Mrs. Fountain Webpage - FIFTH GRADE ON THE MOVE!
Welcome to the 2015-2016 School Year!
"We as teachers must clarify the reasons for our instructional choices and find ways to make them clear to students so they are informed and motivated."
-Marilyn Burns (1995)
Dear Parents and Students:
The exciting start of the new year is an ideal time for parents and students to talk about setting goals for the future.
I encourage you to take time to help kids feel positive about learning by creating a positive learning environment at home.
I am forever reminded that this work of providing every student with a quality education is the most important, most rewarding work I could ever do. Together we can continue to make this a successful year for our students.
Please contact me if you have any question regarding your child's educational progress. I may be reached at 716-816-3370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
