A Message from the Teachers
Dear 5th Grade Parents,
Fifth Grade is in full swing. We hope that all students are enjoying their final year in elementary school. This year is not only special because your children will be moving up to the next phase in their educational careers but that they are provided with an array of amazing opportunities. We ask that you reinforce the importance of this year regarding academics, accountability, and responsibility. We ask that we collaborate as one to ensure a wonderful final year at P.S.184.
Please use this website for monthly updates, helpful resources, and as a way to stay informed. We strongly encourage your child to take advantage of the LEXIA program. Maintaining our monthly virtues in school and our everyday lives will help guide our students to be College and Career ready.
Sincerely, Mrs. Giglia
