working on their essay.   

We will be having a fifth grade only field trip to the Detroit Tigers game on Thursday, April 19th. Game begins at 1:10 pm.  Admission to this game is a reward for the service squad work that our students have been doing since the beginning of fourth grade.  I have ordered enough tickets for each student to bring one chaperone free of charge.  Transportation needs to be provided for by the student's family.  Please see me with any questions.
