Grade 5



September 9, 2020

Dear fifth grade parents, 
       Welcome back to school! This will be an exciting year for your children. My name is Mrs. Seredvick and I am very thrilled to be your child’s fifth grade teacher. As an experienced educator, I understand the importance of a solid educational foundation. I look forward to working with you to make this a wonderful school year for your children. My background includes six years as a Catholic school teacher in both Pre-K, first grade and second grade classes and more than ten years in a variety of long-term public school substitute assignments, including fourth grade. Last school year I was the fourth-grade teacher and the year before I was the first grade teacher here at Hoboken Catholic Academy.
       Your children’s classroom is in room 206 on the second floor. Art class will be on Monday, gym on Tuesday, music on Wednesday, Spanish on Thursday, and computers on Friday. I would like to remind you to have your child continue to read every night, since it is one key to becoming a successful student.
       These first days of school will be very exciting as the students get familiar with their new surroundings and routines. I am here to help you and your children transition into fifth grade as smoothly as possible. I look forward to meeting you all virtually on Back to School Night on September 23rd. I am so excited to start our year of learning, sharing, and exploring together.

Mrs. Seredvick
