    Welcome to fifth grade! I am very excited about the opportunity to get to know you. Fifth grade will be a bigger challenge for us to learn higher-level Chinese, math, English, and other subjects. We may keep busy, but we will gain more. I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year!
