    Welcome to Mrs. Sinkaus' 5th Grade Reading Class Website 

    Students, Welcome back to the 2021-2022 school year! School begins on Wednesday, September 8. The bell rings at 8:40 am, upon which time students should make their way to their homerooms. 

    My homeroom is room 505. It is the 4th door on the right-hand side of the 4th/5th grade hallway. 

    Remember, masks are now required to enter the building.
