Dear Families,

I’m looking forward to being your child’s teacher next year! 

I am very invested in Glacier Park which, in my biased opinion, is the best school in the world.  My husband Andy Hanson is a 4th grade teacher and my daughter Paige will be a 5th grader here at Glacier Park too.

5th Grade is my favorite grade to teach! I love the curiosity that students have and their cooperative spirit. Next year, our main social studies units include the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.  Students will also continue with reader’s and writer’s workshop and a rich math program. Something new in 5th grade is the focus on science. Be prepared to hear about the fun investigations we will be conducting in class. It is my goal for every student to be inspired to give their best each day and to take responsibility for their learning.

Study skills and organization is something that I value, and is an integral part of my teaching program. Therefore, I ask every child to bring a 3 ring binder to and from school each day.  I have attached a supply list for you.  Please have your student bring these supplies on the first day of school unpacked and ready to go.

Communication is very important to me. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any reason. I can be reached over the summer via email at hhanson@tahomasd.us .

I am already anticipating a great year ahead with your child and I look forward getting to know each of you. Have a wonderful summer and I will see you in September!

Sincerely,

Holly Hanson
