Dear Fifth Grade Parents and Guardians,

Friday is my last day as the history teacher for the fifth grade.  A full-time teacher can provide consistency for the students throughout the school day.  Since I do not wish to work full-time, Mr. Weninger will take my place in his new full-time position. 

It has been a true joy to share my love of this subject for over 12 years.  My hope is that archaeologists, historians, and history educators will emerge from the ranks of these young scholars.  However, my dream is that my students become parents who pass along the important lessons of history to their own children.

With my warmest wishes for their continued success,

Kathleen McLarn
