Dear Parents/Guardians,

Hello and welcome to Fifth Grade Team 5B!  We hope that you all have had a safe summer!  We are looking forward to meeting your child and helping them with their transition from  their elementary school to Hillcrest Intermediate.  Below is a  list of the school supplies that your child will / may need to be prepared for fifth grade and will be able to carry with them in a backpack at all times. If you are unable to purchase these materials, please don't worry. These are materials we have used in the past. 

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  See you soon and relax!

- Mr. Eric Odorcich
