  • I enjoyed my years at golden grove elementary and I also hope that my old 5th grade teacher Mrs.Aniba has a great first year. I hope that I have a great year at western pines which is across the street but anyways I just want the new 5th graders to know that there will be ups and downs and you think at first that there's gonna be tons of homework but no it's actually easy and fun sometimes and I`m not just saying that because I`m smart! I just hope you have a great first year and by the way sorry for all that noise we made down the hall on the last day but you`ll make louder noise you're always more excited than us! Well in cunclusion I wish you GOODLUCK all of last year's 5th grade does and WISH ME SOME TOO!
