Welcome to 5th grade!

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Brenda
Abrams and I'm honored to be your child’s 5th-grade teacher. I am an Iowa
State University graduate and this will be my 33rd year of teaching, but 7th
year in Tomball ISD.

During my vacation, I enjoy spending time with family and traveling. Each year,
we try to visit a new location, but traveling to the warm islands of Hawaii is
still one of my favorites. There is something about listening to the ocean
that makes a relaxing vacation.

My family values education and believes that it opens many opportunities for
the future. My husband and I have two girls that are attending college. Emma,
the oldest, recently finished her Masters Program and is now working on her
Doctorate at Texas Tech University in biology. Kelcie, the youngest, is in
her last semester at Texas Tech University pursuing a public relations degree.
We love them dearly and are very proud of their efforts. So please know that your
child’s best interests are my first priority throughout each and every school day.

I am looking forward to working with you and your child in reaching his or her
own full potential. We will have many wonderful experiences this
year with opportunities to learn and grow in the days ahead.

Merry Christmas

Dear Parents, 
I just want to give you a big thank you for all of your time, encouragement, and sweet emails throughout the first semester. It has been a joy to teach your children and get to know them. Although it was a bumpy start with the weather, the children have been able to experience many learning activities while at school.  It could not have been as special or meaningful without your help.  
Wishing you and your family the best Christmas and Happy New Year memories.  See you in 2018!

Lunch for December 22, Early Release Day, will be:
Cheese stuffed breadsticks for the main entrée.
