Welcome, DES Seniors!

  • Dear DES Seniors and Extended Classroom Family Members,

    I am so excited about all of the educational adventures that we will have together this year! 

    From the birth and development of our nation to relevant current events our Social Studies curriculum will span approximately 2-300 years. 

    Additionally, in Language Arts we will be navigating our way successfully through literary strategies that are proven to increase fluency, vocabulary, writing and comprehension.  Both mastering and enriching these foundational skills are key in applying critical thinking to core concepts.  

    In short, through focus and commitment, growth will be inevitable for your child this year!  For, I honestly believe, that when parents, students and teachers work together as a team, there is very little that they cannot accomplish! 

    Here’s to an awesome 5th grade year! 


    Ms. Wilson
