5th Grade 2018/2019 School Year

  Kathy Somma

If you would like to get in touch with me, you can call the office at 718-236-4791 to set up an appointment, or I  could call you back after or before school hours.  You can also email at ksomma@stathanasiusacademy.org I will get back to you as soon as I can.


I will be at St. Athanasius Academy, for  drop off and pick up of items.  We will be collecting any textbooks or reading books that belong to the school, on Wednesday June 24th. Because of the Corona restrictions we need to meet in staggered intervals.  Below is a chart with your time to come to the school yard and pick up and drop off school items.  The students were notified and asked to email if a certain time was needed.  Please email if you cannot make this time.  If you come off schedule, I’m sorry but you will need to wait for an opening.  If you have students in other classes, please contact the teacher with the time request and the teachers can coordinate together for one pickup. Students will not be permitted in the school yard.

Image result for back to school logoI hope everyone had a magnificent summer.   I spent some of my summer planning some exciting things we can do to make learning even more fun.  I hope you all kept up on your reading and math skills.  That will help us get a jump start on 5th grade,  and all the new topics we will tackle.  Our fist priority is getting our classroom in order.  I will be heading to school the last week in August to do just that.  You can help too.  Below is a list of items that will put you on the right track, for  starting the year on the right foot.  Please bring these items the first day of school.  

8 notebooks  (no spiral notebooks please)


Pens  (blue or black)  

3 Folders  

2 Book Socks  (for covering texts)

Clear contact paper (for covering workbooks)
