THANK YOU FOR READING! IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR, PLEASE ASK ANY FIFTH GRADE TEACHER. Don’t let the fear of the time it will take to do something stand in the way of your doing it. The time will pass anyway; we might just as well put that passing time to the best possible use. -Earl Nightingale
