    Dear Students and Families:

         Welcome to my fifth grade class in Room 28!!  I am very excited to get to know each and every one of you!  I hope you all had a safe and healthy summer, and maybe even managed to have some fun!  This is going to be an adventurous year for you and me as we learn fun new ways to work online together.

         Most of you probably know me as Mrs. Rosefield, the 5th grade teacher, but you may not know that I am also a dancer and choreographer.  I hope you will dance with me this year.  Another role I play is, "mom" for my two amazing daughters.  Delaney is 18 and graduated from Bella Vista High School last year, and Natalie is 17 and is a senior at Bella Vista.  I talk about them and my husband, Mr. Rosefield, a lot, so I'm sure you'll get to know them too.  Maybe they can even join one of our Teams Meetings.

         As fifth graders, and in an effort to help you get ready for middle school next year, you will be required to exercise both self-control and common sense in my classroom (virtual and physical).  Talk to your family about these concepts.  I’m sure you will agree that all students have the right to learn in an environment where manners matter and learning comes first.

         Please be sure to have a quiet working area at home, away from distractions such as the TV, other electronics, siblings, animals, etc.  I understand that this may be challenging, but it will be VERY important for you learning during this time where you will not be here in the room with me.  Also, please have all of your school supplies ready and with you during our learning time.  See the "Distance Learning Supplies" list below.

         Although there are still many unknowns about this coming school year, we are hopeful that we will get to go to Sly Park in January, and we KNOW that you are now the oldest, wisest, and coolest (???) kids at school!!!  I can't wait to meet you!!
