• Dear Students,
    There are a lot of "unknowns" as we begin this school year together. Please know that I am here to help you in any way possible. The following points are also found on a poster that I made for our classroom. Please take a minute to read them and know each one will be demonstrated throughout our time together. Fifth grade is a big step in both your educational and social processes, and I look forward to being a part of your growth and success!
                  1) I believe in you.
                  2) I trust you.
                  3) You are listened to.
                  4) You are cared for.
                  5) You are very important to me.
                                                         Mr. Tortoriello
