Welcome Back To School!

Dear Students,

Hi! My name is Mrs. Garrett and I’m going to be your teacher for the upcoming school year. I am thrilled about all of the units and activities I have planned for the first trimester. We will begin the year studying electricity and magnetism.

I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades over the past six years, and I am eager to begin the school year with all of the fourth and fifth grade students at the Summit. I am married to Josh Garrett, and we have a six month old son named Ben. We live on a farm in Sparta with two miniature donkeys, 35 chickens, two ducks and two dogs. Part of our farm is pasture and part is woods, and we love to walk the trails we have made through the woods and pick berries. I also love to spend time in the garden. I can’t wait to find out more about you!

In our classroom we will form a community of learners. I hope to learn as much from you as you learn from our class. We will have many hands on activities and we will use computers to research all of the major units of the school year and to write papers and presentations. We will also have plenty of guest speakers and visitors throughout the year. I can’t wait for us to get started and I will meet you all soon!


Mrs. Garrett
