Mrs. Green's Page

Welcome to 5th grade! I look forward to an exciting year filled with exploration, discovery and learning. I will post daily homework assignments below along with some helpful documents. However, each student is still responsible for writing down their homework in their planners. Students will visit the library once a week and will use the computers on wheels (COWS) throughout the year.

If you have questions, please e-mail ( or call (414.2584). I don't check the wiki discussions each day, and I may not see your message for several days!
