Welcome to 5th Grade

Welcome! Mrs. Connell’s 5th grade classroom is located in Rm. #7, in the middle school wing area.  I am very happy to spend this year with you teaching and learning! LIFE IS ALL ABOUT LEARNING, and we can enjoy this journey observing, questioning, inquiring, researching, analyzing, sharing and creating answers together in God’s world.

Our 2023/2024 school theme:

“Rejoice in Hope, Persevere in Prayer”
